GIAN SAPIENZA PHOTOGRAPHY LABOR PRICING

Why use a professional like Gian Sapienza Photography when you know a friend who will shoot pictures for free?  A few answers to this question below.

1)        FAA certified Part 107 commercial sUAS pilot.  Issued by the FAA only to sUAS drone pilots that pass the FAA testing and knowledge exams and maintain recency every twenty-four months.  It is unlawful for a drone operator to fly without a Part 107 certificate for any commercial work.  Your business can be liable for using an unlicensed pilot.  GFS Images is insured and licensed for drone operations.

2)        Equipment.  Professional equipment from architectural lenses to the highest quality camera sensors, DJI Drones, light modifiers and lenses are used by GFS Images.

3)        Licensing.  Gian Sapienza Photography is licensed in both the city of Las Vegas and Clark County.  An unlicensed photographer is not allowed to shoot in either the city or county.

4)        Insurance.  Gian Sapienza Photography carries professional business insurance, something most photographers do not have.

5)        Consultation.  Discussing your needs and vision for what you want your photographs to look like or feel like through discussions and exchanging examples.  Or just let the photographer decide the look for your shoot and take that concern off of your list.

Finally, and most importantly...quality and experience.  Twenty-five years of shooting on film and in digital as well as having the knowledge and skills to use professional lighting equipment is not cheap…but well worth it when the images matter.

 

No prints are provided with any package.  Prints can be purchased separately via www.gfsimages.com

All jobs will require a simple contact before they begin.

50% Deposit on all services or packages over $250.00

Additional "touched-up" final images are $10 per image above what is included in a specific package

Additional travel surcharge of $50.00 per package applies to the following locations:  Valley of Fire SP, Mt. Charleston, Nelson NV, Bonnie Springs and Red Rock Canyon NCA.  These locations may also require permits which are not included in any package price and vary by location and time to obtain permits.

What you will NOT receive. You will not receive 100% of all photos taken, or every click of the shutter from a session.  Closed eyes, out-of-focus, off-exposures, test shots, experimental poses etc. are part of the creative building process to provide the customer with an exceptional and professional final product.  So, do not expect every single image taken under the assumption that all images are a part of or included in the session.

REAL ESTATE PACKAGES ~ STILL IMAGES, DRONE IMAGES & VIDEO

     TWILIGHT IMAGES~Packages do NOT include separate twilight images.  A second twilight shoot is an additional $125.00 on top of any package below and will include up to five exterior images.

DRONE IMAGES are only included when the home is in legal airspace to fly based on FAA airspace regulations.  No pricing discounts if FAA laws prevent aerial imaging and drone flights for your address or location. 

ALL FAA LAWS WILL BE FOLLOWED A FAA waiver to fly in restricted airspace can take up to 90-days once submitted.  Some waivers based on location are now automated with the FAA, but there is no guaranteed approval time for a FAA auto waiver.  Automated waivers are still subject to their approval process/speed.

GFS iMAGES will not provide you with photographic evidence of both your business and ours violating the law by flying in protected airspace without authorization.  Almost 95% of Las Vegas is in class B airspace which is either restricted or prohibited for drone operation without waivers from the FAA and McCarran ATC.  If someone tells you otherwise, they are violating the law and so is your business.

DRONE MAPPING SERVICES~Contact for quote.  There are so many variables that go into mapping that all mapping jobs are done by discussion of needs.  Maps for crops are far different than maps for mining, so no two jobs are the same in size or nature.

Due to the complexity and nature of food photography expect about one image every thirty minutes as a guideline, but no specific number of menu items are guaranteed per hour or session.  A food session could take several hours to several days to complete depending on the size of the menu or items being photographed.  While we work fast, this is an hourly based project and we will work with your budget.

F&B price DOES NOT include props, stylist, decorations, actual food or beverage products, special settings, designs or specialty backgrounds.  All concepts, props or "looks", utensils, plates, containers, recipes, products, supplies and decorations must be supplied by the client.  Shoot must take place at the location, kitchen, outlet or bar supplied by the client.  Food and drinks must be prepared fresh as the shoot takes place.  Price is only valid within fifty-miles miles of Las Vegas, NV.

(no permit or location fees included)

TRADITIONAL WEDDING PACKAGES~Email us for our package options for traditional, medium to large weddings.

 

NON-FOOD PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY~ Due to the complex nature and variety of commercial products, product photography is priced per job based on the client's needs, quantity of items and photographic goals for each product.  One item may take hours to properly light to obtain a professional result while another may take much less time.  Items are shot "in studio" and scheduled based on an agreed upon deadline with the client.  The client is not present for the studio work but will receive updates and sample images to ensure the final objective will be met.  Contact us for pricing.

ON-SITE 4X6" PHOTO PRINTING~$775.00 For up to 300 prints of entry images, step-repeat or photo op station (not every photo of an event is printed onsite, just the agreed upon station).  Each archival printed image includes a simple clear slipcover.  If your client requires cardboard frames, these are an additional charge.  This is NOT a photo booth.  Quantities above 300 prints are $75.00 per 100 prints.

ALL PAYMENTS MADE ONLINE WILL HAVE A 3.00% (THREE PERCENT) SURCHARGE ADDED TO THE INVOICE TOTAL WHEN USING OUR THIRD-PARTY ONLINE BILLING & INVOICING SYSTEM "SQUARE".  THIS IS DUE TO "SQUARE" CHARGING THIS FEE FOR PROCESSING ONLINE INVOICES THROUGH THEIR BUSINESS.  THIS WILL BE DETAILED IN THE SUMMARY SECTION AT THE BOTTOM OF ALL INVOICES.  THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.

WE DO NOT ACCEPT CHECKS.  TO AVOID THE ADDTIONAL 3% FEE CHARGED FOR ONLINE PROCESSING, CASH IS THE ONLY OTHER OPTION.
