Contract Photography Packages

John Hultgren Photography is available for contract photo assignments. Our specialty is emergency medical services and public safety photography because, with 50 years of experience in public safety, we really know that industry. Photos are perfect for display in an office and for use in promotional material, conference booth displays, organization calendars, brochures, flyers, web sites, social media, and press releases.

Info! We do not have the equipment or the experience to do wedding or studio portrait photography and you will be more satisfied working with a professional photographer who specializes in those areas.

We are happy to discuss your event to evaluate whether we are a good fit for your needs, so please contact us.

John Hultgren Photography offers full-day or half-day packages on a "Per-Image Pricing" model, including travel expenses. For a full-day assignment you agree to purchase a limited commercial photo license for four photographs. For smaller projects that take about half-a-day to complete, you agree to purchase licenses for two photographs. Of course, if you are happy with our work you can purchase additional commercial photo licenses and prints to display. This model reduces your risk and rewards us if you are happy with our work.

You may order prints from us in a variety of styles and sizes to display however you wish without purchasing a commercial photo license. Prints purchased from us do not require a license and may not be copied, reproduced, or redistributed. To make your own prints, or to redistribute the photo on a web site or in promotional material, you must purchase the graphic file. Graphic files are sold with a commercial photo license and are available in four resolutions (sizes) and can be downloaded immediately after your purchase.

Commercial Photo License

You can purchase individual photographs from your event as a digital download with a commercial photo license, which allows you to use the photo for business purposes subject to licensing restrictions. For packages that include digital photos with a commercial photo license, you will receive a coupon code after post-production is complete that will allow you to download the number of photos included in your package at the full "Original Image" size at no additional charge. After your coupon has been used you can purchase additional photos with licenses if desired.

Info! You need a digital download with a commercial photo license to redistribute a photo (such as on the Internet or in a brochure), or to make your own prints. You can redistribute the photo an unlimited number of times and make an unlimited number of prints. You do not need a digital download with a commercial photo license to order prints from us for display.

A digital download is simply a copy of the original image file, sized in one of four ways. Digital downloads are available immediately after purchase. You should purchase the largest size that you expect to use (you can always print smaller photos than the file resolution, but printing larger than the recommended resolution will produce unsatisfactory results). You are purchasing a commercial photo license with each digital file purchased (please see the explanation above).

When post-production is complete we will provide you with an Internet address (URL) to an on-line hidden photo album. This album is accessible to anyone with the URL. When you view a photo that you wish to purchase, simply select the "Buy" button and navigate to "Downloads". Select "Commercial Photo License" and selct the file size desired. We will provide you with a coupon code to use at checkout for the number of "Original Image" files included with your package. Please note that this coupon code can only be used to purchase "Original Image" sized files to download.

We offer four file sizes (with different resolutions) for digital downloads:

  • Web Size: A "Web Size" image is roughly 640 x 480 pixels in size, or 0.3 megapixels. This is great for web sharing on your Internet site or on social media sites. While computer monitors vary, the most common desktop and notebook computer monitor width is 1366 pixels, so the width of a landscape-oriented "web size" photo on a common desktop or notebook computer monitor would extend across approximately half the page.
  • Low-Res 1Mpix: A "Low-Res 1Mpix" image is roughly 1 megapixel in size, approximately 816 x 1224 pixels, which is big enough to print at 8" x 12" with satisfactory results.
  • Hi-Res 4Mpix: A "Hi-Res 4Mpix" image is 4 megapixels. The Hi-Res 4 MP file is twice the size of a 1Mpix file, approximately 1632 x 2448 pixels. It’s big enough to make a 16" x 20" print with satisfactory results. This size that allows for quality printing at most reasonable sizes.
  • Original Image: An "Original image" is the original 36.3 megapixel image that we captured, identical in every way to the file that we use to produce our prints. Our original images are 7360 x 4912 pixels which allows for quality printing at very large sizes.
  • Web Size: $25
  • Low-Res 1Mpix: $50
  • Hi-Res 4Mpix: $75
  • Original: $100
Photographic Prints

You may order high-archival-quality photographic prints directly from your photo album (accessed with the URL that we will provide to you after post-production is complete). You do not need a commercial photo license to order and display a print but you may not copy and reproduce the print because it is protected by Federal Copyright Law.
