No smoke and mirrors.
I value transparency and I'm interested in a "let's get this done" mentality. Here's the difference I offer, I've accounted for my time and value in my product photography rate. I have no interest in nickel-and-diming you. I'm not going to bug you about attributing me on Instagram or your website. There's no negotiating usage rights or licenses for your brand photos,
You contract the photos, you use the photos--that's it.
If you want me to set up and work on a branding photo shoot for eight hours and get twelve finals retouched for your website, content, or other commercial branding-- You'll already know the value.
If you want me to take candid event photos for an eight hours and get hundreds of photos--You'll already know the value.
Keep in mind, that a two hour product shoot can result in anywhere from six to eighty photos depending on what you need. On-going clients can work out modified rates that work best in a given scenario.
Whatever the case, you need the best photos for the best price.
