Let’s break things down.

As with every product and service my studio offers, my Business Portraits Pricing is simple and straightforward. I want you to walk out of the studio with a great set of portraits that will get you the attention you want. I also want you to have a strategy for your online presences and marketing plan for the brand called You.

Regardless of the length of time you spend in front of the camera, your images will be completely processed. That means I will fix minor wrinkles in clothes, remove fly-away hair, make sure your eyes sparkle and even out complexion. If there are specific requests for your specific selections, teeth whitening for example, no problem and no fee. More advanced touch ups, such as scar or blemish removal, is also possible and may incur an additional fee.

Within the 30 minute session we will be able to create a set of proofs equaling 10 or so photos. 30 minutes moves by rather quickly. That said, the length of this session limits us to the studio with one background and modest wardrobe changes. Lighting scenarios can be changed quickly, so you will have variation within the proof set.

Specifically included in the this 30 minute session: 

  • 30 Minutes in Studio
  • One Background
  • Wardrobe changes must be modest – such as tie change, jacket and no jacket
  • Online Proofing
  • 10 or so proofs
  • 3 Digital Downloads of your choosing – 8×10 high resolution JPEG and Web Ready JPEG
  • Additional Images may be purchased at $35 each
  • $125 Session fee

Business Portraits session based on my hourly rate are most common. This affords us plenty of time for wardrobe and background changes. We can be very creative with lighting scenarios and dig deeper in to poses. Location shoots are now an option. All these elements ensure we convey your Brand the way you want it conveyed.

Specifically included in the the hourly rate:

  • One hour in studio or on location*
  • Multiple backgrounds or location settings
  • Unlimited wardrobe changes
  • Online Proofing
  • 30+ proofs
  • 10 Digital Downloads of your choosing – 8×10 high resolution JPEG and Web Ready JPEG
  • Additonal images may be purchased for $35 each
  • $215

Which Business Portraits Session is right for you?

Let’s start with the easy ones. If you are looking for portraits for more than one person, we are looking at an hourly rate. How many hours really depends on all the variables mentioned above. I have completed corporate shoots for 20 individuals in 2 1/2 hours and have spent 2 days doing a corporate shoot for 60 people. It is best if we start corresponding about your specific needs and wants. Please Contact Me and let’s set up an initial consultation, which is free of charge, and we can create and outline from which I will write up a no obligation proposal.

For individuals, needs and wants play the biggest role in determining how long of a shoot we need. If you are part of a large company and simply need a single portrait for perhaps LinkedIn or corporate blog, then we can easily get things done in a 30 minute session. If the company is yours, you are at the forefront, you are the Brand, then we should look at all the places you plan on using your portraits.

A visually consistent image throughout your brand is critically important. Remember your Business Portraits can and should be used differently on various sites. Your blog and LinkedIn profile may have use a more formal portrait. Your Facebook Business Page another, and even still another on your Facebook Personal profile. Altogether, you will be creating a consistent look through your Brand. Regardless of how people find you, you will look professional.
