Rates vary depending on the situation and the subject matter. Factored into a price quote is the cost of travel, materials, post production work, additional supplies required to do specific jobs (i.e. batteries, rain cover, extra lighting) and my time. Prices are individual and vary from client to client as to meet the specific needs of the individual. Prices listed below are only an example of the what had become the average for pricing for the majority of my automotive shoots.
My Precious Package - $250
This starter package is much like the car or other project when you first bought it, simple and raw, heck it may even be still in progress. It includes 3-4 keepers of that project of yours to live on your wall as a testament to your hard work. An easy, one-location shoot that best reflects the car. Shot from several angles it can include; rear, front, interior and a portrait shot (yes cars do pose!) Includes 3-4 prints of the vehicle up to 8 x 10 and/or a poster print.
Class 3 Package - $500
Admit it, you love the sound of that engine, the feel of the shifter, the way it handles turns and curves in the road. You frequently sneak away to the garage or shop to admire her/him to sit there and gaze at your hard work. Why not have some photos to show off to your friends and family? This package involves 2 locations with the possibility of the shoot being spread over 2 different days or time periods. Perhaps the metallic red in the body really only shows up at night under the street lamps but you still want shots in the sun. You walk away with 4-6 prints up to 8 x 10, 1 poster print and a usb stick with 10-15 images.
