This pricing includes a single lighting and studio setup per order; orders requesting multiple setups will be charged for the extra shooting time required. Image extractions, product groupings, reflective surfaces, and low-contrast (such as white- on-white) products incur additional fees. Per-image pricing is based on how many images are commissioned in a single order. More deeply discounted pricing is available on orders of more than 500 product images. Please inquire.

Please inquire also for pricing on Product Videos.

•The minimum order for any product photography job is $200.

Product Animations

Animations show your product rotating 180º or 360º in 5º or 10º increments against a white background. Pricing is based on the number of images built into the animation. Extractions (also known as transparency masking) incur extra charges based on how many images are involved in the animation.

  • 180º Rotation
    10º increments

    $175

    per animation

  • 180º Rotation
    5º increments

    $300

    per animation

  • 360º Rotation
    10º increments

    $300

    per animation

  • 360º Rotation
    5º increments

    $400

    per animation

This pricing pertains to animations of small products, up to roughly 5” x 5” x 5” in size. For quotes on larger objects, particularly objects too large to be photographed on a 20-inch turntable, please inquire. Generally, large products that require that the objects remain stationary and imaging be done by moving the camera around it are quoted as commercial shoots, which are estimated based on travel, time required for the shoot and processing, and image licensing.

As with product stills, orders involving reflective surfaces, image extractions, white-on-white imaging, products larger than standard size, and product groupings will incur extra charges.

What’s Included


High resolution 300 dpi files for print and web use
We deliver all our images as high resolution 300 dpi jpeg files, ready for use in print or on the web.

All product stills are made at a minimum of 12 megapixels. Optionally, we are able to deliver images at up to 18 megapixels or higher for particular needs such as large prints.
Photo editing to remove dust and minor scratches or marks
We retouch all images carefully before delivering them. This processing involves color correction, exposure adjustments, and other basic modifications to ensure excellent tone and vibrancy. We also remove noticeable lint, dust, and scratches that may have found their way into the image.
White background with subtle shadow or reflection
Product stills and animations are made against either a non-reflective or a reflective background so that images include either a soft shadow or a subtle reflection. All you need to do is tell us your preference.
Product cleaning, steaming, & other minor preparation
Prior to photographing your products, we will dust and clean them, using compressed air, microfiber cloths, and special lint-lifting brushes. We steam clothing and fabrics to remove wrinkles, and wear gloves to prevent smudges and fingerprints. We want your products to look their best!
Immediate online delivery and image storage
We upload proof images for you to review and approve prior to delivery and final invoicing. When you approve the finished images, we will upload the final, high-resolution versions according to your sizing specifications and send you a link in a DropBox to download them. We will leave your images in that secure location for up to one year; and we will place another copy of your jpeg files in another online album from which you can download them at any time in the future. Upon request, we will secure that album and send you a password enabling only you to access it.
Unlimited license for print and web use
It is common in the marketing and advertising world of photography to sell limited licenses for images that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per image. These licenses restrict where and for how long images can be used before you must renew your license These fees add up quickly and provide an ongoing hassle that we would like to protect you from.

For that reason, we provide you with a perpetual, unlimited license to use the images you purchase! No returning to us to pay additional fees to obtain permission to use them.

We do, however, retain copyright ownership of all images so that we can use them for our own marketing.
Fast and friendly service!
We love what we do, and we love our clients! We will do everything we can to communicate honestly, charge fairly, and deliver excellent images!

What’s Extra


Group arrangements
Our standard pricing above applies to individual items. If you need to group products in a photo, that’s just fine. Let us know what you have in mind, and we will give you an estimate based on the complexity of the shot. Larger group photos require additional time setting up editing.
Oversized items
We can easily photograph products up to 24 inches on the longest side; most items larger than this require more challenging lighting and set ups. This is especially true when we must bring our studio to the item. For example, photographing a car, a get, or a dining room set involve very different methods.

We would have to evaluate each request and provide an estimate of the additional cost.
Shiny or metallic surfaces
Very shiny items require exacting set ups to control reflections and manage the exposure. Such items will be estimated prior to imaging based on the complexity of the job required.
Products requiring sharp focus from front to back
Jewelry and other items must be photographed in sharp focus from front to back, and with careful attention to small details, highlights, and contrast. To obtain sharp photos in this case requires that we make a series of exposures in which the focus shifts through the full depth of the object; and then all the exposures are merged into a single, sharp images. We would need to provide a custom estimate when your goals require this.
Black backgrounds
Do you need an elegant image on a flat or reflective black background? This can be done for just $10 extra.
Illuminated lights and displays
We will provide you with an estimate of the cost to photograph products that include LED lights, incandescent or neon lighting, or candle light. These require long exposures, multiple exposures, and extra processing time to deliver an excellent finished image.
Customized services
We have the equipment and ability to provide custom photography for commercial and architectural clients. Please contact us so that we can provide you with an estimate on your project!
