Commercial Pricing Options

Andrew has some things scheduled through the year, however, he is almost always able to fit new clients in. He prioritises his VIP clients and especially those who keep him on a retainer. 90% of jobs are at least two days, as time for preparation, research, shooting, and post processing are essential.

Covid life is hard for everyone; so, 20% off for 2020 and most of 2021 for beginning to medium businesses (returning customers automatically qualify for 10% off; only one discount can be applied per invoice). All prices now in Australian Dollars (AUD).

Please contact us for more information, invoicing specifics, and bookings.

What is "royalty free"? Basically, RF is usually a non-exclusive, perpetual licence with no further payment or permissions needed. Cannot resell and the copyright is retained by Travel Photos PtyLtd. RF might allow exclusive usage. Exclusive royalty free costs more, but prevents your competitors from being able to purchase and use images of your products.

What is "rights managed"? In short, RM is a time, geography, and distribution limited licence. It allows a range of commercial uses, and exclusive options. Royalty free is intended for cheap and easy projects, but rights managed is intended for exclusivve, difficult, and/or commissioned work.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept "shoot some photos for us, and we'll buy some if they're any good". Sadly, we can't say to hotels "We'll stay in a room, and if it's any good, we'll pay the bill". Consequently, we only accept defined jobs, and all work is invoiced.
