19 Mar How much does it cost for a glamour photo shoot and why?
How much does a glamour photo shoot cost? There is no definite answer to this question. It depends. Especially when it comes to glamour photo shoots, where you have to keep a lot of elements in mind. What is included in the pricing of a photo session and why are glamour photo shoots so expensive? I’ve done hundreds of glamour photo shoots, so I hope you find my advice useful.
Overseas outdoor photo shoots – additional costs
A lot depends on the scenery of the photo shoot. If you want to have an overseas photo shoot, the photographer has to include transportation, flights, hotels and paying for licenses for the chosen outdoor locations in the pricing of the photo shoot. Overseas photo shoots are very fashionable these days, although in the era of the coronavirus pandemic, they are more difficult to arrange. Maybe in this case it is worth betting on…
Glamour photo sessions in a photo studio
If you decide to have a glamour photo session in a photo studio, keep in mind that each hour of studio rental costs money. On top of that, lights, backdrops… Costs are rising. Check if the photographer you have chosen has his or her own photo studio – then the costs of the session should be lower.
Set design for glamour photo session
Every piece of scenery for a photo shoot needs to be rented or purchased. You may have to order a special photo wall or use various accessories and add-ons if it’s a photo session in a hotel room, for example, or outdoors. It is not worth saving money on this. Good scenery is the key to getting the best pose during the photo session.
Make-up artist, hair stylist and fashion stylist during the glamour session
Each additional person during the photo shoot is an additional cost shown in the photo shoot quote. You have the option to order a hairdresser, who will choose for you and prepare the best hairstyle for your glamour session. You have the option to order a fashion stylist who will choose the best lingerie that will fit your figure and the mood of the photo session. You can also choose a make-up artist, who will take care of your image in the photos and will emphasize with good make-up what is the best in your beauty. What is your budget for the photo shoot? If your budget is small, it is better to prepare your makeup, hairstyle and outfit on your own.
How many glamour photos do you want to get from the photographer?
The price for the photo session depends on the number of images you want to ultimately get from the photographer. 10, 30, 60 or maybe 90 photos? Each additional photograph means more work in processing and detailing the photo. If you are already traveling somewhere abroad for a photo shoot or you are planning a special setting for that dream photo shoot, it is worth paying extra and getting more photos.
Glamour photographer’s experience
Ultimately, the price for a glamour photo shoot goes up when the photographer you choose has a lot of experience and a large portfolio. You can always reduce the cost of the photo shoot if you choose a beginner amateur, but is it worth the risk? Unfortunately, such cooperation may give bad results and poor photos. And most of all, you will waste your time and discourage yourself from glamour photos, which really can be beautiful.
Preparations for a glamour photo session
Remember to include your preparation time in the cost of the photo shoot. Observe the best blogs about glamour photography.
