PHOTOGRAPHY: All photos shot on a Panasonic M43 digital camera with a flash unit attached. Details about the equipment I use and why, and my shooting style, are on the Photography and Video pages.

January 21, 2017: New, simplified pricing. Budget prices are for photos shot in jpeg format without any corrections to the images. Standard prices are for photos shot in RAW or 4K format and corrected for exposure, color balance, etc., and with some retouching. (More about the 4K format below.) These packages are just a starting point, call or email for fine-tuning a package that is right for you. For example you can add a second photographer.

Package Rates for Weddings or Portrait Photography:

Up to 1.5 Hours: $200 budget, no corrections. $300 standard, with corrections.
2 to 3.5 Hours: $400 budget, no corrections. $600 standard, with corrections.
4 to 8 Hours: $600 budget, no corrections. $900 standard, with corrections.

What is 4K format? This is very high quality video shot at 30 frames per second, with the photos later extracted from the video. Not quite as good quality as regular photography (8MP vs. around 16mp for regular photos, and you can't shoot in RAW format), but close. You can make sharp, detailed enlargements up to 11"x14". The advantage is that with shooting 30 frames a second you can capture the perfect moment. A great option for sports pictures, like your kids playing baseball, or for having a very relaxed photo session without formal posing.

Special budget deal for Ewa Beach where I live: Because no travel time is involved, I can do a one hour portrait session on lovely Ewa Beach with Diamond Head in the background, for just $75.

Up to 1.5 hrs:
$150 budget, no corrections.

Photos are delivered either on two nicely labelled DVDs, or in a flash drive, or sent to you digitally with a file sharing service such as "WeTransfer."


VIDEO: All footage shot in High Definition or 4K on Panasonic M43 cameras, the world's best small video cameras, and the Sony FDR X3000 action camera, the world's best 4K action camera! Details on the "Video" page.

A Filipino Christmas Party
 

January 21, 2017: New, simplified pricing. Lowest package prices are for non-edited video, shot in HD or 4K. For the non-edited packages I shoot with ONE camera and do almost no editing, with no titles or music. The edited packages, with titles and music and corrections, are shot with two or three cameras in 4K with the final product either in HD (4K to HD packages) or 4K. These packages are just a starting point, call or email for fine-tuning a package that is right for you. For example you can add a second videographer.

All the packages shot in 4K include FREE photos if desired. I extract 30 photos directly from the video for each hour of the package. The photo quality is nearly as good as with regular still photos! This means you can get excellent enlargements along with the very highest quality video, for the price of video only! More on 4K video below. (You can also get photos extracted from the video if you choose the budget no edit option shot in HD rather than 4K, but photos extracted from HD are not suitable for enlargements, and there is an extra charge.) Check out the samples of the two types of photos, from HD or from 4K, at the bottom of the page.

What is 4K video? This is awesome quality video, with four times the resolution of HD. Because currently there is no easy way to deliver 4K video on disc, there are various options to suit your needs. Most people choose the 4K to HD option, with the finished video as regular HD, either on a flash drive or, better, on a Blu-Ray disc. Although this finished product is not 4K, the quality is clearly better than with video originally shot in regular HD if you view it on a large TV, and more corrections and effects can be applied to the video in the editing process, such as adding in very smooth zooms and pans, without degrading the image quality. The highest quality, 4K to 4K option is delivered on a flash drive, to be played on your 4K smart TV.

VIDEO/PHOTOGRAPHY COMBO RATES, FOR ALL EVENTS INCLUDING WEDDINGS:
For a videographer PLUS a photographer, combine photography and video totals, and subtract $50.

I hope these prices are easy for you to understand. My goal is to keep things simple and flexible, but also to be sure you know exactly what you are getting for what you are paying. All packages can easily be modified to fit your needs. For example, you can choose the budget "no editing" video package and then choose to have it edited later. My emphasis is on value (not many people can beat my $75 deal!), but I can add many other things not shown here such as storybook albums. I also do other services besides shooting photos and video; check the "other services" page. Please call or text me at (808) 721-0149, or email me to discuss.
