Photography Rates
Photographing Fayetteville, Springdale, Bentonville and Rogers AR


Joe tries to match creative fees with each client's budget. Some photo-shoots can be completed for a fixed fee or at a pre-shot rate; other projects must account for the time, complexity and use. Fees are always negotiated in advance.

Creative Fees

$150/ hour - $300 minimum

$1800/ day

Creative fees are based on a rate of $150/hour, with a $300 studio minimum. Particularly complex projects may qualify for the daily rate of $1800/day. Wittkop's most typical creative fee is $600 for a part-day assignment plus expenses. From a national perspective, fees are on the low end thanks to a smaller, regional Northwest Arkansas market.

Digital Capture Charge

$25/ image

Almost all photography is now produced digitally. Joe's digital work is usually delivered on a CD with proof sheets. He charges a digital capture fee of $25/image. This capture fee covers time and materials spent converting RAW digital files, printing proof sheets and burning CD's or uploading to an FTP site. When shooting film for clients, film and processing costs are charged instead.


$90/ hour

Some projects require more digital post production work than others. Examples include using Photoshop for simple retouching or to place a single image on multiple backgrounds. Additional time spent working with digital files is billed at $90/hour.
