Note

These photo rates are just a guideline and not to be considered as actual pricing since the rates vary according to the nature of the project and the complexity of the shoot/lighting/processing etc. So for the actual estimation please contact us for a quote.

For any given project the Minimum order amount is $75 or higher. All rates includes labor cost for product arrangement, photography, photo cleanup and photo touching (minor). All are included as part of the pricing – final & delivered.

Heavy Photo Retouching

When extensive changes to the photo are required like retouching, brushing, cloning, color correction, clipping paths and heavy changes to the image, an additional labor cost of $40 per hour (about 4 photos on an average per hour) will be calculated and added to the final cost. Typically projects that fall under this category involve Jewelry photography, commercial photography etc.

On-location photo shoot

If the shoot requires shooting at your facility, there is an additional setup fee of $100 added since the equipment has to be transported (less than 30 miles from Aurora IL) to the spot and arranged for the shoot and repacking and transport back after the shoot.
