Please see below for our posted rates for Commercial Product Photography.

Commercial Product Photography Rates

The total fee will be a combination of a time-based fee for the actual photography and a per-image fee for retouching and licensing of the selected images, plus any travel related expenses.

** Creative Fees (2 hours minimum per mobilization)
Photographer – $ 275 +gst/hr
Assistant – $ 125 +gst/hr

Note that I don’t normally use assistants as I work quickly on my own using highly portable equipment, but I do have a pool of talented assistants to work with and can provide one if you think this is necessary based on the nature of the job.

** Per-image Retouching and License Fee
Up to 20 images – $50 +gst per selected image
Additional images – $25 +gst each

Each final selected image will be retouched as required and you will receive high resolution copies by digital download. A Royalty Free Commercial Use license will be granted that allows you to use the images for your business use only (no resale), with no expiry date.

** Travel Expenses
– Travel related expenses will be billed based on actual costs incurred for such things as accommodations, meals, parking, etc. required while outside of Calgary.
– A nominal mileage fee of $0.65/km also applies for travel beyond the Calgary city limits.
