The Hero Shot
A Hero Shot is a high-end image suitable for advertising in print or online. We produce these through a careful analysis of the product in light of the vision you have for the result. Producing one image requires at least a full day of photography and post-processing, so pricing is calculated on our commercial scale for production time, plus licensing fees derived from the intended scope and duration of your usage. Please inquire for further details or an estimate.

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.
Product photography done on location also incurs extra set-up fees as well as travel.
•The minimum order for any product photography job is $200.
Animations show your product rotating 180º or 360º in 5º or 10º or smaller increments against a white background and output as interactive web products in several possible formats. 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.
Pricing starts at $200 for a single product animation. Additional animations in an order are charged at significantly less!
This pricing pertains to animations of small products, up to roughly 20” on any axis and 50 pounds. 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.

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 retain permission to use them.
We do, however, retain copyright ownership of all images so that we can use them for our own marketing.
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.
We would have to evaluate each request and provide an estimate of the additional cost.
