Additional Hour Creative Rate
1 hour
$200
While you may want to gawk at hourly rates some photographers charge what you don’t see is after the lens cap is put back on the camera, the hours of post-production processing that must be done to create the final image. A lot of work goes into the creative process to produce a product that will be delivered to the clients requirements and expectations. When you start breaking the numbers down, the hourly rate for a project is significantly less and starts looking less glamorous than the quoted total for a project. For example, we may shoot a two-hour event for $500 and capture 400-500 images, but when we get back to behind the computer we typically spend an average of four hours to process the images, culling through the keepers and correcting the ones that make the cut. That works out to an average of $83 per hour of work. It still sounds like a lot when compared to the minimum wage but quickly diminishes when fixed costs are deducted, such as mortgage, leases, equipment and repairs, various insurances, taxes, retirement savings, etc.

“So what’s the deal with licensing?”

When a photographer creates an image it is the intellectual property of the creator.  As such, when a photographer is hired to do a job the photographer owns the rights to the image even if it is created for and paid by another party.  Licensing is vehicle in which the photographer defines constraints and grants the party usage of an image for a specific set of terms.  These terms of use range from media permissions, such as geographic distribution (where in the world it is permitted to be displayed) and format (how the image is distributed: print, web, download, etc); size, which defines the size that images can be displayed; duration, how long the license is valid for; and exclusiveness, the ability of the photographer and client to reuse the images for reproduction.  Typically, licenses are written on a per-image basis to last one year and to be non-exclusive, which allows the photographer to reuse the image for other purposes, such as self-promotion, redisplay, to enter contests, etc.  Licensing fees are associated with image licensing and are usually charged on a per-image basis, although image licensing packs can be negotiated to cover all images created for a project and may be more beneficial to the client. Sole rights of the images can be transferred from the photographer to the client, known as a buyout, but this comes at a significant cost. All of the terms of the licensing can and should be discussed and negotiated.

All photography services are subject to 6% Virginia Sales Tax.

The numbers specified are not true limits, since you can create as many pages as you would like on your own. *All site content is the responsibility of the site owner, and should be provided to us prior to the Design Phase.
Content Management System
We build our websites on the industry leading WordPress Content Management System (CMS). From a development perspective, we use WordPress as our default CMS due to the overwhelming support community, and the ease of integration for extensive website functionality. From a customer perspective, WordPress provides the most user friendly interface out-of-the-box. This translates to quick and painless website content updates without needing to know programming or scripting languages like HTML, CSS or JavaScript. If you are interested in maintaining and updating your own website, this is the way to go! While our default CMS selection is WordPress, we typically get requests to develop or maintain sites hosted using other CMSs such as Joomla and Drupal. If you have a specific preference, please let us know so we can work with you to meet your needs.

Ever want to start a blog? What about News & Events page to promote what you or your business have been doing recently? Well, with the WordPress CMS, your blog is directly integrated into your website! Now you can advertise new services, products, and press releases using your WordPress blog as your primary internet marketing tool, or simply offer up random thoughts with your new virtual soapbox. You can even use your blog as the central control point for your Social Media updates!
