Commercial Price Guide

First of all, thank you for considering us for your current project. Our over twenty-years experience has taught us that our clients appreciate knowing in advance exactly what they are buying and how much it will cost so we hope this guide of the conditions under which we accept assignments will answer your questions. Please note every quote we issue provides a breakdown of each of the following categories.


Fees: Our standard commercial photography fees are based upon an eight-hour photography day priced at $2000 and travel, layover time and site audit.

Post Production: Expert editing and refinement of your photographs on the computer is billed per hour.

Cancellations: In order to protect the time reserved for your project we may ask you to guarantee the fees for the day(s) scheduled when those days have also been requested by others.

Expenses: Billable expenses may include (but are not limited to) assistant’s fee, transportation (air fare, car hire etc), accommodation, meals, transfers, rental of special equipment, prints and additional insurance cover.

Deposit: A 30% advance is required before a project can commence, 50% for the first time you commission DC Images professional services.

All pricing includes GST.


We edit every project and deliver the best of every assignment. We retain the copyright to all photographs DC Images executes for an assignment, while giving the client the usage rights and as many of the images as are needed for the client’s use. We supply the technical and artistic ability to illustrate an idea photographically and we are selling the right to produce those illustrations. Among the rights we retain is the right to resell all non-proprietary images but we do not exercise this right until one year after the publication date of the original project, thereby giving the client the exclusive use and impact for that period of time.
