Here is some basic information on the types of services I can provide for you. Having worked primarily with non-profit organizations, I also recognize that a one-size-fits-all approach to project scope and pricing doesn't work for every client. If you are interested in working with me in a way that doesn't fit into what I describe here, please feel free to contact me to discuss your unique needs and budget.

News Events
Less Than One Hour: $150 for non-profit and advocacy clients / $200 for commercial clients
1-2.5 Hours: $200 for non-profit and advocacy clients / $300 for commercial clients
Half Day Events**: $400 for non-profit and advocacy clients / $600 for commercial clients
All Day Events**: $600 for non-profit and advocacy clients / $1000 for commercial clients
I will photograph your event, including principal speakers and performers, crowd candids, establishing shots, and crowd panoramas as appropriate.
I will assist your media team in pitching your photos to media outlets and ensuring proper rights clearance for quick publication.
I will provide a rush selection of professionally-edited photos that tell the story of your event for social media use immediately after the event concludes*
*Rush photos for social media use will require the event host to provide an internet connection and a workstation where I can set up my laptop to process photos during the event
**Half day events are up to 4 hours. All day events are up to 8 hours. Events lasting longer than 8 hours will be charged an additional hourly rate of $75 per hour for non-profits and $100 per hour for commercial clients.
Parties, Fundraisers, And Gala Events
Please contact me directly for a quote, as coverage needs may vary from client to client. Services may include: photographing dinner speakers, candid photos of guests, and posed/arrival photos of guests with or without a backdrop, photographing dance floor action.
Headshots & Portraits
Packages are available starting at $150, $200, an $300. See here for more information on headshots packages: http://srwkennedy.com/portraitpackages

TV Ad Shoot Photos
$500 half day (up to 4 hours) / $1000 full day. Travel and equipment expenses are billed to the client.
Often it can be the most efficient use of everyone's time if a photo shoot operates in conjunction with a TV shoot. In these instances, the schedule, the stories you want to tell, and the recruitment of real people for testimonials is mostly dictated by the demands of your TV advertising plan.
I will coordinate with your TV ad director to work within their production plan to provide you with a series of photos that complement what your TV crew is shooting for your ads. That way, when you introduce your TV and online video campaigns, you will have the image assets to run parallel mail and online messaging.
Special Assignment Work
Sometimes you may need a very specific image or series of images for a project that is unique to a particular message or mail campaign you want to run. Please contact me to discuss your project so that I can provide a quote that suits your unique needs.
Video
Video projects can vary greatly in scope and production costs, from a simple shot of somebody speaking straight to camera, to an on-the-road short documentary. If you have a video project in mind, please contact me so we can discuss your unique needs.
Will I work For Free?
Short answer: No.
While I am generally opposed to de-valuing creative work for both myself and for the industry overall, that doesn’t mean there aren't opportunities for collaboration that can be truly beneficial to me at little or no financial cost to you. If you have a project that might be personally interesting to me or that presents realistic, tangible business opportunities (and no, exposure to your vast instagram following doesn't count) then please reach out to me with a serious proposal.

However, if you want work done in exchange for nothing other than "exposure" or "a chance to build your portfolio" I'm probably not your guy. There will be no shortage of other people with cameras out there who will be happy to give you images for free. Just remember that you usually get what you pay for.
