Our commercial,/advertising/assignment pricing has been developed based on a variety of factors. Each project is different and requires different pre-production, scouting, shooting and post-production processes. Please fill out our handy Quote Form for an estimate specific to your needs. We charge a "creative fee" for the photo shoot itself as well as applicable pre/post-production hours, travel time and usage rights fees. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
Note: The Quote Form you send us should be as detailed as possible. It should include the estimated number of images and details about where those images will be used (i.e. books, magazines, advertising, brochures, web site etc.). We will contact you if there's anything we need to specify.
2. Estimate, Agreement & Deposit
After you fill out the form, we'll send you an estimate for the project along with our agreement. Prior to scheduling your photo-session on our shooting calendar, we require a 50% deposit of the estimated fees. The balance is due upon completion of the work. When we receive a signed estimate with the agreement and deposit, we will schedule your photo session.
After the shoot (usually the next day), we'll prepare a proofing gallery for the images. Your proofs are uploaded to our web-server and the web address (URL) is e-mailed to you. Your proofs stay on the server for 30 days (longer by agreement) to give you time to choose. The gallery is cross-platform compatible (including smart-phones!) Proofs are lo-res batch converted jpeg files for selection only and should not be considered representional of final quality.
Once you have selected the images and sent us the ID of your selections, we will create the hi-res image files. These are each given individual attention and are cropped, color-balanced, cleaned, and retouched by hand.
Delivery of TIFF and/or JPEG files is typically made via email (or FTP, if requested.) CD/DVD delivery of images by overnight mail is available for $30, upon request.
Rip Williams Photography, LLC offers a "100% Satisfaction Guarantee" policy, ensuring that your images will be of the correct exposure, resolution, focus and subject matter required for your business. If these criteria are not met, we’ll re-shoot for free. Click here for details.
