Overview | Deposit & Pricing | Clients


A $100 - $500 deposit is required to hold the date of your photo shoot and ensure that BSD Photography can’t be booked by anyone else on that day. For this reason, all deposits are non-refundable. If a shoot is cancelled by BSD Photography, we will refund the deposit in full and take $100 off the price of your rescheduled shoot.

*Price Guidelines

Every client is unique and we treat each potential job individually and provide a unique quote for each job. However, we have included some general guidelines to provide some idea of the cost of booking BSD Photography.

For all of BSD Photography’s photo shoots, the client will receive disks of all of the untouched shots (with no watermark) as full size files along with a password to this site, where they can review their photos and select five photographs to be professionally touched up. Additional retouching above five images will be performed at $50 per image.

  1. Commercial Photo Shoots. Pricing varies with each project, but a typical price plan would start at $950 for a half day (4 hours) and $2,400 for a full day (8+ hours). Commercial rates apply to photographs being used to generate direct income as in advertisements, annual reports, brochures and other marketing material.
  2. Individual Photo Shoots. This is the best package for models, actors/actresses, fighters, corporate headshots or general portraits. These photo shoots start at $500, last approximately 2 hours and include at least 2 different looks with natural light and/or studio strobes.
  3. Glamour/Fitness Model Portfolio Photo Shoots. This is the best choice for fitness competitors, models and athletes looking to take their careers to the next level. Pricing starts at $850 and include a professional stylist and make-up artist. Due to a unique relationship with Vex Magazine, select shots may qualify for inclusion in Vex Magazine features and may be featured on BSD Photography’s website.
  4. Digital Stock Images. Intended for use on websites and other electronic media, pricing for digital stock images varies greatly depending on use. For a single image to be used in a trade show, in a PowerPoint or on a website, the typical fee would be around $250.
  5. Prints of images on BSD Photography’s website:
    8”×10” – $100
    11”×14” – $150
    16”×20” or 16×24 – $200

    Framing is not included, but can be included as a package price.
  6. * Travel and expenses extra. Mileage is charged at $1.25/km. Accommodations and meals are expensed back at cost. All travel outside of a 500km radius of Calgary requires flights, accommodations, and all extra expenses covered upfront. Quotes will be issued for all distance shoot requests.

    * Image touch-ups start at $50/image for the web, and $100/image for magazine quality. Price per hour is $100.
