Do you want me to shoot for you but have never worked with me before?
I decided I will make your life easier by offering “free” photo assignments. Free, until you decide to use the photos. Of course there are certain conditions the assignment has to meet. Let me go over them:
Not every assignment will be considered, I will need to discuss the project details with you and weigh its value for me. I will consider any genre, from fashion to lifestyle, product, automotive etc.
You will need to approve and sign an estimate that would include creative fees, expenses and license fees, like for a usual assignment, but my creative fees and image license fees will need to be paid only if you decide to use the images after the shoot. The license fees will reflect the particular usage and the number of images used, and can be adjusted after the assignment to meet your needs and budget.
Services of the rest of the team, including modeling and styling fees as well as any applicable location and setting expenses will have to be covered by you like in a standard assignment. You are welcome to offer your own creative team.
The bottom line: If after the shoot you are happy with the photographs and decide to use them, you get the same rate as for a standard assignment. If for some reason you are not fully satisfied or your project gets canceled before you start using the photos, you save on a great portion of the fees. I want to make sure that you get what you want before you pay for it.
I hope you’ll find this offer the most reasonable you’ve ever received and I am excited to see how it works out.
