Because most commercial projects are by nature unique, we are happy to offer custom quotes once we know more about the scope of your specific needs. Our rates are all-inclusive; we know our clients want a bottom-line price without having to worry about extra charges – like travel, setup, editing and licensing fees for individual photos. Our policy is one price covers everything – no surprises or extra costs – you use the photos however you like, for as long as you like.

Below are typical rates that suit many of our clients' needs, which should give you an idea of a particular project's cost. 


Headshots / Lifestyle Business Portraits

Price: $350 for 1 person, $150 per additional individual (on same day) ; $350 for group shot

best for: corporate headshots / business portraits

what's included: travel / setup / 1 fully retouched hi-res file per person

extras: additional retouched photos are $50/ea

We travel all over the Bay Area directly to our clients – to their homes, businesses or other outdoor locations. We shoot in natural environments and we shoot in conference rooms, we shoot in hallways and in parks; we can make magic happen almost anywhere. If you have corporate headshot guidelines, we can adhere to them (just let us know ahead of time). We like to give our portrait clients options, and we always bring our own lighting equipment + personal guidance to make the experience quick, easy and fun. Most people hate having their picture taken, but after working with us they're relieved it was a painless (and even fun) experience!

Hourly Rate: Call for Custom Quote (Rates vary by date/total coverage) (831) 216-6210

best for: corporate event / candid coverage

what's included: travel / setup / all edited hi-res files / full usage rights

extras: none!

For commercial jobs that aren't highly stylized, an hourly rate that includes all edited files is generally the most appropriate pricing structure. This is generally applied to event coverage, mostly candid photography (one of our specialties). We have a two-hour minimum charge and may offer bulk rates for multi-day events.


A-La-Carte (Per File) Rate: $200/ea

best for: architecture / low photo volume needs

what's included: travel / setup / post-production/ full usage rights to purchased files

extras: no files included, no cost up front – only purchase what you love

If you only need a handful of files and want a zero-risk option, you may be eligible for the a-la-carte option where no money is required up front. If we agree to the work, shoot it, and you are unhappy with the results for any reason – you don't pay a dime. The most common type of jobs eligible for this option tend to revolve around architecture and small restaurants needs.
