Photography Packages & Rates

We like simplicity, you hire us and you pay once. We take your pictures, process them, post them into an online album (password protected if desired) and give them to you on disk. There is no sit down to look over print packages or additional charges for a disk of your images; you already have the disk and a print authorization.

The only prints we offer are at conventions and other events where we bring our full studio, and those are 4x6” prints for a buck apiece. We don’t try to pad the profit by offering expensive photo print bundles or ala carte print prices. We see no need to charge between $10-$50 for an 8×10″ print when you can order it yourself online, from a highly rated and reputable company, for around $3.

Our experience is wide-ranging, from portraits, head shots, senior pictures, roaming group photo shoots, dances, parties and of course roaming photojournalist coverage of conventions, running convention photo rooms and we’ve photographed several traditional and even costume-themed weddings. This means, among other things, that we’re able to get a lot of pictures in a short time and we’re used to working with the nervous and camera shy models as well.

TL:DR We take pictures, not prints and expensive print bundles. You pay once and get your images on disk.

Yes, that is the same model in each shot.

We accept cash, Paypal, and credit cards.

Your date is not reserved until a non-refundable retainer of 20% of the event fee is paid.

The remainder is due before we take our first shot, unfortunately we've been bit before.

Notes:

Basically, I process my shots to the following criteria:

The differences between a journalism and proof image can be very subtle, while many photographers take pictures with the thought that they can correct as needed in Lightroom or Photoshop, I try to compose and adjust in camera so that my post-processing is minimal. My goal is for 75% of shots to be usable as proofs without any processing.

The 3 images below are an example of the process. The image to the left is “as shot” its a good picture, it was effected by the light of the day. There were wildfires in Southwest Idaho and there was a lot of smoke in the air, so colors were muted and the light has a silver cast to it. Not a big deal but it was also overcast and I was set to shoot a bit darker, I take shots in groups of 3 and as the shutter was doing its thing, the cloud moved and it got a lot brighter. So, the photojournalism shot is a perfectly good picture; but, the proof shows that it can be a more interesting picture with a little light and color correction. Finally, in the retouched image, I cropped it in a bit closer to feature the model more and adjusted hair and skin tones and did a bit of minor cosmetic adjusting as well.
