Commercial Photography in Manchester – food and drink

As the wedding photography season starts to get a bit quieter we ‘keep out hand in’ by taking on more commercial photography work in the Manchester and Cheshire area. (Our camera’s are very expensive, so they need to be kept working!) Yesterday saw us at The Egerton Arms, Chelford, Cheshire where we took some food and drink photographs for use on the pubs forthcoming new website and publicity material. This is a completely different discipline for us, but the experience comes in very handy when we have to photograph the cake and table settings at weddings. I am sometimes asked why commercial photography is cheaper than wedding photography. The answer is – it’s not! The hourly rate charged seems low (about £100 per hour) but with commercial photography a fee is also paid to the photographer every time an image is used. So once the photographer has taken the picture he earns money from it’s use, sometimes for many years. With wedding photography, a ‘one time fee’ is paid to us and the copyright is given to the bride and groom.
