Festival of Colors
The Krishna Temple's Festival of Colors was a lot of fun! You may download web-sized images for free (1024 pixels/side max, about the size of a standard computer screen, not good for printing). Be sure to caption your images with "www.dilvie.com" if you upload them to websites like MySpace.

We had so much fun at Noah's last time around, we decided to do it again. This time around there was a very cute baby to photograph. I did a lot of moody low-key shots with dramatic shadows this time, but I still show off my stylistic range with some normal exposures, and a couple of bright, sunny photos. I think it's important to cover a range of styles during a photo shoot. You never know what magic you could be missing if you always shoot straight (normal exposure).

Get Paid to Refer Friends!
Refer a friend, and I'll pay you a 15% commission on the sale, and every print sale it generates for the first month! Everybody wins. Your friend gets a great photographer, and you get a little richer!
Everybody knows somebody who's graduating, having a family reunion, having a baby, visiting on vacation, looking for portraits, or looking to create a brochure or mailer.
Say your sister is getting married. She is on a tight budget, and can only afford about $300 in shooting time. (That's $45 in your pocket.) Now consider that family members will want to buy prints, and her lawyer aunt decides to spring for a nice, professional photo album as a wedding present. Print orders total $600, and the wedding album adds another $1,000. You earn $285, and your family will have beautiful photos to keep the day fresh in their memories for a lifetime.
Here's how it works: Just tell your friend about me (be sure you tell them to mention that you sent them), and then email me their name and contact info. I won't contact them unless they contact me, first, and I will never share this info with anybody for any reason.
Now that's a great deal!

No matter what field you're in, chances are, you could use some current headshots from a professional photographer. Corporate executives, business people, actors, models, or professionals in any field can use headshots to enhance resumes, provide visual flair for website biographies, and much more. Even if your only bio is on MySpace, how cool would it be to have the best looking profile image around?
The basic headshot package costs only $150 and includes:
- A variety of web ready sizes are included. Prints are available for a small fee, ranging in size from 4"x6" to wall-covering canvases.
- Royalty-free use for website bios, portfolios, MySpace, and event flyers. If you need a particular size for a print flyer, I can supply it for you.
- Magazine / Newspaper editorial use (press-releases are okay)
- Magazine / Newspaper advertisements
- Commercial direct mailers / brochures
- Any other advertising / commercial use that isn't explicitly granted above
I will retain all commercial rights to the images, but if you wish to use your headshots in corporate marketing materials, advertising, or editorial projects, additional uses can be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
Musicians / DJs / Bands: Sign a model release form and save $50!

|Concert / Rave Package||$250|
Unless otherwise noted in writing, these license terms apply.
Pricing for photography generally falls into two different categories:
- Shooting Fees / Expenses, and...
- Use Fees
Shooting fees pay for the photo shoot, and cover expenses like equipment costs and overhead. Shooting fees do not cover extra expenses, such as pay for models, makeup artists, pre-production days, set design and construction, or catering.
Shooting fees range from $150 - $500 per photo shoot, depending upon the complexity of the job. Shorter time blocks do not always translate into smaller shooting fees. After all, it takes a great deal of skill and ingenuity to create a great photograph under intense time pressure. You don't pay for time, you pay for creative vision, and the experience to transform that vision into powerful imagery.
Certain uses are free, including web-sized images for portfolios, MySpace profile pages, and personal (non-commercial) use under these legal terms. If you use an image for free on your website or MySpace profile, you must link to my site, or mention the URL. Here is the proper form of attribution:
Copyright Eric Hamilton, www.dilvie.com
Fees for other uses vary depending on what the photos are for, and how you intend to use them. I always retain copyrights. Every commercial use of an image (even if it's the same image) requires purchase of an image use license. Copyright violators will be subject to prosecution under international copyright laws. All commercial image use must be cleared in advance!
Commercial Uses for Commissioned Photos
Commercial use prices are based on the market average, utilizing the latest prices from an industry standard database that tracks average rates by geographic region. The Plus System is used to come to an agreement that clearly spells out your use needs so that you can be sure that the contract covers everything you need it to cover, and that the pricing for that coverage is arrived at fairly.

New Photos - Karen
Tuesday, March 6, 2007
I went to visit my cousin yesterday, and came back with some great images. Bryan and I stopped at Salt Lake Coffee Break on the way home, and bumped into somebody we met at Candice's dorm. What a strange world. He was hanging out with a girl who works at the Coffee Break. She photographs very well, too.

Dilvie Music in Audiobook Podcast
Photo from the U of U Med Student Date Auction. It looks kindof noir, right?
I just thought I'd let you know that I've been using your track "Tribute" (fantastic piece of music!) for my podcasted novel "How to Disappear Completely" at http://kilbeysalmon.blogspot.com. I meant to let you know earlier, sorry! I've had lots of queries and questions about the music as everyone seems to love it.
Neat. I'm going to try to keep track of these things. If you're using my music in one of your projects, let me know, and I'll drop you a link like this. - Eric

Med Students Date Auction
The University of Utah Med Student Date Auction was a blast! Click the photo below to see the full set on Flickr.
P.S. My brand new SB-600 flash was damaged during the shooting. I did this shoot pro-bono to support the cancer research fundraiser. If you would like to contribute to the repair or replacement of the flash, I would deeply appreciate it. Please use the paypal button in the sidebar.
