My standard fees are described below. I believe they represent the value that I add to the photographic process. After spending an hour shooting a sporting event, I usually have between 500 and 1000 images in the camera. It can take over an hour to download and inspect each of the images and select those that I believe will end up making good quality photographs. Once the images have been selected, it takes many more hours to process these images into high-quality photographs. My fees and charges represent a balance between the value of my time and my desire to provide quality photographs at reasonable prices.
This is my charge to come and take pictures of your team's event. The fee depends on the size of the team and is $10.00 per player on the team roster. So, for example, if the team has 9 players on the roster, the shooting fee would be $90.00. This fee structure (a simple dollar amount multiplied by the number of players on the team) is intended to make it simple to distribute the cost among the players.
The "small download" is a 1-megapixel JPEG image that should be suitable for posting to Facebook, downloading to a cellphone, etc.
The "high resolution download" is the largest size JPEG image available for a particular photograph. The actual size of the download will vary, depending on how the images was processed after being downloaded from the camera. Full size downloads are almost always larger than 2 megapixels, and are usually 10 megapixels or more. High resolution downloads should be suitable for creating medium and large format prints. Discounts of up to 50% are available for packages of five or more downloads.
A range of additional photographic products are available for purchase at competitive prices. These products include prints of various sizes, key chains, refrigerator magnets, cups, t-shirts, greeting cards, and other gift items. My favorite items include the sports-related items: magazine covers, trading cards, sporting event tickets, and memory mates. You can even purchase a larger-than-life wall cling of your favorite player.
For $14.50 per player I will come to one of your practices and take a team photo as well as individual player photos. This price includes a framed "Memory Mate" that includes the team photo and the individual player photo in a single 8x10" print. Please contact me for additional information.
Although I prefer to charge a low up-front fee so that you can decide whether you like a particular photograph before purchasing it, I do offer unlimited-download pricing. Please use the Contact link at the top of the page for details.
The pricing structure above assumes that I'm photographing a youth sporting event, which is my specialty. I can certainly do other events and I'm more than happy to work with you to come up with fair and equitable pricing for those events. Please use the Contact link at the top of the page and let me know what you'd like.
Of course, I reserve the right to change my fees and pricing at any time.
