Baseline Rates

$ 250.00 per hour for still photography and $1000.00 per minute of finished video.
Rates can depend a great deal on the job and the client so the numbers listed above is a baseline. Editorial and commercial rates are two different things. I use FotoQuote Pro for stock images and ASMP rates for commercial assignments. Stock images can be purchased at https://loudounnow.photoshelter.com , http://www.newscom.com and http://www.gettyimages.com. Editorial assignments depend entirely on the size of publication and the length of the assignment. If the assignment sends me into harms way rates double. All rates are subject to change after 60 days.
