Simon Griffee Visual design, photography, writing, illustration


✏️ Like many human beings I like to communicate in one of our oldest languages, drawing, with one of our great tools, photography. I like to feel and notice the world and time I live in and convey something of this to others through pictures that are often taken, sometimes made, always chosen.

πŸ—½ I am based in the United States and am available for hire for portrait, documentary, and event photography, as well as image editing work such as color grading, styling, and restoration. I am good at pointing the camera and releasing the shutter without hesitation while maintaining a good rapport with people in front of the lens, especially in behind-the-scenes situations.

Past Clients


πŸ’΅ $310 per hour for photography and editing, pro-rated. $110 per file deliverable. Minimum of 2 hours of work with at least half the time dedicated to image editing per project. For example, if photographing for 8 hours, at least another 8-hour day of editing time is required.


πŸ–Ό Selection of high resolution JPEG image files transferred via digital download or physical media (SSD hard disk). ¶ For events this is usually between 50 and 150 images total with high quality image processing including dodging and burning, with 10 to 30 of those in a folder labelled Selects. ¶ A printed book with 20 to 50 photographs and custom graphic design is an option, with around 24–72 extra hours required.

Copyright & Model Releases

πŸ“Έ These vary depending on each project and are indicated in the contract signed before beginning the work. ¶ For events and portraits I generally retain copyright of images and grant clients perpetual reproduction rights in any media. ¶ For sessions involving models and advertising, terms are negotiated to satisfy clients’ needs.
