Product Photography Price Guide

Product shots can vary in difficulty both technically and logistically.

I price my work on either an hourly, half day or full day rate, but to give you a guide on how that could work out in single product terms, have a look at the prices below.




These guides are based on simple product shoots against a white background (including colour correction).


There is a minimum fee of £150 for the initial set-up.

Depending on your product, different angles, variations or close ups of the same product can be offered at a reduced image rate.

Please note that the minimum image rate for any shot is £4.00 and numbers larger than 150 will be priced on application.

Colour balancing and basic digital clean-up is included.

Additional retouching is charged at £49 per hour.

For colour critical work I offer a professional colour matching service – please ask for pricing details.

Clipping paths are charged at £2 per image for basic items, up to £6 for very complex cut-outs.
