All Photography and Retouching is based on time at the studio.
Rates are £75 first hour and £60 per hour after this. A full 8 hours day is discounted to £440.
All time in the studio is included, including set up, photography, and retouching. As it is hard for new customers to understand what can be done in an hour I also have estimate price per item based on past experience, but these are estimates as all work based on time.
Prices can be as little as £2-3 per item including retouching, but please see relevant photography prices above. Please note these prices are for standard photography of this website and sometimes if you want Hi-end Images you will need extra time for the photos and retouch. Also the larger the quantity the cheaper it becomes.
To get these prices we need to be efficient with time so the client should bring along examples of what they want on phone, and help lay out the item as i photograph and retouch. This way it will be cheaper and more cost effective.
Work in the studio is always paid on the day. We take cash, bank transfer before or on the day, and also debit and credit cards (cards have 3% transaction charge added on all amounts).
You receive all the images on the day – Mannequin and Jewellery photography have a 3 working day turnaround. In these cases you pay for time at the studio and then the extra retouching cost after delivery of images.
All work is based on time £75 first hour and £60 per hour after that. For a model option minimum 2 hours booking, model cost is £90 for first 2 hours then £35 per hour after.
Price estimates below are usually accurate and work out the same as time based work. They are there so you can estimate final cost.
