ARCHITECTURE & INTERIORS PHOTOGRAPHY PROCESS & RATES

Photography Process

My architecture and interiors photography process is rooted in thoughtful, detail-oriented work. I approach each project as a collaboration with my clients to help them tell their stories and create a collection of images that reflect their unique brand.

We start each project by having a nice little talk to understand what your unique needs are. I like to learn about the brief, the challenges, and what you did to overcome them to find the story of the project. 

We will walk through the space on a site visit to get an understanding of the light, figure out the best time of day, and select compositions to create a detailed shotlist. 

On location, with my camera attached to an iPad, we will work side-by-side to create images that are perfectly staged with impeccable lighting. 

Each image we create on site will be edited and delivered. 

 

 

 

 

Architecture & Interiors Photography Rates

I operate using two basic fees: Creative Fee and Licensing & Processing Fee.

Creative Fee: This component reflects the time and skill it takes to complete the project, including preproduction tasks: Client meetings, advance site visits, and other site-specific preparation.  After the initial shoot, we spend a significant amount of time editing your images to make them perfect. This can include color correction, retouching, compositing, and preparing master files for final delivery. It is not unusual for Post Production work to consume as much time as the photography.

This payment is due at the time of booking as a deposit to secure your date.

Licensing & Usage Fee: The Licensing and Usage Fee includes non-exclusive, but unlimited and perpetual rights to use the images in marketing your brand and services both in print and digital mediums; including editorial, Trade Show Display, Corporate Brochures, Website, Social Media, Professional Competitions, and Trade Magazines.

 

 

 

Lower Photography Fees with Cost Sharing

Using the Cost-Sharing Model, you can bring in additional parties to license the images from a shoot, expanding the projects reach while significantly lowering your photography costs.

Sharing the cost of a project is a common and valuable practice. By bringing in just one additional party you can save over 30% on the architectural photography of your project. Discounts increase for each additional party brought into the photoshoot. 

Cost Sharing Example: If a photoshoot is estimated at $1,500, and one party is added to the cost share, the total becomes $1,950 ($1,500 + 30%). The new cost per-party is $975. You save $525.

Types of companies that can benefit from Cost-Sharing include: architects, developers, interior designers, product designers, manufacturers, engineers,  landscape architects, construction firms, contractors, sub-contractors, construction companies, furniture designers, flooring, and window vendors, owners/tenants, stagers, etc.

EVERY PROJECT IS DIFFERENT: There are many variables that can affect the rate of your photoshoot. For that reason, every project is quoted on a case-by-case basis.
