private commission pricing

I’ve always believed that customers should know the full picture, financially, before contracting a photographer. Surprises aren’t always welcome! If you can’t find any particular price, or if you have any questions on pricing, please do email or call me.

Each service page contains pricing information specific to that service. These pages contain the same collective information.

* All my prices can be accessed directly through the main menu items at the top of this page.

* Unless otherwise stated, all prices on this site are in New Zealand dollars & are inclusive of standard NZ gst

* I don’t charge different rates for different locations & only charge travelling expenses for out of auckland commissions.

* I do charge a 50% deposit for weekend bookings (non-refundable for cancellations less than 7 working days prior) as weekend & evening slots are highly sought & other clients often have to be let down to secure one.

GENERAL PORTRAIT SESSION - $299 (including $200-worth of prints & lifetime archiving of your images)

Pregnancy, baby, kids, families & other portrait sessions. These sessions will cost you $299.

The price includes lifetime image archiving of your images, so you can always come back to them (see for details) plus a credit of $200* for any prints purchased at the viewing session. So, if you are happy with the pictures I take & order prints, the session can be virtually free. Of course, if you are not happy for whatever reason, you can get your money back or have another session.

So, it’s entirely Risk-free & I assure you it is fun!

A portrait session can be an individual, couple, family or group of friends; babies, children or adults. It can be in the studio or at your favourite location. A session usually lasts around an hour, but it can be shorter or often much longer if I don’t think I’ve captured the right images.

If you would like a professional stylist to help you look your best for a portrait session, I can arrange that for you

Pricing is very simple:

Hair & Makeup (one person does both) $180 per person.

Hair only $120 per person.

Makeup only $120 per person.


A glamour shoot requires hair & makeup, so the $499 price includes the hour’s session, a hair & makeup specialist for an hour (additional stylist hours or part hours will cost $160), plus a mounted 10x12” hand print. Plus, 10% off additional prints or other products ordered at the viewing session.


The price of $1,750 includes a full day of pampering. From wardrobe analysis & a personal shopping session with a specialist, to hair styling & a makeup makeover from the best, followed by a photoshoot & prints to take home. What man would not take his beautiful partner out for a fabulous dinner to round off this day? Go to the makeover page for full details...

ACTORS - $260

The price of $260 includes an hour’s session & allows for up to 3 quick costume sessions. You get x30 6x4” mechanical prints & a CD of email resolution jpegs, plus 10% off hand print prices ordered within 6 weeks. Go to the actors page for full details...

MODELS - from $260

model sessions are particularly difficult to put a figure on. This is because models could require simple head shots for an agency (see actors), glamour shots for a portfolio (see glamour portraits), a portrait session with just a makeup specialist... These examples might give you some indication of price, but do please call me to discuss what you would like. Go to the models page for some more details...
