Headshots, product, team and other photography will be free at event. Video pitches, team shots and other styles will be free to shoot basic video, but depending on style, length, post production and delivery will cost $50 and up, this is discounted. All prices will be negotiable, including bartering (we are looking for talent to add to the team) and release rights - etc.
