Notice of Price Increases

June 29, 2007 1:26 am

As of August 1, the following price increases will take place:

  • Digital licenses for professional use will increase to $40 for two years. We’ve held the current prices for three years.
  • Hourly rates will increase to $85/hr.
  • Package quotes for headshots and portraits will increase by 15%.
  • Travel rates will be brought into line with prevailing costs.

Current customers will be exempt from these increases until November 1. Commercial rates will continue to track prevailing national and international rates. Event photography print pricing will stay the same.

We regret the increases. However, they are necessary in order to maintain and increase our services.

Site Updates

We’re just about done with a bit of a renovation. The most visible part is more visual continuity between these pages and our Smugmug-hosted galleries. We also have added more header images and will continue to do so. [The header images are the images at the tops of the pages.] Not visible are are number of software upgrades, which should provide more capabilities and reliability.
