W Thomas Payne Photography
Unlike most photographers, I do not sell "packages" of photos.
I do not maintain a studio or display space, which saves you both time and money.
My shoot with you is customized to fit your desires. Therefore, there are no set prices for shooting with you, please request a quote.
Portraits are scheduled at a time convenient to you, at your location. After the shoot, you will receive a CD of low resolution images as a proof sheet to help you make your selections. I will then make those results available to you for you or your family to order prints of as many - or as few - of each photograph as you'd like for delivery to your home.
INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY PORTRAITS: A typical sitting takes around 2 hours. This includes setting up backdrops and lighting in your home. For outdoor shoots, rescheduling may be necessary due to weather conditions.
Fees for individual and family portraits are payable with a deposit of $50 paid in advance. Deposits may be paid by personal check received at least ten (10) days in advance, or by credit card at least 7 days in advance. The balance of the fee is due upon my arrival at the shoot, and may only be paid in cash or check at that time. DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE; however, you may reschedule your shoot within thirty (30) days.
BUSINESS PORTRAITS: For business portraits, you may schedule one or several people, back-to-back. The minimum fee is $75, which includes up to 2 hours of shooting in your work place. Travel fees may apply beyond a 50 mile radius of Champaign-Urbana.
Weddings require significant time, preparation, and coordination ahead of the event. My standard fee for a wedding is $450, plus travel expenses should any portion of the event be outside of Champaign, Coles, Douglas, Vermillion, Moultrie or Piatt counties.
A NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of $225 is due at least thirty (30) days in advance of the wedding. Deposits may be paid by personal check , or by credit card. The balance of the deposit is due seven (7) days in advance of the event. DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
Special events, such as dances, business parties, professional societies, birthdays or anniversary parties are all welcome. A minimum fee of $150 for up to two hours applies, payable in advance. Attendees will be able to order prints online following the event.
Industrial and Commercial
For industrial and business purposes, we go over the scope of work, and a custom price is arranged for your particular needs. Depending on the level of work, and copyright privileges you wish to acquire, the price will vary accordingly. Industrial and commercial customers will automatically be granted a limited usage license for up to five (5) images.
Real Estate and Architecture
My fee is based on the size of the property involved if interior work is involved. For exterior-only photographs of homes and small office buildings, the fee is $50, and shoots are scheduled for within one week of receiving your order and pre-payment via Credit Card.
MY FEE DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY PRINTS. ALL PRINTS ARE PURCHASED SEPARATELY. I will edit images to make them suitable for print and make them available online for you to order prints for up to thirty (30) days after you receive your electronic proof sheet as part of the initial fee.
Printing services may be made available after the initial thirty (30) days, subject to my receipt of a $100 relisting fee.
The copyright for Boudoir and erotic photographic work may be granted an exclusive licensed in its entirety for an additional fee.
