Alan Blakely Photography is pleased to offer "locals-only" pricing to Utah architects, designers, engineers, builders and developers!  Also, our unique cost and license sharing program allows you to truly maximize your architectural photography budget with savings of up to 60% when you and other parties share in the cost of your photoshoot.

Rather than have the architect, builder, designer, etc. each pay separately to have a photographer shoot a specific project, we coordinate with all parties involved and create a shot list that serves everyone's unique requirements. This means that you typically receive a larger than normal portfolio of images of your project and save substantially in the meantime.

Our Utah Architectural Photography Rates Include:
•  Image Capture and Basic Image Editing
•  Photographer’s Assistant/Stylist
•  Web Previews
•  FTP File Download
•  Unlimited, Non-Transferable Image Licensing for Your Firm (image usage may not be transferred to a third party)

Each party involved in cost sharing receives a non-transferable license to use the photographs for their own marketing and advertising without any additional usage fees––ever.
