*Rate depends on whether an assistant is required, which is sometimes necessary when working between multiple scenes.
$150 per hour* + an hour of post production per hour of shooting.
$1,500 - $3,000 daily rates, depending on the scope of the project.**
*Shooting rate is $175 per hour if an assistant is required. This does not affect post production rate.

If you're interested in having me shoot something but you're not sure what category it falls into, no problem! Just send me a quick message via the contact form, link at the bottom. Every job is slightly different so the rates above are just a guideline anyway.
Why you should hire me for your business:
The rise of social media, coupled with the relative accessibility of digital cameras, has blurred the lines between professional and amateur content. In an attempt to keep up with each other on social media, many businesses are finding themselves in a race to the bottom, where content is free, but low in quality and indistinguishable from everyone else. The answer to this will eventually be, once again, to have better content. I can help.
Who have you worked with?
-My client list is currently small but includes some notable companies/institutions. I was commissioned for the cover of Notre Dame of Maryland University's biannual magazine, Universitas, found here. I've also done several shoots for the Sagamore Pendry hotel in Fells Point, and I'm in the process of working with a local musician as well as on several licensing deals.
