Many of our clients need a full day (or half day) of photography to capture a full array of photos for a website or other marketing materials. Headshots for staff or managers of the company, portraits for executives, architectural photos of the office environment and some work “action” photos for use on the website (similar to stock photography, just using your own employees) – these can all be captured in a half-day, full-day or multi-day shoot.
These commercial shoots require significant coordination, but can yield great results when executed properly. Some of our complex and highly detailed shoots will require a second photographer or a photography assistant, which can be added to the invoice. Typically, a shoot is scheduled weeks in advance. Clients assign a “point person” to work with our studio in planning the shoot. Locations are determined, lighting requirements settled upon, lists of employees to be used as “talent” need to be created and schedules for the shoot timing need to be created. The shoot is then summarized on a Commercial Photography Assignment agreement to detail the specifics of overall shoot logistics and timing, a list of the final files agreed upon and the delivery options for the final retouched files.
On the day of the shoot, STP Images Photography Studio arrives an hour early to set up the shoot locations and do one final round of scouting and light tests. Once the shoot starts, all shots on the Commercial Photography Assignment will be completed.
Within 3 business days, an online gallery of the batch of files from the shoot will be posted for client review. Once the client makes final selections of agreed upon files, STP Images Photography Studio will then fully retouch each of the agreed upon final files and deliver them via DropBox or thumb drive, whichever is preferred.
The half day rate includes four hours of total time, split between photography time and retouching time. The full day rate includes between five and eight hours of total time, split between photography time and retouching time. Multi day shoots will include a multi-day discount, dependent upon the number of days booked.
Half day rate – $950.00
Full day rate – $1,800.00
Photography Assistant – $200.00
