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.
