Commercial Pricing

Kerry Phillips is in the business of creating photographs and commerce requires structure. 

Thank you for your consideration and your review of our pricing. Please realize that the prices shown below are only estimates of costs. Please contact us for a detailed estimate of charges. 

Our price structure is based on a variety of factors, primarily usage and the number of images you require to be created.  


Two main factors determine fair pricing for photography, usage and the number of images created. Details follow. 

Usage addresses the manner and frequency that an image will be utilized.  

An image that is created for use in a small, regional, consumer magazine is priced less than one created for use in an advertisement in a national consumer magazine and/or annual report for a major corporation.  

The Number of Images you require is an important factor.  

Discounts come into play when we are asked to provide photography for an entire project annual report, entire brochure, Look Book or other project requiring multiple images. 

Time: We do not charge based on our time. Many of our shoots involve some sort of disruption to your workplace and We know you've hired us for our experience in order to keep that interruption to a minimum.

I do not supply clients with original receipts for any expenses for several reasons. I can give you copies of the original receipts for services incurred in the production of your photo shoot within reason. 

That said, please consider that we are independent contractors, not employees.  

When tax time comes, the CRA requires us to provide receipts to verify expenses on our Schedule C. The CRA (Canada Revenue Service) does not require you to have those receipts on hand.  

It is critical to the success of our business to maintain a proprietary supplier’s network. 

This applies to assistants and crew as well, it is critical throughout our supplier chain.  

Please discuss with us any issues you have with this policy before signing our contract for photographic services. 



For some photo buyers, the term "buyout" is interpreted as meaning the client can use the photo for unlimited placements for an unlimited time. Other buyers interpret "buyout" to mean a copyright transfer, or outright ownership. Unfortunately, the term "buyout" is not a legal term, is vague, and has different meanings to different people. In almost all cases, the client knows how the images he or she requires will be used and for how long. 

Unlimited usage requests are costly and in most cases will result in an estimate that must take into consideration unlimited worldwide usage.
