Pet Product Photography Investment
One-time investment; forever returns
Most of our clients invest between $750-$2500 in our product photography.
You can see more specific pricing for the three different types of product photos below.
For an itemized estimate please complete the form at the bottom of the page, detailing all of your needs.
Products on Solid White Backgrounds
$150 setup/tear-down/prep/admin fee
These are products on solid white backgrounds, for use in e-commerce websites or Amazon.
These are your ‘bread & butter’ product photos for main product listings on a website, in Google shopping and other basic use.
Products on Colored Backgrounds With Floors
$150 setup/tear-down/prep/admin fee
These are products on different colored backgrounds, with or without a white, wood or concrete floor. They are ideal for auxiliary use on e-commerce websites or Amazon, in addition to the main white background photo.
Stylized Product Photos
Start at $150 each
Setup/teardown/prep fee varies, based on prep work
These are stylized photos with styled lighting and/or props/ingredients that enhance/reflect what’s included in the product.
These are perfect for high-value use, like hero photos on a website, or product photos in paid digital and/or print ads.
The above pricing is for what we call ‘standard’ sized products, which are products that are up to 12” on the longest/tallest side.
(The fuzzy brown hedgehog stuffed toy you see in the photos above is exactly 12” wide.)
Products that are larger than 12” are considered oversized and incur an additional studio setup fee to prep and tear down our larger studio.
Simple/minimal cleanup is included in each product photo price.
We will let you know when we receive your products if we think they will require additional retouching above what we have quoted.
You then have the option of shipping new products to us.
These are products on different colored backgrounds, with or without a white, wood or concrete floor, ideal for auxiliary use on e-commerce websites or Amazon, in addition to the main white background photo. We like to select colors that enhance the branding/colors on the product(s).
If you have a very specific brand color you’d like us to use, let us know and we’ll see if we can get it for you. If we can’t get the background in your brand color, we may be able to color-match using Photoshop.
(Please note that the purchase of a special background color and/or additional Photoshop retouching work are not included in the price listed here.)
Colors we have in studio for standard-sized products:
- Sky blue
Hard-to-source props/ingredients will incur an additional administrative fee along with the cost of the props/ingredients.
You can waive the additional administrative fee if you purchase the props/ingredients and have them shipped to us. (This does not apply for perishables like fruits and/or vegetables.)
Please complete the form at the bottom of this page, detailing your needs, and we will send you an estimate of total costs.
Your questions about pet product photography, answered
Q: How far in advance do we need to book a shoot?
It depends on the size of your project.
If you only need a handful of great product photos, we may be able to get you in within 7-10 days.
For larger projects it’s best to allow 2-3 weeks prior to you needing the finished files.
The final quarter (October-December) is always our busiest time of the year, so it’s not uncommon for us to be booked out 4-6 weeks in advance during those months.
Occasionally we are able to do super last-minute shoots.
Let us know what your deadline is when you reach out.
Q: Do you photograph pets with the products?
We sure can!
That falls under the category of ‘lifestyle’ shoot.
You can see information and pricing on those shoots on our lifestyle photography page.
The information and pricing you see on this page is for products alone without any talent.
Q: What size products do you photograph?
Our standard size products are up to 12” in length, width or height.
Products that are larger than 12” in length, width, or height we consider ‘oversized’.
Oversized products incur an additional fee for a larger studio setup.
Q: When is payment due?
For projects under $1500 we require payment in full at the time of booking. We won’t hold space on our calendar until we receive payment.
For projects above $1500 we split the invoices in two, with 50% due at the time of booking, and the remaining 50% due prior to sending the finished files to you.
For very large projects with extensive retouching, we may split the invoices into three, with the second invoice due prior to the retouching work, and the final invoice due prior to sending the finished deliverables.
We will include the billing timeline in your estimate.
Q: Can we view the photo session remotely as it's taking place?
Yes, for an additional fee that pays for our digital tech.
Most of our clients elect not to incur this additional fee because they are confident in our abilities to create product photos that meet their needs based on the photos they see on this page.
If your company is making a sizable investment in product photography and we are creating a catalog of product images for your current and future use, you may find the additional investment in live remote viewing is worth it.
Q: What kind of retouching is included?
For most product photos, we do simple/minimal retouching, since most of our product clients are small/medium businesses.
For this reason, we ask that you mail us products that are in excellent condition.
We do more extensive retouching for images that will be used for high-value use, like print advertising.
Let us know what kind of retouching you need before you book so we can quote the retouching time accordingly.
See our retouching portfolio here.
Side note- we can also retouch your existing photo content and UGC as well!
Q: Do your pet product photos meet Amazon requirements?
If you tell us ahead of time that your product photos are for Amazon use, then we certainly make sure they meet Amazon’s requirements.
We will need your identifier (Amazon ASIN, 13-digit ISBN, EAN, JAN, or UPC) to use for the filenames.
If you don’t tell us until after we have delivered your files that they need to be Amazon-compliant, there will be an additional fee for the additional retouching and file renaming.
So please let us know when you reach out that you need pet product photos for Amazon listings.
Q: Do you shoot on spec? We’d like you to create custom images for us for free and then compare your work to that of two other photographers.
Sorry, we don’t shoot on spec, and recommend other photographers don’t either, for a wide variety of different reasons.
Not the least of which is that as a company, when you pay a professional $0 for services, you’ll get results that reflect that value. So you can’t reasonably compare results from zero value services.
Additionally, we value our time and services and choose to work with companies who feel the same way.
If you’d like to book an abbreviated paid test shoot let us know and we’ll see what we can do.
Q: Do you provide product photography services in exchange for the products themselves? We have some bandannas/dog beds/cat treats/food dispenser we’d like to gift you in exchange for your photography services.
Look for a product photographer on Fiverr who is not located in the United States or other developed country.
Q: We have other questions that we don't see answered here. How do we get more information?
Give us a shout! We’d love to hear from you.
