I get a lot of Facebook messages and emails with the question “how much does a shoot cost?” Well that depends on what you want to achieve, but if you’re doing your first shoot or your tenth shoot; I always suggest my base “Hour of Power shoot”.
As the name suggests it’s an hour of shoot time on either a white or black or both backgrounds. You can go through an many outfit changes as you like throughout the one hour. The price is $595 including GST. The shoot includes professional hair and makeup also.
For people who want good quality shots that they can print or send into magazines (most designers would prefer a one colour background to design with) it’s the best way to go.
That’s great what do I get for my hard earned $ you ask?
I’ve been in the industry for over 15 years and have over 80 national and international magazine covers and shot a couple of thousand people of all shapes and sizes, so I can help you with your posing and designing a shoot so we can make the best out of the session. I have playback monitors to instantly look back on each shot so we can improve each pose to make it the best it can be.
I use top of the line professional Canon cameras and lenses, not the hobby level gear.
When I shoot I’m always thinking about how this shot will look in a magazine or on social media, since working for and now owning my own magazine I know what an editor or designer would prefer to have.
So for one hour (usually goes longer) you get 15+ years of experience, a professional magazine studio, props and as much action as we can jam in on the 2 backgrounds. Once the shoot is finished you’ll have the proofs within 48 hours and you can pick 1 image to be fully retouched (magazine quality).
Hope this helps anyone who is looking for or thinking about getting some shots done whether it be for a magazine or just for your self to show off all your hard work.
Hope to see you in the studio!
