Interior Design Small Bath

Heather Sherman is an Interior Designer for ConceptBath in Davenport, IA. She does a lot of designs for small bathrooms and kitchens in modest homes, taking them from old and dated to modern and beautiful. She also needs high-end photography for her portfolio to show off her beautiful designs. That is where I come in. When I did this job, Heather needed only 2 images of this rather small bathroom. I set up my equipment and got all the footage I needed for these 2 images in about 45 minutes. Each image was 2 to 4 images that were blended together in Photoshop to get the desired final look. This was an easy shoot. There was no staging or moving furniture around, just set up at the right height, create a pleasing composition and hit the room with a little flash to crisp up the images.


Architecture Insurance Exterior

As an Architectural Photographer I definitely love shooting the big jobs, but I will take on numerous small jobs for local businesses that only need 5 images or fewer. My normal charge is a day rate along with a post-processing fee for each photo shot. Many times local businesses don’t always need enough images to justify paying a full day rate for just a few images, but still want high-quality images, so I will break down my day rate price to an hourly rate, plus a post-processing fee per photo for businesses within 50 miles of my residence. I really love my job and like to stay busy, but that doesn’t mean you should cheap out on your fees just to get more work. Not everyone can afford to hire a high-end Architectural Photographer, but by allowing them to just pay an hourly rate along with the post-processing fee, allows me to get more work, and allows them to get high-quality work without hiring a cheaper, less qualified photographer.


 This is an Architectural Image of an insurance building I shot in Bettendorf, IA, for a client who only wanted 1 exterior image of the building for the cover of a brochure. This client got a high-quality image and I got a job and still made my worth without sacrificing my rates. I still charged the same rate and same post-processing fee, it was just broke down. If your a local business in the Quad-Cities or within a 50 mile radius of the Quad-Cities, and in need of just a few images and don’t want to pay a high Architectural Photography  day rate, but still want those high-quality images, contact Gary Harris Images and get a quote for your next photo project. Gary will break down your job to an hourly rate, plus the post-processing fee per image.

SonyA7riv

As an Architectural Photographer it is imperative that you not only have a high-end camera, but you also need high resolution. I am shooting high-end jobs for Architects and Interior Designers, Hotel & Resort Owners & Commercial Business Advertisement. They are using the images for their portfolios, for the Architectural Award submissions and to advertise their Business or Resort and they not only want high resolution images, but that’s what they are paying for. There are many Architectural Photographers out there using Medium Format Cameras, because of the high resolution and the detail that these cameras provide. These cameras also come with a very high price tag as well. Most Architectural Photographers are using Full Frame Cameras, like the Sony A7riii 42 Mega Pixel, Canon 5D Mark iv 30 Mega Pixel or the Nikon D850 47 Mega Pixel. Sony has now released the Sony A7riv 61 Mega Pixel with the new Exmor R CMOS sensor, which has incomparable high resolution. This camera does have a hefty price tag $3499, but still a lower price tag from the Medium Format Cameras, and Sony will boast that this new sensor at 61 Mega Pixels will provide higher resolution than some of the Medium Format Cameras. This has become Gary Harris Images camera of choice over the Sony A7riii. I absolutely love this camera and the resolution and detail is stunning. I not only use this camera for Architectural Photography, I’m also using for my Landscapes and Macro Flowers & Plant Photography. By using this camera for my Fine Art Products, it allows me to print large with amazing detail. If you’re looking to upgrade your camera to a higher resolution, you should take a look at the Sony A7riv.
