Notes on Travel and Hourly Pricing:
Travel time is billable time. It is usually included in the cost of the quote, however in some circumstances -- where the destination of the job is outside of the Birmingham/Royal Oak area -- an additional fee will normally be charged.
Hourly Rate for Overtime
Rarely a project takes longer than expected. In situations where the photographer is asked to do additional work that is outside of the quoted time/deliverables, the photographer will charge an hourly fee of $150/h. Extra fees are never charged without first notifying and gaining permission from the client to proceed.
Retouching & Post-production
Digital Retouching (includes coloring, dust removal, contrast etc.) - $125/h
If prints are desired, they are printed onto gorgeous metallic paper.
