Our Commercial Photographer Rates
Well I don't know about you, but nothing irritates us more than getting an invoice with a nasty surpise hidden in it, even if its an unexpected postal charge.
We treat our clients like we would like to be treated ourselves, and all of our invoices are very clear and every charge is itemised. We also never mark items up. If the courier costs are $6.70, that is what we invoice you for. The same goes for data discs, we buy in bulk and typically we charge no more than $2 for a DVD data disc.
Most of our work is charged on an hourly basis at $150 plus GST but for larger jobs that require more than 4 hours of time, we quote these prior to the job and often fix the price with half or full day rates. All of our invoices show the photographic shooting time (which includes setting up and down), almost like a 'clock-in clock-out' method.
A great deal of our commercial assignments requires post production work, from simple image processing through to a full-editing service for print and magazine ready images. This time is detailed seperately on the invoice and is charged in 5 minute units, none of this 1 hour minimum.
In terms of travel, again this is quoted before the job is undertaken but as a general rule, we charge 80c per km. Although we are based in Hamilton, we work for many commercial clients based in and around Auckland and we almost always share the travel costs with other Auckland clients, often as little as $60.
Transparent pricing and easy to read invoices......now there's a refreshing change!
If you have any further questions whatsoever just give us a call or send us an email.
