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.

Product Animations

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.

What’s Included

Free Planning Consultation
The key to delivering great service and excellent products is strong up-front communication. We will speak with you by phone or in person and take careful notes on the particular demands of your project so that your vision becomes ours. We will also provide you with an easy-to-complete questionnaire to get the process started. (You can get that from this page!)
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 to 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 retain permission to use them.

We do, however, retain copyright ownership of all images so that we can use them for our own marketing.
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.
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 jet, 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!
Additional Set Ups or Staging
Our basic pricing assumes that all of your products can be photographed from the same lighting and camera set ups and without complicated staging. We charge for additional setups and staging beyond the basic on an hourly basis. We also try to estimate these costs up front so that there are no surprises.
