Normally, our rates for event photography coverage vary between $200 and $300 per hour including high resolution files and licensing. All assignments require minimums of 2 or 3 hours. Peak nights/times, Holidays, short events, and last minute bookings will normally be on the higher end. Mid-day, mid-week, longer events, and events in off-peak months will be on the lower end of the range.
Rates may also vary because of photographer availability — for events with smaller budgets and fewer elements to capture, we will normally offer associate photographers with more competitive rates. For larger events with a high production value, we have more experienced photographers accustomed to handling difficult lighting situations, staging, large groups, and an overall understanding of how to capture the best images based on who will be using them and how they will be used.
Onsite printing, USB duplication, branding packages, full image licensing buyout, headshots, slide shows, image production rush, special design services, portraits stations, custom backgrounds, studio equipment, photojournalist impersonators, and other services we offer will be quoted on a per-project basis.
We offer package specials for multi-day events, new client incentives, extended licensing packages, celebrity licensing knowledge, and sensitivity to the various needs of all parties involved in the event planning process — the planner, the vendors, and the client.
