My standard all-inclusive fee is $99 per hour I spend at the event, plus $30 per job (I’ve run the numbers for you – scroll down for a table of fees for different job durations). My minimum charge for event photography is generally for one hour, but after that you can decide exactly how long I stay and how much you pay – no nasty surprises.
If you’re a student* you qualify for my student discount of 30% off my standard hourly rate (making it $69 per hour plus the $30 job fee) – perfect for your 21st party, graduation or other student celebration! You won't find a cheaper professional photographer in town.
*Please note that the discount applies only to individual students and not to student groups or organisations, sorry! The discount applies at my absolute discretion. Please contact me if you want to know whether it will apply to you!
Table of fees:
|30 mins*||1 hour||1.5 hours||2 hours||3 hours||4 hours|
These prices include the $30 job fee and are rounded to the nearest $1. GST does not apply to my fees. *A mimimum of one hour may apply.
Other forms of photography
My prices are set with event and graduation photography in mind, and are designed to account for the hours I spend processing photos after the event. For other kinds of work a different fee stucture may be more suitable – please get in touch with me!
How long do you need?
Not sure how long you need me for? I generally recommend 1.5–3 hours for a 21st party, 3–4 hours for a ball or cocktail event, and 30 mins–1 hour for graduation photos. Having said that, every job is different and it can be hard to predict in advance how long I’ll be needed. Generally I am happy to stay longer at the time if required!
What you get
You automatically get the right to all the edited photos in full-resoulution JPEG format without a watermark, for your personal use (subject to my terms). These are generally too large to email, but I can provide a link to download them, or they can be mailed to you on a flash drive for a small extra cost. Printing can be arranged at your expense. Unless you request otherwise the photos will always be posted on my Facebook page, and may be used on my website as well.
Fees apply for travel outside my current city. Please get in touch to see if I’m in the right place for you at the moment!
