Our Commercial Photography Rates

Commercial rates – 2023

Are you curious about our professional photographer rates?  Our rates will vary depending upon your specific needs.  All our clients have unique requirements and therefore require individually tailored quotations.

In most cases, we provide a PDF quote after hearing about our client’s specific brief, however as a very rough guide below are some typical guide prices for our commercial photography services. Entry points are from as low as £125, so we can fit within most marketing budgets.  Here’s a summary of our professional photographer rates.

1st-hour rate from £125 – subsequent hours charged at £75

HALF DAY rate (up to 4 Hours) : from £350

FULL DAY rate (up to 8 Hours) : from £550

All prices are exclusive of VAT

For larger or more complex projects with multiple days of shooting a discounted day rate will be offered.

Additional charges:

  • Post Processing: (general sharpening, colour balance, exposure and artifact removal); generally 1 hour on a half day shoot or 2 hours on a full day. – this excludes major manipulation/retouching. Manipulation and retouching is costed on an image per image basis and is only undertaken after a discussion with the client.
  • Bespoke online proofing gallery.
  • Depending on the client specifications and intended usage of the resultant images, an image license may also factor into the overall costing. This is costed on a per job basis.
  • Larger projects usually require an assistant. Assistants allow us to complete your work more effectively and cover most of the lighting breakdown and moving between sets.
  • Traveling expenses depend upon the location of the shoot. 50 pence per mile is our charge for jobs further than a 20-mile radius surrounding Manchester.
  • Travel time to your shoot is charged at £15 per hour, if the travel time exceeds 1 hour.
  • Hotels, flights and expenses (for UK and non-UK commissions) are charged on at cost + 5%.

For PR and corporate portraiture work, the above prices may not be applicable and will be quoted for on a job-by-job basis.

Delivery of images is by one of the following choices: direct download via the proofing gallery, email (file size permitting) or via bulk data Smash transfer or similar.
