Commercial Rates

I offer fashion/lifestyle and product photography for products such as clothing or accessories. My fashion/lifestyle rates are based on session and number of images required, while product photography is based solely on number of images required. A license would be required for commercial use of the images and its cost would depend on the type of usage (see below for more details).


Product Photography

Product photography typically showcases a product without a model. This can be useful for an e-commerce website, catalogue, etc. My rates are tiered and based on the number of final images desired. I can shoot a variety of images to show different angles of the product or highlight specific details. You would be responsible for arranging to get the products to and from me. Please indicate the desired angles and background needed for the images.

A license would be required for commercial use of the images and its cost would depend on the type of usage (see below for more details).

Commercial Use License

Commercial use licenses are for images used for any kind of commercial activity, from promoting something on a website to labels selling a product or service.

To keep things simple, I offer a general commercial use license as a one-time fee that covers all final photos from a specific shoot. The cost of the license is based on the domains of usage. One benefit of my pricing structure is that they are for worldwide distribution by default. As well, another major benefit is that these licenses are perpetual. That is, they do not expire and hence there are no renewal or further licensing fees. Finally, any volume within a domain is allowed. For example, once you have the brochures license, you can print 500 brochures or 50,000 and the price remains the same.

Note that there is an exception for advertising, resale, or billboards usage. Please see below.

Pricing

  • Each domain is $75
  • For example, if you pick two domains (website and social media), then it would be $150
  • Three domains of use (brochures, posters, magazines) would be $225

Here are the available options:

  • Websites
  • Social Media
  • Emails and Newsletters
  • Brochures
  • Posters
  • Magazines
  • Catalogues
  • Books

These licenses are:

  • For worldwide distribution
  • For both digital and print reproductions
  • Non-exclusive (exclusive licenses are available as well, please inquire)
  • Not for use by third parties
  • Given a perpetual license (no end date, meaning no renewal fees)

Special Case: Advertising, Resale, Billboards, or Other Use

  • Licenses for advertising, resale, billboards or other use not described above varies based on usage volume and duration of the campaign. Please inquire with details for a quote.
