ACCOMMODATION, HOTEL OR RESTAURANT PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGE:
As a guide: This price includes me to arrive at your accommodation property or restaurant with some basic props, basic prepared food and drinks and an assistant. This price Includes the first site visit, the time I need to prepare, plan the shoot and process the images. You will be supplied with 10-30 hero images you can use for your website and bookings sites, you will have theses images available to use whenever you need for advertising, business cards, pamphlets or other promotional material. I will also be supply you with high-resolution images of all other photos I take on the shoot, they will be edited and yours to keep, so you can use them on social media or whatever you may need them for. As a guide this would cost $1900 If you want, for example, big long lunches, professional models or other props in the photos we will have to factor in more costs, and travel costs outside Hobart. Payment plans can be arranged. How many nights would you need to get in your accommodation to cover these costs? Not many!! but I’m positive great photos will sell more room nights!!
