(As of January 1, 2021)
Unlike typical photographers, I do not require you to buy prints or albums, you simply receive many digital image files called JPGs to use as you wish.
My rates for photoshoots in my studio or in the immediate Portland area are quite simple and consist of two parts, the photoshoot fee and the optional retouching fee.
One Hour Shoot, one location: $399.00*
Two Hour Shoot, one location: $599.00* (most popular)
Three Hour Shoot, one location: $799.00*
Four Hour Shoot, multiple locations: $999.00*
* In the studio or within one hour of the studio.
There is a 30% discount for military wives and girlfriends. Please contact me for details.
I ask for a 50% non-refundable deposit to be paid in advance by Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, cash or check to reserve your photoshoot time. If you need to reschedule and can do so at least 24 hours in advance, your deposit can be retained and applied to another date. If you give less than 24 hours notice or simply cancel, your deposit will not be refunded.
I will process and select the images that meet my quality standards. You will receive your images via Google Drive within three days. They will be medium-resolution, unretouched, logo free images. They are perfect for emailing to friends and viewing on mobile devices. You will own these images and may do whatever you wish with them. For most clients who simply want photos to share with their friends, this is all they need.
Note: it is impossible to say in advance how many images you will receive. Recent photoshoots have produced between 100 and 500 images.
$50.00 per retouched, high resolution, logo free image
If you love an image, but want all the details to be perfect, there is always Photoshop! This is a time consuming process in which wrinkles, skin blemishes and stray hairs are minimized This can easily take an hour per image. The final result will be emailed to you as a high-resolution JPG.
The Video Fee:
The video fee is in addition to the photoshoot fee. Unedited video is priced at $10 per minute and edited video is $25 per minute
If the simple fee structure above does not seem to apply to your situation, please contact me with information about your needs and budget. I will do my best to find an arrangement that meets your needs.
