Each section below is a separate task. Put them all together for a single job. Either Video or Stills (not both at the same time)
For the basic price add the time-on-site charges and the selected proof charges. Figure additional money for the prints and/or full size photo file disk.
1 - Still Pictures
For example: You might want a half day ($450, time on site), proofs on CD ($30) and a thumbnail book for the CD ($90). That would be $570. If you also wanted full-size photo files (like getting the negatives, for film) add $250 to get $820.
Final Print Prices:
$2 for 4x6's
$5 for 5x7's
$15 for 8x10's (on 8.5x11 paper)
$40 for 11x14 to 13x19 (on 13x19 paper)
Prices for larger sizes are arranged separately
Prints are very long lasting fade-resitant artworks. They are made on archival paper with archival (pigment) inks. According to Epson, they should last anywhere from 60 to 200 years before noticeable fading according to "accelerated-aging" tests.
$250 for a CD-ROM or DVD-data disk with full-size files. Allows you to make your own prints from the files. This is the digital equivalent of getting the negatives for film. You can make your own prints from this disk (two copies of, actually). These are the full-size (high-resolution) files only, no proofs.
Having high-resolution files only on this disk is to avoid getting the wrong (low) resolution files used to make your prints if you take them to Costco, Wal-Mart, etc. The proof size look terrible as prints because they are designed for display on a monitor or TV. You always need to use the high-resolution files.
Types of Proofs
Book of Proof Prints
$90 for 200 (4 x 6 in) prints in a photo book (for hand viewing) - This is the standard pre-digital-age method.
Proofs on CD-ROMS or DVD data disk (for computer)
$30 for First CD-ROM
$10 each additional CD-ROM.
Thumbnail Book to accompany the CD-ROM or DVD data disk computer proofs.
$80 for First Thumbnail Book
$60 for each additional thumbnail book.
CD-ROM proofs are low-resolution files viewed on a computer in HTML pages using that computer's web browser. These are files on the CD, not on the web.
Video Slide Show Proofs:
$75 for the first DVD or
$60 for the first VHS and
$15 for each subsequent video slide show (tape or DVD). The proofs play as a video slide show with the picture numbers underneath the slide.
The preparation for either DVD or VHS is the same for the initial conversion to a video file. The DVD requires an extra preparation so the first charge for a DVD is more.
However, if you order a DVD the work for a VHS is already done as well, so you can then order both VHS and DVD subsequent videos at the same price each.
VHS Tape Proofs - All Pictures on VHS video tape.
DVD video Proofs - All pictures on DVD video disk.
$450 half-day charge (4-hours or less stretching to 5 hours) or
$650 full-day charge (8-10 hours)
Use this handy table to estimate your probable costs depending on what you order. This does not include prices for prints.
2 - Video Coverage
$800 day charge shooting in Digital Video
+$300 20-minute Edited Video With Titles
Output to VHS: First tape: $25, Each Additional: $15
Output to DVD: First DVD: $60, Each Additional: $15
Proofs on CD
Proofs are now provided on a CD-ROM which can be placed in your computer
to view pictures and purchase prints. This is an easier and more flexible
way to view pictures and to put in individual orders.
To purchase a picture from a proof sheet. Click
on the picture to see a separate page with just that picture on it in
a larger size. You will notice that there is a drop-down list box with
paper sizes. As you change the options in this box you will see the price
listed to the left. To purchase, click on the "Add To Cart" button.
I use PayPal because they take care of the security matters on credit
cards, etc. I don't want to have any of that information on
my site where I would have to worry about security.
If you would rather not go through the PayPal method you may call me
directly at 816-471-4110 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In either case I need to have the picture name and the size in which you would
like to see it printed.
