An estimate can be given as to the number of artworks or images which may be photographed in a given time frame. As there are so many variables in each project, such as the sizes and accessibility of objects, and the location or space required for photography, numbers can vary considerably between different projects.

Studio hire
When possible, photography can take place at your own studio; however, if there is not enough space for the portable studio set-up, it may be necessary to hire a local studio. Any studio hire will be charged at cost price, in addition to the standard photography fees. The possibility of working in your own studio depends on the size and shape of the available space, and the size and accessibility of your artworks.

Post-production work
Additional rates are incurred for post-production work in some circumstances. The standard fee includes basic colour correction and cropping of images. Detailed Photoshop work is subject to a retouching fee of £25/hour. This includes things like cutting around edges or removing objects from backgrounds, and removing blemishes.
Retouching fee (per hour): £25

Delivery fees
Images can be delivered via Dropbox/WeTransfer, on DVD-R discs or a USB flash drive.
Images on Dropbox/WeTransfer: free of charge
Images on DVD-R (per disc): £5
Images on USB flash drive: costs vary according to size required
