Getting it right the first time – How to ask for a photography quote

“What are your prices for a photography session?” you ask. Well, it’s not quite as simple as offering a flat hourly rate. Let us guide you in providing all the necessary information to get an accurate quotation.

Where will the photo session take place? We need to know whether to add travelling and accommodation fees and if the photo session is going to take place outside of Pretoria, we need to keep travel time and time spent out of the office in mind.

When will the shoot take place? We need to check our availability and possibly pencil book a date for your project.

How many hours of photography time will you need? It depends on what you have in mind, and what you would like to achieve with the shoot. The amount of hours booked does depend on the nature of the shoot, how many people are involved etc. If you are hesitant, let us help you determine the amount of time required for your photo session

Do you need any special editing? For example, with portrait photography, we do get requests to soften skin and do finer, more extensive editing to make the person look flawless. With product photography we get asked more often than not to remove the background, or change the colour of the background, and this can take a lot of editing time. We do need to know what exactly you need before we can give you accurate pricing

For portraits and product photography, would you like us to bring any special equipment? We have a mobile studio with studio lights and a variety of backdrops, so if required, we can set up at your office for maximum convenience to you and your staff members being photographed.
