Pricing

The reason why we think "previews first" is the best option:
Through continuous and open communication, we work closely with our clients for the best possible result. We know that quality, speed and budget is key factors so we always tailor our service for the specific needs. Those specific needs can only be taken into consideration when getting to know the images, the context of usage and the client's style better. Every images needs another specific amount of retouching and a different style.
Based on the hourly rate the cost estimate will be a fixed price. The price normally includes one feedback round.

Price estimates for future projects are possible by sending similar reference images (moodboards), your previous work (website link) and as much further project information as possible.
