Why aren’t B-Squared Images rates published?

B-Squared Images provides its customers a tailored experience, which may vary from customer to customer; one customer’s requirements may cost more or less than another customer.   Unlike “brick-and-mortar” studios, with more consistent pricing, B-Squared Images offers more flexibility and personalized service.  With brick-and-mortar studios, there is little or no prep time, preset lights, a finite number of backgrounds and settings, and their staff photographers coach their clients in a standard reputare of poses; therefore, their prices are traditionally much lower.  Most often, customers are provided with photographs that look the same as other clients…  Kind of like most hamburgers look and taste the same at McDonalds…  Inexpensive and consistent!

 

Our pricing is reflective of the needs of our customers; therefore, if you’re interested in using us, you’ll have to contact us and tell us what you’d like to achieve in a shoot.  After all of your requirements are gathered, a fixed-price quote will provided to you.
