Who are Commercial Photographers?
A commercial photographer is a professional photographer who can shoot images that can assist client and companies to sell products or services or advertise events. Professional product photographers or a commercial photographer to be exact can work solo or in teams. At the end their job is to capture a good picture according to demand.
Work of a Commercial Photographer
The first job o a commercial photographer is to pitch a client or a customer. So, creating a list of customers is an important job to do.
Questioning is the key!
The second most important job of a commercial product photographer, is to ask a lot of questions and clear the doubts regarding what a client actually wants. As a commercial product photographer, the better you understand your client, their products, and their goals, the more successful you will be. Once you've managed to land that client, spend some time getting a clear vision of what they want from their commercial images.
You could develop questions that you send to your customers at the start of each project. It should include information such as where the images will be used, the client likes, what their goal is for the campaign or project for which the images will be used, what reaction they want viewers to have to the photos, and other clarifying queries.
While providing services, your client may occasionally provide clear and detailed direction, you will frequently be the creative brains behind your commercial work. For instance, if you specialize in food photography and a new restaurant approaches you to shoot images for an upcoming campaign, you might be in charge of creating the mood of the photo shoot as well as a range of visual concepts from which the client can choose.
When it comes to creating the best photos for your commercial customers, it's critical to remember that the goal is to sell a product or service. Being very clear on your client's goals will help guide how you approach your shoot. For example, if your client wants a very polished, high-end look for their product photos, you might spend some time in the studio setting up the perfect lighting arrangements. If they want smooth lifestyle images for their outdoor fashion brand, on the other hand, you'll probably be outside trying to catch that perfect golden hour glow.

By photo retouching and editing using software like Photoshop, Lightroom or other photo editors.

The main aim of the product photographers is to take care of the services that it provides , keeping in mind the fact that the main motive is to showcase their products and enhance the brand of the company / companies and help in carrying forward their business.
The best way to collaborate with people at this stage is to create photo galleries to showcase the shooting and the kind of service that the company provides. Since, nowadays, in the era of internet, ecommerce website / websites provide shopping service online to the masses in India with the help of sites Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal, Ebay atc.
It is important to have catalogues having the best shots and videos with proper photo retouching and editing to keep up the brand value and also to display the models. This helps the brand to convince customer that it providing quality product or service online in that price.
Following up with the customers
This isn't required, but following up with the client after the shoot is a nice touch if you want to ace your client relations and hopefully land future gigs with existing buyers. You can thank each one for working with you, inquire about the progress of your commercial image rollout, and inform them that you are available for future work.
So, now you might a having a question on your mind that how much amount of money does a commercial photographer/photographers can ask for to provide service i.e. the price. Lets discuss this in details.
Since, a professional commercial photographer is not only associated with photography like other photographers, but also takes care of quality, price, service, editing, they can charge you much. But the price that photographers ask for mainly depends on the skill of an individual photographer.
A product photographer's fees vary greatly in many ways. A Photographer can fix price in a variety of ways, including hourly rates, per day fees, per image price, and price based on the products.
The average price for product photography ranges from 5000 INR to 13000 INR per hour, depending on the photographer's skill and experience. A Photographer, on the other hand, can charge anywhere from 50,00 INR to 1,50,000 INR per day, depending on the level of expertise and service.
Following that, the price is determined per image. Most brands require more than one image for a product, and the average price for each image ranges from 500INR to 25,000INR. Finally, the photographer may charge per product. If all of the shoot products are the same, the photographer can easily come up with a fixed or negotiated price. However, the average rate per product typically ranges between 1000 INR and 6000 INR.
Determining the actual pay rate and price is a complicated process that involves a plethora of variables. An excellent product photographer devotes a significant amount of time to capturing the best shots of products and editing too. However, it is only a minor aspect of his job.
The primary responsibility of a skilled, professional product photographer is to interact with customers (including individual or business or a company seeking service), understand their needs, and then design the shoot accordingly. After that, he delves into the editing process. And, after a long and exhausting journey, the photographer produces the best shots that help businesses grow. All of these processes necessitate a significant amount of time and expertise. As a result, customers end up paying more for high-quality work.
Price on Hourly or Daily work basis
Daily or hourly payments appear to be the most straightforward and straightforward in product photography. However, if you own a business, you must ensure that you hire an efficient product photographer who works on an hourly basis. As any kind of delay or revisions may have an impact on your budget. If you can't find a reliable, professional photographer or if you have a long-term project, it's best to look into different pricing models.
Price on per image basis
As a business owner, this type of pricing may be ideal for you, as in other pricing methods, you may be stuck with the product photographer's high pricing. This is one of the most transparent pricing methods. To get the most out of this payment method, you must be specific about your needs. Making a list of the products whose images you require, decide on the number of photos you require ahead of time, and specify what information you require about the images.
Charging on per product basis
This is also a reasonable pricing option for all e commerce stores that sell a large number of products. This is one of the most common pricing models that includes unlimited product images to help you get the best shots with stunning editing. However, if you have a large quantity of products, this charging method may be prohibitively expensive for you. You can use the per-image pricing method in this case. You can use this pricing method if you have two or three products and want to show the audience a clear picture of the details in the products.
Charge on Project basis
So if you're a photographer looking for a full-time job. This is the best option for you. For example, you may be aware that your client requires a large number of photographs for a specific project. You can work with them on a project pricing basis here.
You can understand the customer ’s demands, the number of images she wants, and the charge for the project based on the quote. This pricing structure enables you to offer discounts to consumers, thereby fostering a positive relationship. Paying per project can also be advantageous for purchasers because there is less pressure on budget planning and they get a clear picture of the work-to-pay ratio.
However, on occasion, all-inclusive charges can reduce the perceived cost of each image, leaving consumer with no incentive to prioritise their needs. As a result, before deciding on a pricing method, clients must assess their needs and the demand for their product or service.
