I create photography for companies at no charge.

Exclusive and Royalty-free.

No Shooting Fee & No Expenses

I create new photography for companies without charging a shooting fee or billing for expenses. Simply put, I produce photo sessions and then present finished, retouched and reproduction-ready photographs for purchase consideration. These photographs are created without any requirement or any obligation for you to buy.

If you see a photograph from your session that perfectly suits your needs, you can buy an instant royalty-free download for a lifetime of unlimited use. Purchased downloads are exclusive to your company and are priced at $900 per photograph. This means that you can choose to buy whenever you are ready with no pressure, no deadline and absolutely no obligation.

The absence of a buying requirement eliminates financial risk. Selecting from finished high-resolution retouched images removes creative uncertainty. You get exactly what suits your needs instantly in an efficient and cost-effective way. Again, there is no photography creative fee or day rate, no crew wages, no retouching fees and no charge for travel.
