PRIVATE STUDIO OR LOCATION SITTING
The current studio sitting fee for a private dog session held at my Arlington, VA studio for a single dog is $125 (two dogs would add $75). In addition, a $125 minimum product/image order applies to all sessions. Orders can be for prints (suitable for framing or standalone) offered in a variety of sizes, items such as greeting cards and canvas or metal enlargements.
If you do not desire to order prints, you may choose the option to pay $250 total and receive a set of five web-ready images suitable for sharing on social media with a small watermark signature in the corner. This fee includes basic editing service. Additional images beyond five can be purchased for $45 per image.
SPECIAL PROMO: 16" x 20" CANVAS PRINT
16" x 20" Canvas print special -- for a limited time, I am offering a discount on this popular print. It is a sharp photographic reproduction printed on heavyweight poly cotton genuine artist canvas. Fade, scratch, crack and warp resistant. Printed directly onto the canvas and is suitable to hang as-is without a frame. Gallery wrapped on a 1.25" deep stretcher bar that is kiln dried, knot free, warp free, and finger joined for strength. Prints come ready to hang out of the box with pre-installed hanging hardware. Normal price is $175 and the special promo is $125 plus shipping (or you can pick up from my studio). This item applies to the minimum product order.
WHIMSICAL COMPOSITE DESIGNS
I can also provide a fun composite image of your dog and something whimsical or serious. See the images at the bottom of this page for recent examples. More info is on the design page.
HIGHER RESOLUTION IMAGE LICENSE OPTION
If you desire to have higher resolution images suitable for your own printing without any watermark for your personal or basic commercial use, the total fee is $500 and there's no print order requirement. This fee covers up to eight edited images. Please confirm intended commercial application as select larger scale commercial use may require an additional fee.
Additional fees may apply for location shoots. I can bring a portable studio to your location and if within 10 miles of 22204 zipcode, the travel charge would be $150 (addition to any prices above). We can also discuss the option to shoot on a location in a non-studio environment.
All prices assume you will provide a property release (like a model release, but for dogs), which allows me to add any images I've captured to my portfolio and use for any commercial purpose I desire. If you do not wish to sign this, I can provide a license buy-out price quote.
All prices are subject to change without notice. Please confirm fees prior to booking an appointment. All requests for discounts should be confirmed at time of booking.
To book your appointment, please contact me first to review scheduling options and once we confirm a plan, you will need to pay a $75 deposit online (button below) to confirm your appointment.
When I provide a sitting at an EVENT, I do not charge a studio sitting fee.
I will share digital proofs and if you desire to order prints or a high-resolution image, there is a $15 minimum print order. You can view proofs and order at the print store (prices are shown there). Visit the order page which has info and a link to my print store.
You are NOT under any obligation to purchase prints. You may also choose to order digital images for $45 each.
You may share the digital watermarked proofs via social media when a proper photo credit is included (link to this website URL). When I do not charge a sitting fee, the assumption is that you will sign a model release (in exchange for me waiving my normal sitting fee) and I may add any images to my portfolio and share as I desire. If after seeing the results you desire a follow-up studio session, please contact me to schedule (rates below).
When I approach you about doing a studio shoot of your dog as a model, I do not charge a studio sitting fee. You can also approach me about arranging your shoot as a model for my portfolio if you have a fairly unique or interesting dog. Just send me a pic and I can let you know. To thank you for sharing your wonderful pup with my portfolio, I will provide up to five FREE screen resolution images perfect for sharing on social media with a credit link (small watermark in the corner of the image).
I will also share digital proofs and if you desire to order prints or high-resolution images you can choose to do, but you do not need to purchase anything. I'll also provide a discount on any prints you may order.
