The average cost of videography services is around $70/hr, but prices may still change depending on factors such as the skill level of the videographer or the kind of equipment used. Generally, videography rates range from$50/hr to as high as $100/hr.
Cost of Hiring a Wedding Videographer
Milton of Mrk Photography & Videography says that a standard 10-hour wedding videography package costs around $1,400. The coverage is done by one videographer using two video cameras, but the client can request for two videographers. This should be enough to cover the preparation, ceremony, photo shoot, and reception, plus a short highlights video of the whole day.
For this price, a client will receive 5 copies of a dual-layer DVD with a menu system, and the videos are given in a presentation case.
Peter paid $400 for 2 hours of video coverage for a company function in New South Wales. The videography package included some basic editing as well.
On the other hand, Vidya from New South Wales spent $480 for 3 hours of video coverage for a wedding.
Why project type and details matter in video production
Videography services cost around $363.90. This rate, however, typically only includes a basic package for a job that’ll last for about a couple of hours.
A simple wedding videography package, on the other hand, will cost you about $381.91. If you want a personalised wedding video plus additional services, businesses may charge you a higher price.
Three factors that play important roles in producing total cost
In order to properly estimate how much you will spend on hiring a videographer, you need to consider the factors that affect videography costs. These can include the following:
Quality of equipment
High-end cameras, editing software, microphones, and other special equipment are expensive. You will need to pay more if you choose videographers who use high-quality equipment in their job.
Skill and experience
If you wish to have fancy features on your video such as animation, you’ll need to hire a professional who is skilled in that specific area. You may also need to pay more for special effects.
Length of the video
The longer a video is, the longer it takes to finish the shoot and editing. Because of this, videography costs will naturally increase.
Why you must consider “where” you hire your videographer
The average cost of videography services can vary a lot depending on what state you’re in. For instance, videographers in Victoria charge the lowest average rate at approximately $50/hr. Meanwhile, in New South Wales, the average cost of videography services is about $70/hr.
If you’re in Queensland, you can expect to pay an average price of around $100/hr for a professional videographer’s service. When the hours add up, these rate differences will definitely matter a lot.
