SkyFly Studios AERIAL Videography PRICING

Each aerial project is unique based upon factors such as, but not limited to, site conditions, complexity of the project, risk to equipment and personnel, and end-use of photographs. Several factors are involved in estimating the cost for a specific job such as distance to travel, complexity of the job, site conditions, risk to equipment, etc. For each job we will need to review your specific needs and provide you with a written estimate of the total costs. We treat each job as if they’re all “Rush” jobs, and will attempt to get out and get them shot as quickly as possible, usually within the next day!

People call us all the time and the first question they ask is “How much do you charge to take an aerial video?”. Well, without knowing any details or specifics of the job, my basic answer is going to be that videography services start at $1499.00 for a basic 1-2 minute aerial video within our normal service area. Once I have time to get the details about what you’re specifically looking for, the price might be lower and it might be higher. If you have several objects or properties you need capturing on the same day, we can discount each job into one flat rate price.

 Unless otherwise agreed upon by SkyFly Studios and the client, all work will be performed CASH ON DELIVERY. Personal and business checks are accepted with proper identification. A 50% deposit is required prior to all jobs being performed. The balance is due upon receipt of invoice or the terms outlined in the contract.

Typically we use a Canon Digital SLR camera which provides us with 18MP images. We will provide you with a preview of the images on site, letting you choose which ones you want to use. We’ll provide minor editing of these premium images including cropping, straightening, and color corrections. We price each job according to your requirements and needs. We don’t bill by the hour or charge extra if the shoot takes longer than necessary.

We will provide you with proofs of these images within 3 to 5 business days in the format agreed upon in the contract. One approved by the customer, the images are delivered in their final format within 5 business days to the client according to the agreement in the contract.

All photographs or video will become your property once payment for the services has been received. SKYFLY STUDIOS reserves the right to use any photograph or video for promotional purposes.

What about bad weather?
Weather is a factor, we don’t like to shoot video or photos on overcast days. Dull light means dull photos. It also goes without saying thatwe don’t photograph when it’s raining or snowing. We prefer sunny days or at least partly sunny days. Winds usually aren’t a problem unless it’s blowing 25mph and gusty, on those days we generally lay up and do some computer work and wait for the winds to lay.We are pretty good at watching the weather forecasts and typically do not schedule something on a bad day.

What if I’m not satisfied?
WE’RE not happy until you’re happy. If we don’t get the shot you want, we’ll reshoot it at no additional cost if it’s within our normal service area. Sometimes the shot a client has in mind just isn’t there or can’t be done. Usually when we discuss the shots you’re looking for I’ll know if it’s doable or not. If I can’t get the video shots you want, then I’ll write it off and we’ll go our separate ways.

Photo Image Editing $85/Hour
Basic retouching to every proof is included in every job we perform. Extensive retouching involves methods to add, modify, or remove photographic content on a larger scale and carries an additional fee. If you have questions about extensive retouching, please inquire to avoid additional charges.

Video Editing $150.00/Hour (2 Hour minimum)
Each job estimate for video will include video editing. If you decide you want additional features or content beyond the original estimate, we typically bill additional work at this rate.

Interactive DVD Menu Design $85.00
