Sports Pricing

With all sports photography services, if the event, awards ceremony, or session is being held in a location that requires me to purchase a temporary business licence, then the cost of that licence will be added to the retainer fee.  The reason is so that I can purchase the business licence ahead of time so that there are no issues during your event, awards ceremony, or session with municipal authorities.

For general sports sessions, if you would like your photos to be taken in both indoor and outdoor settings, then two 1-hour sessions will be booked – one for the indoor session, and one for the outdoor session.  This will be considered as booking a 2-hour session.  Please note that the sessions will not be booked consecutively if it is not feasible due to the distance between the locations of the settings.  Please also note that if either 1-hour session requires more than the allotted time, then extra charges will will apply for each additional hour required at normal rates.

Sporting Events and Awards Ceremonies

If you require me to take photos for a sporting event or an awards ceremony, my rate is $150/hr.  A $100 IMG_0319non-refundable retainer is required immediately upon booking me as your photographer.  Any cancellations or rescheduling requests must be made no later than one (1) month prior to the event or awards ceremony.

For sporting events and awards ceremonies being held outside of Calgary, mileage will be charged per kilometre if I am able to drive there, and will be added to your invoice.  If an overnight stay in your city or town is required, the following additional travel costs will apply:

  • food
  • accommodation

If the event or awards ceremony is being held in a location where I have to fly, then the following travel costs will apply:

  • food
  • accommodation
  • additional travel costs such as plane tickets, cab fare, car rental, parking, and/or gas

League Games

My rate for league games is $125/hr.  If you need me for more than an hour, a $95 non-refundable retainer is required immediately upon booking me as your photographer.  1-hour games require a $60 retainer.  Any league game that is being held outside of Calgary, but within a 3-hour driving radius of Calgary, will be subject to a mileage charge that will be added to your invoice.

Team Photos and Awards Recipient Sessions

For team photos and awards recipients sessions, the session will be for a maximum of two (2) hours, and the following per-image fees will be charged:

  • 1st Photo: $125
  • Additional Photos: $100 each

Furthermore, with team photo sessions, if you would like player portraits to be taken as part of the same session, then the rates for these photos would be the same as individual portraits – that is, $75 for the first photo, and $25 for each subsequent photo.  In this case, where both team photos and player portraits have to be taken in the session, the time required may go over two (2) hours.

An $85 non-refundable retainer is required immediately upon booking the session.  Any requests for rescheduling or cancelling your session must be made no later than 48 hours prior to your appointment.  Except under special circumstances, requests to cancel or reschedule the session that are made within 48 hours of the appointment will be rejected.
