Commercial Photography

Are you curious about our event and commercial photography rates? Our rates will vary depending upon your specific needs. All our clients have unique requirements and therefore require individual tailored quotations.

In most cases we provide a PDF quote after hearing about our clients’ specific brief, however as a very rough guide below is some typical guide prices for our events and 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 £145 – subsequent hours charged at £45

HALF DAY rate (up to 4 Hours) : from £280

FULL DAY rate (up to 8 Hours) : from £460

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

These rates include our photographer attending the event and all the images captured at the event which are then delivered via a secure download link as low res and high res jpgs. 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); generally 1 hour on a half day shoot or 2 hours on a full day. – this excludes major manipulation and artefact removal/retouching. Manipulation and retouching is costed on an image per image basis and is only 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. This is looked at on a per job basis.
  • Large projects usually require an assistant. Assistants allow us to complete your work more effectively and cover most of the lighting breakdown and moving in between sets.
  • Traveling expenses depend upon the location of the shoot. 45 pence per mile is our usual charge for jobs further than a 10mile round trip from Reading Berkshire.
  • 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.
