s p o t i c u s photography
I offer a variety of professional services, from portraits & headshots to commercial / advertising / social media promotion. Every job is different and costs will vary, but here's a general overview of my rates:
Studio - $200 (1-2hr / 2-3 images)
Environmental Portraits - $255-$500*
*Rate varies with number of images, location, production level, etc. Includes in-person planning session ahead of the shoot.
Studio - $155 (30min-1hr / 1-2 images)
On location - $185 (30min-1hr / 1-2 images)
Corporate - $225 (singe image per person + usage)
My goal is to create high quality, customized images for your business. Hourly rates make less sense these days as production levels can vary widely. Time is not an accurate measure of quality; quality is an accurate measure of quality.
As such, I offer per-image rates with flexible licensing options. That way you'll know, up front, exactly what your budget looks like.
Day rates may apply for larger projects. Line items for travel, equipment rental, additional personnel, etc., may apply.
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 several local musicians as well as licensing deals.
