The e-commerce catalog photography can be divided into 2 types.
The product e-commerce-photography does not need models – and also the retouching and finishing like models images. Therefore the costing is time based. Usually the cost of shooting products exclusive for e-commerce (on any plain background) is approximately RM450- RM900 / per day shoot.
The apparel e-commerce-photography needs some additional labor – like unpacking and finishing the products, Ironing or steaming the garments, removing tags and again gunning it. Also after the shoot, repacking it professionally so that it can be sold like a new product. This process reduces the number of garments shot in one shift compared to the product shoot.
Along with this the apparel shoot needs models as well as model search, searching the right and hard working model is not an easy task even for professionals. For models; shooting for advertising is much more easier and well paid job; AC lounge, plenty of time, 4-5 shots and good budget. But for catalog shoot the model has to change for 50-60 times and pose for 8-10 hours. Therefore there is always a struggle to get a good model for apparel shoot. The professional models get paid anywhere between RM500 to RM1500 depending upon the quality of model. Celebrity models for apparel shoots can demand as much as RM3000 on-wards. Of course it works, you will be selling super fast with good models.
Also the apparel shoot needs good makeup, hair dressing and a stylist, that of course adds up to the cost.
The apparel shoot for apparel e-commerce costs (without model) anywhere between RM870-1200/ per day shoot
