LOCATION OPTIONS & RELATED FEES

Your Location / On-Site
Fees vary
There are some situations where traveling to you might be the best choice. On-site options may include residential, commercial, or outdoor locations. For on-site photography that requires studio lighting, a setup fee of $150 may be required. A travel fee of $100 per hour may apply for destinations more than 10 miles from my home in Silverlake. In cases where the photography is conducted on public or private property, I may be limited by the guidelines set forth by the location management, city policy, or law enforcement. Appropriate permits are required for any restricted location.
 
Home Studio
no charge
For my non-commercial work involving single individuals, I’m happy to offer budget-conscious clients access to my home studio. In the interest of full disclosure, “home studio” is a fancy marketing term for any room located within my well-organized, clean residence. My home studio is not climate controlled but it does offer a space suitable for individual portraits or headshots.  There are no setup charges or travel fees for work performed in my home studio which is located in Silverlake, California.
 
Professional Studio Rental
$575 to $750
For small to mid-sized projects that require the use of a no-frills professional studio, I can recommend several studio locations around the City of Los Angeles depending upon the requirements of your project. The fee for use of said studios is $575 for a half day or $750 for a full day. My own lighting and equipment setup charges are included in this fee. Weekend use requires an additional fee of $500 per day.
