Photographer from Boulder, CO - Will travel up to 500 miles

$125 - $975 per event
My typical process in a nutshell,

I prefer the initial meet and greet to be informal. I photograph to relax, and want my client/'s to share the same experience. Introduce me to all parties involved, to make sure everyone is online about my presence, and lastly for security reasons.
I prefer a walk through (at least two hours prior to the event, or the day before) of the location, to get familiar with the initial/available lighting, so I can have a comfortable feel of the setting. If possible I would need a small safe area/spot to stage and hold my equipment.
Do you have any special requests, mental notations I should be aware of?
Let's keep the communication open, after all that's half the job.
Remember, I'm here, so you can have memories to hold onto.

My Past in a nutshell,

Born in Boulder Co., I grew up with a camera in my hand, it was a Yashica 44 twin lens 1958 model. I now shoot with a Canon EOS-R Full-frame (30 mp.), and a Canon 7-D for industrial use. In the mid to late 80s I began Hot Air Ballooning in Austin Texas, eventually I moved to the Seattle area in 1990, and for the next ten years in Washington State, began to photograph Balloon rallies/events and charter flights for various local pilots in the Northwest. I learned my lighting techniques by getting up at 4 AM in the morning with the sun, and photographing the balloons as we took off from our launch sight st sunrise. Around 2006 I met a Conceptual artist (Johann Eyfells) in Fredericksburg Texas, and began to document (through photography) his life, until the present time, when he passed away December 3, 2019. He was not only my client but became a friend after spending the last few years working on his property. Photographing his life and work, honed my focus and interest in industrial photography.

My rates in a nutshell,

Each scenario presents a different pricing standard. Here is a sample of my rates. Please keep in mind, I'm not hardnose about rates, I am flexible, just ask me questions about your needs, and I'm sure we can work something out.

$100 to $225 per hour, one hour minimum, (does not include travel time if over 25 miles).
Day/Event rates (4-6 hrs., adjustments made for longer times) range from $500 to $800, or $125 to $975 per event (includes 20-50 edited images per/hr). I can allow for additional time without an hourly charge.

Minimum show up fee (1 hour minimum) $75, or $125 to stand down (2 hr max) with no shots fired (meaning no pictures taken).
Please provide details on specific arrangements, (ie...indoors/outdoors, time of day, length of time to expect, quantity of images, images handed over on flash drive/sent electronically...) so I can give you a more precise rate.
I will also travel as far as Colorado/New Mexico for personal and private events (surcharges of $350 plus $100 per night for lodging).

$325.00 - Individual Branding

(I provide a portable studio/back-drop when I visit, or you can choose your own home/office setting. Please be aware, I delete images after one week, to maintain storage capacity.
