PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES & PRICING
Our photography pricing is based on the following criteria due to the time required with lighting calibration between object types. These prices are based on high volume photography for eCommerce and product ranges.
|Number of Images||Price per Image*|
*Please note our image pricing does not include post production. For post production and deep-etching costs please read below. We also have a minimum charge of $150 so it is recommended at least 5 photos be requested.
Post production is calculated by product type. As you can appreciate some products due to their complexity will require much more retouching than others. We have tried our best to quantify the following however for an accurate price we ask that you get in touch with us!
Our standard pricing is based on opaque objects such as; Clothing, Furniture, Accessories etc. Retouching these objects is based on 50% of the photography price.
Reflective / Transparent Objects
Due to the time required to set up the shot for products such as; Tapware, Jewellery, Glassware etc. There is a 25% retouching surcharge per image that is applicable.
In many cases deep-etching is not necessary where the object has high contrast to the background. Also, where no clipping path is required (i.e. white background for e-commerce store) you may not need to have this done. If you are unsure please request an explanation in your quote.
For commercial photography rates please contact us for a quote as we would like to provide an accurate estimate to your requirements.
On-Site Photography and Mobile Setup
If shooting in our studio will not work for you, we can always come to your premises and set up a temporary studio. We can generally get within 90% of our in-house studio conditions, all we ask is that you have a room where we can control the lighting.
