How much do I charge?

I charge an hourly flat rate of $75/hour for all aspects of Creative Direction (Website Design | Graphic Design | Copy Writing | Editing | Social Media + Brand Advice + Photography).

I am efficient, diligent and energised and will work with you to set a brief that fits your business goals and your budget.

If you're not sure and just starting out, a one-on-one 2-hr intensive brainstorm helps get you motivated and focused so your money is more wisely spent in the long-run.

How many hours do I need?

Okay, so I charge $75 per hour, but how many hours do I need? As you can imagine, every project is different. But, here's a guide for 'straightforward' projects:

LOGO - Primary logo design $600 AUD includes 2-3 design options in black and white for print and web.

WEBSITE DESIGN - Design, content, copy, up to 10 pages that does not include a store-front, legal copy such as Policy or T&Cs or photoshoot ($1500 AUD) We can discuss your project so I can provide you with an accurate estimate before proceeding.

MAIL DATABASE - Set-up and link a client-friendly email database to your website to enhance and build your audience $450 AUD

PHOTOGRAPHY- I'm very happy to work with your photographer. But, if you'd like to engage my services then a guide to my fees is below:

Half-day shoot - (4 hrs on location at $75/hr) might require up to 8 hrs studio editing at $50/hr, so $700 AUD.

Full-day shoot - (8 hrs on location at $75/hr) might require up to 16hrs studio editing at $50/hr, so $1400 AUD.

Ultimately, I'm very happy to work with you to meet your budget as best we can and to achieve the best possible outcome together.

What do I get from the shoot?

My rate includes the allotted on-location time, as many photos as I can take in the time assigned, high res (for print) and low res (for web/social media) copies of the photos + the time taken to edit and prepare them back in my studio.

Where does the shoot take place and does your rate include studio hire?

The location depends on what we’re shooting (product/food/interiors etc) and your choice of backdrop (natural light/white/neutral/styled indoors/styled outdoors/real life etc). If you have loads of natural light and suitable space I can come to you. Let's talk about this!

When will I get my photos?

Your photos will be edited and supplied to you (generally) within 2 weeks of the shoot {earlier if I can}. Photos will be supplied via a Dropbox link or a USB memory stick, whichever we decide works best.

Do you travel?

Yes! The per hour rate is the same for a photo-shoot no matter where I go. A $35p/hr travel allowance is charged for photo-shoots beyond an hour's drive from the Macedon Ranges. For interstate and overseas assignments/collaborations, the airfare and accommodation need to be paid in advance (naturally, best rates will be booked to save costs).
