Event Photography Criteria & Rates

Weddings start at $5000

I take upon a limited, carefully selected number of events a year to maintain a fresh, open minded approach and give my clients undivided attention, geniune excitement and creative energy. I am primarily a professional sports photographer and that is the why of the limitation so there is no conflict with a sports assignment.

My hourly rate is $300 per hour and this is based on a minimum of 5-6-7 or 8 hours of coverage time, depending on your needs and wants.

I provide high-resolution digital negatives with a personal usage agreement, printable up to 8x10 size. This does not include any retouching. We can do retouching on individual digital files for $35 an hour (typically two images per hour), or if you purchase a 16x20 or larger of any image, we will provide you with the edited image file at no extra charge.

For 2 photographers add an additional $400
For a coffee table style album, 8x10 size $800

Jim is available in the USA and Canada to capture your event. Based in Lodi/Stockton CA. - he frequently travels to various destination locations to spend the weekend with his clients. for Jim's commissioning rate for local events please call Jim for a quote, this quote usually includes one-two sessions. And if wanting an album of selected images from the event the quote tiers up accordingly.

For destination events please contact Jim for the commissioning rate.

Jim specializes in the smaller event where the need is for 2 or up to 3 hours with limited coverage. Please contact Jim for a quote.

Also there is a non-refundable advance fee due at the time of booking. This reserves your date and it locks me in as your photographer.

The advance fee is $600 to hold and reserve your event date and the balance will be due 8 days prior to the event. No personal checks accepted, certified funds, cash or major credit card.
