Photography Rates And Fees

In most cases, we provide a PDF quote after hearing about our clients’ specific brief, however as a very rough guide below are some typical guide prices for our events and commercial photography services. Entry points are from as low as £81 inc VAT, so we can fit within most marketing budgets. Here’s a summary of our professional photographer rates.

  • HOURLY RATE £54 – There is a minimum charge of 1.5 Hours (£81) to cover the cost of editing and setup if booked for one hour's photography. The 1.5 Hour minimum charge dose does not apply for block bookings, i.e. two hours and over.

  • HALF DAY rate (up to 4 Hours): from £216

  • FULL DAY rate (up to 8 Hours): from £432

These rates include our photographer attending the event and all the images captured at the assignment and presented via a secure download link as low res and high res files. You will own the full licence to the images for use in any media over an unlimited period.

Additional charges:

  • Post Processing: (general sharpening, colour balance, exposure); One hour on a half day shoot or 2 hours on a full day. – Will exclude significant manipulation and artefact removal/retouching. Manipulation and retouching are costed on an image per image basis and undertaken after a discussion with the client.

  • Depending on the client specifications and intended usage of the resultant images, an image license may also factor into the overall costing. We look at, on a per job basis.
