Assurances, Costs and Image Rights

I feel it’s important for my clients to have access to details about the business side of our transaction. This way you have a clear understanding of what to expect, and to grasp the terms under which I work. Included here is an explanation of what you’re getting by hiring a professional photographer, my assurances, and an explanation of image rights.
What Are You Paying For?

Let’s define the worth of my services. What are you paying me for?


You employ my time, expertise and professional tools in the making of:

  • heirloom quality portraiture;
  • beautiful and tangible memories of your wedding and special life events;
  • display/exhibit quality artwork to hang in your home or business, or;
  • professional level images where a high degree of technical competence and quality is required.


Together, we design the mood, style and essence of the images. You then engage me to produce the desired artistic result captured in professional images.


I provide my time and labor, expertise, meticulous attention to detail and artistic technique in finishing your images and bringing them to the zenith of their full visual potential.


Producing high quality images takes skill, intense work and the right tools. Not everone can provide you this service. If anyone could, it would cost nothing.


That said, I have developed a general pricing schedule for most standard photography work. It is intended as a general guide or baseline.


Many photography jobs are not “standard”, however. I invite you to call me to discuss your photography requirements and budget. I will work hard to earn your business.

  • All of my images are copyrighted.
