Photographic services excluding shoots, e.g., photo restoration, touch-up and image editing, are $120 per hour.  Pricing for photo printing and scanning depends on the parameters of the images, such as: resolution, color depth, paper type, size, lifespan, and the required color accuracy.  For example, reproducing a standard 4x6 color photograph costs $6.00.  Additional copies are $2.00.  Enlarging a color 4x5 print to 8x10 costs $20.  Additional copies are $10.  Properly stored photographs should last a minimum of 45 years for standard chromogenic prints.  Greater longevity up to 200 years is available for an additional fee.  Mounting, laminating and framing are available at additional cost.

Photography, including portraits, events and product photos, is priced based on the specifications of the job, e.g., location, complexity of the shoot, equipment required.  Passport or similar photos are $25.00, which includes two prints up to 2” x 2”.  An on-site portrait with strobe lighting (those big umbrella things), is typically $350, which includes a CD containing all shots taken and two 8x10 prints of the selected shot.  Touch-up is included.  Large portraits, eg, 20x30, require the use of film, which adds $50-100 plus the cost of the print.  A professional make-up artist is available at additional cost.
