Cost-Sharing Partnership

Many hands go into the work of designing, building and furnishing a new home. We offer a cost-sharing incentive for businesses to save on photography by sharing the cost with other businesses that worked on the same project.

How it works

A 35% surcharge is added for each additional party/business wanting to use the images for commercial use (aka promote their product or service). The total cost is then divided by the number or parties/businesses sharing the cost.


Janet the architect hires Swift Studio for a photo shoot of a new home she designed. Her project estimate is $500. Janet asks the builder, the interior designer and the landscape architect if they want to also purchase photos to use for promoting their businesses. They all say yes. A 35% surcharge ($175) is added for each of the three additional businesses (and additional $525). The new total is $1,025, but after dividing that total between the four businesses, the amount paid by each business is only $256.25. Swift Studio gets paid more for providing rights of use to multiple businesses and each businesses spends less by partnering together to save.
