ESPERANZA STUDIOS IS A “CASH BUSINESS”, THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS OUR RATES ARE AS LOW AS THEY ARE. PAYMENT IS DUE AT THE BEGINNING OF THE BOOKING. ESPERANZA STUDIOS RENTAL AGREEMENT AND LIABILITY RELEASE MUST BE SIGNED BEFORE THE BOOKING.

BASIC STUDIO TIME; MINIMUM $125.00
This charge is for a small shoot, one photographer, model(s), make-up
artist, assistant. Larger shoots with more production personnel will be at a
“per-quote” basis. Non-production person should be kept to a minimum.

The basic charge is for up to (3) three hours time. After that it is $25.00 an hour,
$15.00 up to one-half hour or any fraction there-of, and $25.00 an hour for any
fraction of time over one-half hour.
I am generally in the studio 1/2 hour before a booking (not guaranteed), if you get
there, that is “free time”.
If you can be packed and exiting the studio in fifteen (15) minutes, you may shoot right
up to the end of the booked time, without additional charge for your “tear-down”

THERE IS A $100.00 SECURITY AND CLEANING FEE, IF THERE IS NO DAMAGE OR APPRECIABLE CLEAN-UP, THIS WILL BE FULLY REFUNDED.

BASIC: PAYMENT OF $200.00 CASH MUST BE MADE AT THE TIME
THE BOOKING WAS SCHEDULED TO BEGIN. FAILURE TO
MAKE THIS PAYMENT AS SCHEDULED MAY JEOPARDIZE
THE BOOKING PROCEEDING.

YOU ARE NOT HIRING ME AS AN ASSISTANT, I MAY ASSIST IN THE MOVEMENT OF PROPS OR SETS, OR LIGHTS (ESPERANZA STUDIOS) EQUIPMENT, BUT IF YOU REQUIRE EXTENSIVE SET PREPARATION, BRING HELP OR BE PREPARED TO SPEND SOME TIME.

DAY RATE (10) TEN HOURS: $250.00

NOTHING GETS DRAGGED ACROSS THE FLOOR!
OR ANYTHING THAT COULD POTENTIALLY CAUSE
DAMAGE.

Additional lights are available as follows:

PHOTOGRAPHERS NEED TO BRING THEIR OWN “AC” TYPE SYNC CORD FOR USE WITH ESPERANZA STUDIOS SPEEDATRON LIGHTS

If a photographer brings his own lights, there is no charge to use Esperanza Studios
extension cords.

If a photographers electrical needs are greater than 110 volts, he must supply a
“qualified” technician, to tap the electrical panel for greater current needs. The
owner reserves the right to determine the qualification of the technician.
This will result in a significant surcharge in the rental rate.
