PRICING: Assignments and Licensing

KLC fotos works with clients on Paid Assignments and Image Licensing

Paid Assignments

Paid assignments can vary in price depending on the photographer, the time commitment required for photographing and editing, and the intended use of the images. In efforts to be as straightforward as possible, our typical rates can be found below. We encourage photographers and clients to be flexible in negotiating terms, with a realistic approach to the value of quality imagery whether it's for your brand or your personal memories. Pricing is not strictly based on time but also the time and skill set required to create and process the images as well as the intended use of the images. 

Image Licensing

KLC fotos has streamlined the licensing process with price points that benefit the client AND the photographer thanks to our fair use pricing and fair distribution royalty share program. Photographers always receive 50% of the royalty profit and KLC fotos is able to keep a low overhead thanks to automated processing from our website host and partners. Unless otherwise stated, our license agreements are based on one year terms and require a photo credit to the Photographer/KLC fotos when printed or posted. No sub-licensing is granted to client. If you don't see the license you need for a specific project or campaign please email us.
