How do you determine pricing?
Our pricing model is based on several factors.
What is a single item product?
A single item is one product that is “one” element. However, if a single item product has multiple pieces or attachments that you request to be included in the same shot, this would be classified as a group shot. Also If you have a product that you request to have a front and back view, for example, this would account for two shots.
How do you define multiple item group shots?
A “small group” is a 2-3 item composition and a “large group” is a 4-6 item composition. For larger group shots beyond 6 elements or items, please inquire. An example of a small group is a toy car, charger and battery all included in the same shot.
What kind of products do you shoot?
We have experience with every type of product. If you can ship it to us, we can shoot it. No matter how complex your product is, we can find a solution.
What rights do i have for usage of my photos?
Our usage is unlimited for you to use for whatever you wish. Our only requirement is that you cannot resell the image(s) to any third party without our written permission. Usage rights are granted when final payment is made.
What are my options for a background?
We offer a simplified solution to the backgrounds or surfaces. The most common background is white with natural shadows. We also can shoot on white with a drop shadow added in post-production or on a white under lit surface (no shadows).
Can i have a different background other than white?
What other charges do you have?
Some charges that might not be listed at the time of the quote would be:
What equipment do you use?
We utilize the latest in digital pro sensors from 22-40 mp, professional lighting equipment and a streamlined post production workflow. Being on the forefront of photo technology combined with our years of experience, we are committed to providing our clients with tomorrow’s solutions today.
What do you mean by color optimized?
All of our workstations are custom calibrated and use industry standard color profiles. In addition, we custom color balance all of our shots on set to ensure constancy across all of your images. Your final files are delivered with white and black points adjusted and ready for use.
What is the extent of minor retouching?
We include up to 10 min of retouching as part of our workflow. This involves removing any imperfections, spots or making minor tweaks to your image. If your product requires major retouching due to sample issues or being a prototype, we bill on an hourly fee.
What resolution are my photos?
We shoot at high resolution but generally deliver at file sizes optimized for web use. We output at standard sizes of 1,280px and 1,920px on the long side. These file sizes ensure that your products look sharp and most importantly load in a quick manner for your clients. Custom sizes and aspect ratios (ex. 1×1, 2×3 or any other) are available. Just let us know before we shoot.
Can i have a custom surface or props added in my photos?
Yes, but we generally only offer this for custom shoots. Just let us know the extent of what you would like, and we will gladly provide a quote.
What is your turnaround time?
Our turnaround time is usually 5-7 working days. This however can fluctuate depending on the quantities you have. If you have only a few items to photograph, we can shorten this time considerably. We can also expedite your order with RUSH charges if needed. Just let us know at the time you request a quote.
How do i ship my products to you?
You may use any of the major carriers FedEx, UPS, DHL or other private courier. We recommend that you pack your items carefully and also insure your parcel. Note: when selecting your items for photography, please be conscious of any small details like missing or broken parts, unclean samples, and crooked or mis-printed labels. We shoot a lot of samples and prototypes so we can also take care of most glitches in post-production.
Where do i ship my product?
We have multiple shooting locations. After we determine the size and quantity of your product(s), we assign the studio that best suits your project and production schedule. The shipping address will be forwarded at the time of acceptance of our quote.
What is a shoot list?
A shoot list is a concise list of the products that you wish to have us photograph. It can be as simple as a description of what items are to be shot single or to be grouped. Key elements are:
Please have an item # on each product so that we can correlate with your shoot list. We can also name your files with your item # so there is consistency for e-commerce and tracking.
Can i specify how my products are arranged?
Absolutely. You may include a description, drawing, or reference other examples. Just include any details that you require. We also rely on our years of experience to arrange items artistically within your parameters.
How do i preview my images?
When your job is completed, we will email a sample watermarked file(s).
Why are these images watermarked?
When final payment is made, the larger and color optimized files without a watermark will be available for download.
What file size(s) are my images?
We output images in two file sizes: 1,280 and 1,920 px on the long side. But if you require custom sizes, we can accommodate that too.
What format are my final images?
Your files are delivered as RGB jpgs as we have determined that most clients want web ready images. But, we can deliver in almost any file format (jpg. psd, png, tif). If you are unsure as to what file format you need, please ask us or consult your web designer.
Quite simply, we do not sell or share your information to anyone. We value you as a client and respect your privacy as much as we do ours. In addition, if you have a product that is sensitive in nature, we are happy to sign an NDA, as we have done for several clients. Also, if you do not want to have your product displayed on our website, we will respect your wishes.
What happens when i request a quote?
Once we have your requisition, we provide a time of 24 hours to respond to your queries, not just because we lack in it, but to provide you with the best quotes we know you’re valuable to us.
