TGIW | HOW MUCH DID THAT PHOTO COST?

by Shelley on June 27, 2012

Yes, it’s the million dollar question. How much?

In the next few TGIW’s I’m going to breakdown the costs of some of my favourite photographs.

Below is an epic creative by Matt Barnes. Any fan of Matt’s appreciates his obsessive attention to detail, but what they might not see is the dollar value to each and every little thing he’s strategically placed in his frame. While Matt dreams up his fantastical tale, Tara, his producer and right hand lady helps the dream come true.

For this particular creative Matt had some help from his friends over at Vistek. Also, all his lovely assistants volunteered their time, and doubled up as the talent in this one. Prepare yourself for the Yeti.

ACTUAL EXPENSES
Producer $300
Equipment Rental $400
Yeti $5000
Props $3000
Wardrobe $1000
Location Fee $500
Meals & Craft $550
Auto/Truck Rentals $1200
TOTAL $11950
VOLUNTEERS/DONATED
Equipment $1200
Digital Capture $1000
Assistants $2000
Props $3000
Talent (Were the assistants)
Prop Stylist $3500
Producer $500

WOULD BE TOTAL $23150
