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.

Additional retouching is charged at £49 per hour.
For colour critical work I offer a professional colour matching service – please ask for pricing details.
