Transportation, meals and other expenses will be itemized in the contract and paid by the client. The photographer will arrive sufficiently earlier than the contracted start time to ensure a successful event, and leaves at the contracted end time.

Finished photographs will be available for digital download within two weeks after the event. All copyrights and ownership of the photographs remain with the photographer. Contract terms will include a license fee for the negotiated usage rights granted under the terms of the contract.


Licensing

Right to Use license fees for photographs are separate from the session fee unless explicitly included in a package. License fees are determined by the rights granted including the placement, size, area and mediums of distribution, and duration of the license. All usage licenses are rights-managed.

No royalty free licensing, and no work made for hire contracts. The photographer retains all copyrights and authorship to the photographs. Digital copies of licensed images will be provided only after receipt of a signed license agreement and full payment from the client.


Digitals and Prints

Digital Copies: Non-commercial packages may include digital copies. For packages that do not include digital copies clients may purchase digital copies of up to 20 selected images from their session for $200. Digital copies are for personal use only. Digital copies may not be used for any commercial purpose (ie. brochures, business cards, business websites, business profiles, branding, etc). Commercial use requires a separate written license agreement with explicit terms and duration of use rights. See the Licensing section above.

Photographic Prints: Prints are purchased separately from the session fee and prices are based on the table below. Full payment is required at the time the order is placed.

Most of the images in my portfolio may be purchased as professional photographic prints in a choice of sizes. I make all the prints myself using a professional photographic printer, archival quality inks, and professional photographic paper. I guarantee that the print you receive will last for decades without fading when properly stored or displayed under museum UV protective glass out of direct sunlight.

Photographic print prices are based on a sliding scale. This provides you with a better price per print when you purchase individual images in larger quantities of the same size. Quantity discount prices apply only to printing multiple copies of the same image at the same size. Separate images at the same size, and different sizes of the same image, do not qualify for volume discount pricing. Please understand that each different size or image requires the same level of added effort, therefore I must charge separately for each.

Paper Size Image Size Price (Each)
8 x 10 sheet of 9 wallets 3.25 x 2.5 in. $ 25
4 x 6 4 x 6 in. (borderless) $ 5
5 x 7 4 x 6 in. (1/2" border) $ 7
5 x 7 5 x 7 in. (borderless) $ 10
8 x 10 5 x 7 in. (1.5" border) $ 15
8 x 10 8 x 10 in. (borderless) $ 20
11 x 14 8 x 11 (1.5" border) $ 30
11 x 14 11 x 14 in. (borderless) $ 50
13 x 19 12 x 18 in. (1/2" border) $ 80
16 x 20 16 x 20 in. (borderless) $ 150
16 x 24 16 x 24 in. (borderless) $ 250

Note that image and paper sizes are given in inches. Where the paper size is larger than the image size, the image will be centered on the paper and surrounded by a white border. Where the paper and image sizes match, this reflects a borderless print where the image covers the entire face of the paper and there is no border.

If you would like to purchase fine art prints, please contact me directly to place your order and make payment arrangements.
