A studio in the Northeast

Shoot Days:

Food and product however life specialist

Large, based in the Northeast

Large Food/Potable Company

Here is the guess:

The concept for the shoot was straightforward. The agency/client hoped to photograph their new product against a white background with minor props aslope of it. The agency planned to composite the last image on a different groundwork, and they had plans to employ the images for impress ads in magazines, as well as placement on jitney shelters and other out-of-home applications. While the agency requested for the licensing to include all images captured, we’d be photographing 1 product and the usage would incorporate i final image, then I therefore priced the creative/licensing fee to be more in line with their intended use of one image. Based on previous feel with similar projects and clients, I knew that creative/licensing fees for this blazon of usage and straightforward nature of the project typically fell between $10,000 to $xv,000, and I ended up landing roughly in the middle at $13,000.

The photographer preferred to manage a workstation for client review rather than hiring a digital tech, and nosotros included two assistants to assist manage grip and lighting throughout the twenty-four hour period.

While the concept was straightforward, there would still be a decent corporeality of pre-product work to coordinate crew, styling, scheduling and catering, and the agency specifically asked for a producer to be on site to manage the twenty-four hours and make sure everything stayed on rail.

Food/Prop Styling:
I included i prep twenty-four hours and i shoot day for a nutrient/prop stylist, as well equally one shoot day for their assistant. While I’d typically include an additional day for a stylist to render the unused items, it was not a cost efficient pick given the limited budget needed for the food/props (which included the cost to buy a few versions of the product to be shot, along with a few minor food items). The stylist we wanted to piece of work with charged $1,200/day plus 20% for their agent, and their assistant worked for $300/24-hour interval.

Studio Rental and Equipment:
A studio in this market place could range from $1,500-$three,000 depending on availability, plus equipment charges of an equal amount for lighting, grip, a workstation and a medium format camera rental.  A few specialty studios accuse flat fees and wrap everything upward in one fee, and I felt $4,000 total would cover whatever of these options for studio and equipment depending on infinite availability.

I included $70 per person for a nice breakfast, lunch and craft services throughout the 24-hour interval for up to ten people (half-dozen crew and four agency/client).

Parking, Expendables, Misc.:
I included $100 for general unanticipated expenses throughout the solar day, plus $100 for meals/transportation during our stylist’s shopping day, plus $100 for transportation to/from the shoot for the crew.

Nosotros included $500 to cover a full general liability insurance policy, which the studio would demand proof of, equally would any equipment rental firm we used.

Shoot Processing for Client Review:
This covered the fourth dimension to exercise an initial edit of all the images, dorsum them upward, and provide a gallery for the customer to cull from.

Selects Processed for Reproduction:
While the agency would handle the final compositing, we were warned that the prototype of the product would likely require a substantial amount of work to remove/add certain labels. We therefore included half-dozen hours of retouching (including one round of revisions afterwards the initial processing took place) based on a rate of $150/hr, and and then rounded upwardly to an even $1,000.

The photographer was awarded the project, and the ads are due to roll out in the coming months.
