About Hiring a Corporate Photographer
Securing eye popping photographs for your annual report, ad campaign, website or tradeshow display doesn't have to be a mammoth task. The first step in this process is to find a photographer who creates images at a level of quality and creativity that you envision. Once you have found that company, the next step is to communicate your needs for the shoot and start a dialogue about location, budget, time frame and usage. This conversation will help the photographer put together an estimate that is as detailed as possible. Once you receive this estimate, continue to work with the photographer until an agreement is met.
P2 Photography works hard to make this process as easy as possible. This is their job, and they take it seriously. A large part of the business of being a corporate photographer is knowing what questions to ask and being able to clearly explain perceived challenges and how they will be met.
A Bit About Pricing
Commercial photographers generally charge a 'creative fee' for services rendered. It helps to get an idea of what the creative fee is when beginning discussions about a project, but it is also important to remember that this is only one part of the overall cost of an assignment. Creative fees do not include expenses or the licensing of usage rights, and in some cases may not involve post-productions fees. It is important to ask the photographer about other expenses, as each photographer bills their time differently. These expenses and usage fees will be broken down for you in the estimate or bid as well.
If you ask for and receive an estimate, this is usually valid for 30-45 days, but the length can depend on the photographer. An estimate does not involve a fixed price, so job parameter and actually job costs may change. If a bid is requested and received, once it is accepted the job parameters and the price can not change. Any change in the scope of the assignment may also be reflected by a change in price.
