WHAT DO ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES COST?
Every project is different so costs will vary, but ultimately it comes down to:
base cost + amount of photos purchased
WHAT IS THE BASE COST?
The base cost of $150 covers travel expenses (within the Denver Metro area), time to photograph the project (1-2 hours) and initial editing of the photos. Edited images will be placed in a proof gallery where the client may choose the photos they’d like to purchase. Extra trips to photograph the project are an additional $100. Locations outside the Denver metro area and projects of larger scope will have an additional cost.
WHAT ARE THE COSTS OF PURCHASING PHOTOS?
Single-family residential photos start at $105/image, while commercial and large scale multi-family projects start at $150/image. Discounted rates are available if more than 5 photos are to be purchased. To purchase the copyright of photos the base cost is $900/image. Prices are as folows:
Number of Photos Residential Price/image Commercial Price/image
1-5> Photos $105/image $150/image
6-10 Photos $95/image $140/image
11+ Photos $85/image $130/image
All Photos | Varies by project
Non-exclusive rights for client’s general marketing use, both online and in print. Marketing use includes: company ads, marketing brochures and company website. Also included is image use on third-party social websites such as Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook. If used on third-party social sites, credit must be given to the photographer as “Ed Tabler Photography” with a link to www.edtablerphotography.com where possible. Any other use, by client or others, is explicitly prohibited by the copyright holder, Ed Tabler.
WHAT IF THIRD PARTIES WANT TO USE THE PHOTOS?
Rights are only granted to the client(s) and NOT to any third party. Should third parties want to secure rights they will need to work out terms and fees directly with the copyright holder, Ed Tabler.
CAN THE PHOTOS BE PUBLISHED?
If the photos are to be published in magazines, books and/or blogs, the publisher/writer/editor will need to contact the copyright holder, Ed Tabler, to directly work out terms and secure copyright release.
IS THERE AN OPTION TO PURCHASE THE COPYRIGHT?
In most situations the option to purchase the copyright is available to the client. The cost is at a higher rate than the standard marketing usage due to the fact the photographer won’t be able to make any new revenue from the photos. If this option is chosen the current copyright holder, Ed Tabler, will retain the right to use the images for marketing use but gives up all other rights.
DO YOU USE SUPPLEMENTAL LIGHTING?
I only use the available light inherit in the scene (natural & artificial) and expose for both light/dark areas for post-processing later. During post-processing multiple photos are sometimes merged to ensure the best quality.
WHAT POST-PROCESSING IS DONE?
All images are post-processed using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Adjustments are made for optimal color adjustments, white balance, brightness, contrast, sharpness, and removal of unwanted objects. Also included are crops and adjustments made to assure vertical lines are straight where applicable.
WHAT SIZE ARE THE PHOTOS AND IN WHAT FORMAT?
Full-size land-based images are typically ~7900 pixels × ~5300 pixels (~42 megapixels) in resolution. Drone images are typically ~5400 × 3600 (20 megapixels) in resolution. Both can be supplied in numerous formats (JPEG, TIFF, PNG, etc.) Other sizes can be provided, in addition to the full-size images, provided they are requested prior to the photo shoot date. Low-resolution images (for web use) are supplied upon request.
WHAT IS THE TURN-AROUND TIME FOR THE PHOTOS?
Electronic imagery will usually be available 1-2 weeks after the photo-shoot date.
DO YOU SELL PRINTS?
Prints are available in a variety formats, at additional cost, as described on the Prints page.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT ARE ACCEPTED?
Checks and all major credit cards through Paypal.com
