RATES FOR SOCIAL MEDIA & SEO SERVICES

Pricing social media and SEO projects require some discussion before I can provide a quote for services. With that said, a typical monthly social media/seo contract starts at $1,500/month. Fees can increase depending on the details, expenses and man-hours required to achieve your goals. Contact me so we can chat about your goals and needs.

LICENSING AND USAGE

So what kind of photo/video license are we talking about? 

COMMERCIAL video/photography is used to sell or promote a product, service, or idea. Advertising, marketing, and promotional activities all fall into this category.

EDITORIAL video/photography is used primarily for journalistic or educational purposes. Images featuring people and things not licensed for commercial use can be used in newspapers, magazines (print and online), as well as text books and educational blogs.

RETAIL video/photography is generally commissioned or purchased for the client’s own personal use (e.g., wedding photography, senior portraits, pet photography, fine art, etc.). Licensing issues do not arise as often in this category. While the photographer retains the copyright, the client’s fee may include a grant of reproduction rights. 

This can get deep, quickly. I like to keep things simple so here's what I do. In all situations, I retain the copyright and ownership of all video and photos I create. I grant the client an non-exclusive license to use the end product in perpetuity for any uses which do not involve using end product to generate direct additional income. If the client is using end product to generate direct income - we need talk first. If the client demands exclusivity, copyright, or ownership, then we get down to brass tacks and talk about how the end product will  be used so we can assign a fair market value for the photos and/or video in question.

One last point - I never release unedited, raw video or photos to clients. Call it quality control. I don't bend on this point.

TRAVEL REQUIREMENtS

**Shoots outside the 60 mile limit of the Plano, TX CBD require all travel, food, and other expenses to be covered by the client above and beyond the agreed-upon day rate unless other arrangements have been made. This determination is made by calculating the distance from the Plano, TX city hall to the location of the shoot. Client must book and pay upfront for any flights, hotels, personal use of vehicle, and rental vehicles which may be required. Food and other costs will be expensed back to the client after the location shoot is completed. Travel costs in photographer-owned vehicles is calculated at $0.65/mile.  

Travel days (full-days required to travel to and from locations for shoots) are billed a flat rate of $250-per day plus expenses.
