In some occasions of product photography an outsourced post-processing service will be used for reasons of speed and efficiency. The ratio photography hours - post production hours will vary per type of photography. Below, we wil give you some guidance on this per category.

Productphotography is done in the controlled environmemnt of STUDIOVHF's Photographic studio near Zwolle in The Netherlands. We work according to the latest standards regarding colormanagement and with calibrated high-end monitors. Colour correction and retouching will be done in-house. Some other post-production techniques is outsourced to specialist suppliers but remains under mangement of STUDIOVHF. The ratio photography hours - post production is in the region of 1:0.5 and 1:1.
Interior photography at high standard is probably more time consuming than expected. We can do 2 medium sized projects in a day when they are in close proximity. Depending on the local situation we use a combination of analogue (the adding of flashlight to a space) and digital techniques in post-processing (DRI or Dynamic Range Increase). This to control contrast differences and colour temperature. This means that the ratio photography hours - post processing hours is relatively high, 1:1 or 1:2.
With corparate photography or reportage on location as well as with most editorial work, the ratio between photography hours - post processing hours is approximately 1:1,5.
As with all our business affairs we deal in an open and transparent way and have many long standing relationships with both clients and suppliers. We respect and adhere to the Dutch and International copyright-laws and use the standard terms and conditions of the Dutch professional Photographers association, DuPho.
