A difference is made between business and private individual rates (see further down).
Business or corporate rates in the Netherlands
Business rates are derived from the richtprijzen fotografie 2010. The rates are competitive, not higher nor lower than average but my quality is certainly higher than average.
The rate is mainly determined by the preparation & shoot (duration) and by the use of the photographic material (license):
- Half a day: 660 euro
- Whole day: 1220 euro (exclusive VAT)
This applies to photos use within the Netherlands. Within Europe (+100%) and outside Europe (+ 200%).
In addition travel expenses of 0,42 cents per kilometer.
Digital image manipulation
Traditional photographic adjustments (adjusting contrast, luminosity, color tone and cropping) are included. Alteration of shape, form, texture or local color is digital image manipulation. These are charged extra by the hour.
For example making somebody slender or removing scratches from a watch or jewelry).
Although I’m quite capable to manipulate/photoshop images I sometimes prefer to work with other companies who are specialized in these skills (like ‘Magic Group’ in Amsterdam).
The usage of the photographic work
The photos are always for personal or company use and may not be resold. Attribution (naamsvermelding) is always required (see the Terms and Conditions/Algemene Voorwaarden van de FotografenFederatie, filed with the District Court of Amsterdam # 84/2011. You can find them here).
Sympathetic business projects
Sympathetic projects can be carried out for less money if you have a good reason. For example:
- Startup companies with a solid business plan, or
- A photografic action against a pig flat or other animal suffering, or
- In exchange for photos I can make use of your services
Tempt me, challenge me!
Business or corporate rates - rest of the world
Available upon request.
The rate for private individuals are cheaper. These projects end up in the 'slow lane', corporate business always in the 'fast lane'.
Prices are sometimes experienced as steep which I do understand. On the other hand also have steep expenses (investments in cameras, repair costs, software & computer trouble, lenses etc).
The rates for private individuals (with the exception of the Bride Photography, see below) start from 250 euro (including VAT/BTW). Sympathetic private projects can be carried out for less money if you have a very good reasons and always in the 'slow lane'
Individual portrait or family portrait
I can make a proposal or together we work out an idea. (black/white or color, what is the special purpose for the photo, for who, any size already in mind? Inspired by the old Masters etc)

I do max 4 weddings a year.
Even though I did get a Honorable Mention from the Dutch Bride Photo Award I do max four weddings a year. There is a separate website in Dutch for wedding photography. Like the corporate rate, the rate for wedding photography are in line with the market (2011). For more information go to bruid.harriedefotograaf.nl
