Important Notice

I have now relocated to Dublin, Ireland, and I am therefore no longer able to provide photography services in New Zealand. This website has not yet been updated to reflect this change.

Many thanks to all my clients in New Zealand over the past 4 years, and I apologise for any inconvenience caused!

Pretty flash photography, at pretty flash prices!

Standard pricing

My standard all-inclusive fee is $200 per hour I spend at the event, plus $150 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.

Student discount

If you’re a student* you qualify for my student discount of 30% off my standard hourly rate (making it $140 per hour plus the $150 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
Standard rate $250 $350 $450 $550 $750 $950
Student rate $220 $290 $360 $430 $500 $570

These prices include the $150 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.

Travel costs

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!
