Hi - I'm Joel. I currently live in Cambridge, MA with my wife and two sons.
I've been taking architectural photographs for over 15 years. With degrees in architecture as well as photography, I understand what architectural clients are looking for in a project photo. The majority of my experience has been in shooting residential/ multifamily affordable housing, but I enjoy shooting custom homes and commercial/institutional spaces as well. I generally photograph without assistants, with minimal "staging" and with available/natural light as much as possible - keeping things simple in this way means low overhead for me and low rates for my clients.
My typical rates are $250 for a half-day shoot or $500 for a full day. My day rate includes a few hours of post-shoot photoshop editing. Deliverables typically include a CD/DVD with hi-res and low-res versions of all photos. A copyright-release giving the client unlimited usage rights is provided as well. Sometimes third-parties see the photos and are interested in purchasing rights to certain images, in which case I can provide the photos with usage rights on a per-photo basis.
