A – Commissioned Photography.
My work is predominantly project based. Pricing depends on the size and type of the project.
B – Non commissioned images.
These are shot on a related shoot or on spec. The client has no obligation to purchase.
Cost for each image depends on agreed usage.
These images are supplied at a resolution that is suitable for the agreed usage.
They are licensed to the buyer with the following conditions.
The licence to use the image is as outlined in the Tax Invoice.
The licence is non-exclusive.
The image cannot be given away, used by or sold to a third party.
Images are delivered on-line as RGB J-Pegs.
If delivery is on a CD, a $25 + postage and handling fee will be charged.

Digital file RGB proofs
Web gallery set up fee $50 each.
Web gallery upload $30 each. High res upload $10 per 100 meg
D – License rollovers.
License rollovers are based on the origonal professional fee. They do not take into consideration any of the extra expenses associated with the origonal job, such as travel, assistants images prep etc. My rollover fee structure is best explained using an simple example – a job shot for a Property developer in Adelaide.
The origonal professional fee for the job on a 2 year license is $1,000 + expenses.
At the end of the license I will charge anywhere between 20% to 100 % of the origonal fee for a further 2 years’ usage. This will depend on the required extra usage. However, at the time of commissioning, if the developer decides he want a 4 year license, I would give a discount and charge a 50% loading on the originally quoted professional fee for the same extra useage.
All these rates are negotiable depending on project size, territory (eg local, national or international) and the usage of the images. .
