ABOUT PHOTO / VIDEO SHOOTS

Simple Shoots are very minimal shoots, usually just the photographer, one model, and a camera. 

Regular Photo or Video Shoot rate applies to most shoots at Alchemical. Meaning you have hair/make-up stylist coming – or are bringing equipment or props – or have more than 2 people total in the room (for Studios B, C, D, or E). 
 

• Please ask the staff when you call if you need clarification. Just let us know exactly what you will be bringing so we can determine the right price category. If it turns out to be a larger shoot when you arrive, we will charge you for the difference.

• View our photography lights for rental on the FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS page.
