At Crafting Exposure, my goal is to help you show off your artwork and craftsmanship. The below photography services and rates have been tailored to the needs of creative professionals like yourself. I know every project is custom, so I will work with you to determine the most appropriate total cost for your photoshoot. My fee will vary by the duration of the shoot, location, type of shots and level of post production required. We will agree on a price prior to the shoot so we are aligned on budget. You can rest assured that there will be no surprises! Any revisions to the cost must be agreed upon based on adjustments to the scope of our project.
Your finished image files will be included in the cost of each shoot, and your are welcome to use these online and in marketing materials. In most cases, you will retain full right to publish and reproduce the images as needed. We can discuss more nuanced situations as they arise. Please have an idea of how these images will be used at the time of shooting so we can ensure we get the right angles. I will also be best able to provide the sizes and variations you need with these details. For example, show applications have specific sizing requirements for jury photos while online stores require their own specs for product photography. In terms of payment, I accept Cash, Credit Cards, Checks and Paypal. You will receive an invoice detailing the scope of our project and total amount due for your records. Payment in full is required at or before image files are delivered.
