We are based in the Washington DC area.

We travel, a lot.


We practice a very simple fee structure; we call it the 'No Obligation Fee'.

We do not charge any fixed or upront fees — no day fee, no hourly fee, none.

Instead, before the job, we agree on a price per final selected photo. If you use one photo, you pay for that photo – that’s it – and we give you the high resolution image! If you use 25 photos, then you pay for 25. This pushes us to be our best. We also agree on a maximum amount. Once you’ve reached that amount, all other images are free. So if we agree on a 50-image ceiling and you like 80 shots, you only pay for 50. This allows clients to set a top end budget.

Only if applicable and agreed to, we charge for extra expenses, notably distant travel, client-requested special equipment, etc.

No expenses = No extra charge.

For group events, e.g. a school field trip, we offer two options: group buy out per image or individual purchasing by participants.

Some examples of fees charged in past:

SMALL AND SCHOOL EVENTS: $25 to $50 per image selected (group buy out); $6 to $12 per image selected (individual purchasing);

COMMERCIAL ASSIGNMENTS: $250 and up per image.


Our video services are on quote exclusively. We practice both project and day-based fees depending on project scope, equipment and necessary resources.
