Portraiture pricing

Blackcurrant Photography charges a little more at the start to cover the work I do before, during and after you get in front of the camera so that your after shoot purchases are reasonably attainable for you, and not a hard sell for me.  Prices below are for a standard photojournalistic or portraiture photoshoot. For a themed fine art shoot please contact me for a custom quote.

Base portraiture coverage for 1-2 people. AU $410

If you choose to add prints and presentation items from my pricelist, the minimum spend (including portraiture coverage) is approximately $500.

Loose prints start at $15.00 each for a 6×4 inch print (with a minimum spend of $70). You can choose to add a presentation package to your base coverage or you can choose your own items from the pricelist which is valid and fixed for 90 days post shoot. All formal quotes are accompanied by a pricelist, contract and ordering details and you will receive both hard and digital copies of your paperwork.

Portraiture and package pricing is correct at 20/1/13 and is subject to change.
Please phone me on 0422 871 240 or email info@blackcurrantphotography.com.au for a detailed quote.

Please note - Individual sessions are for those aged 12+. A legal guardian must be present for those under 18 (peace of mind and forms to sign!). Please leave smaller family members in the company of a responsible adult for the duration of our session.

Please take a look at the portraiture page for a description of my style and what happens on a photo shoot.

I need a minimum 2-3 weeks notice for portraiture and  commercial photoshoots.

Some of the info I’ll need you to gather before you contact me are:

  • A contact name, number and email address.
  • A suburb and/or postcode for delivery of finished work.
  • The location for the photoshoot. Some locations such as national parks require photography licence fees to be paid.
  • The date of the shoot (an estimate is ok).
  • How many people will be photographed.
  • If there is access to natural light at your location (I don’t have studio lighting equipment but if necessary it may be hired at additional cost).
  • For portraiture shoots, whether the pictures will be framed, put in an album etc. As a general rule I do not provide pictures on disk to domestic clients.

If I can’t help you with your enquiry, I will try to suggest someone who can.
