Pricing commercial photography is not always as straight forward process as we all may wish to be. There are many factors on which quoting fee, for commercial photography session, will be depend upon.
1. Uniqueness – Every client’s project is unique and comes with specific requirements, which on its own will require extra resources and time to achieve the final result of the initial brief.
2. Production cost – Production charges cover the cost incurred by me, the photographer, for organizing and supplying everything needed for executing the production of the images I was hired to create. For example this include – studio/equipment hire, smoke machine, assistants,logistic etc. As I mentioned in point one, every project is different and requires less or more resources to meet the client requirements.
3. Post production/editing – How many images will needed to be processed as a final product, is another crucial component when pricing commercial photography. Post production or editing process, sometimes can be very time consuming process – it all depends on the level of details needed to be enhanced or corrected.
