What is Dagmar Studios?

We’re the full-service creative and production house of Helena Price. We produce great content for less than traditional agencies. 

 

Are you taking projects right now?

Yes, always and forever. Get in touch.

 

So.. what do you guys... do?

We specialize in making beautiful photos and other visual media for you. More specifically, we handle the entire creative and production process of photo/multimedia projects from start to finish. We do all of this at a price that's cheaper than traditional agencies.

Our projects range from the super simple (i.e., exec portraits) to the super complex (i.e., a multimedia photo + video shoot employing multiple photographers in multiple countries). We handle budgets ranging from a few thousand to a few hundred thousand.

 

Who is we?

Dagmar Studios is led by photographer/director Helena Price and an amazing crew. Read more about us here.

 

Why should I work with you guys?

Because planning a creative campaign is hard, and we’re really good at what we do.

We have over a decade of experience developing visual content and creative campaigns, both on the brand side and the production side. We are nimble and can produce top-quality, commercial-grade work without traditional bloated advertising budgets. We know how to work efficiently and save you money.

We have access to some of the best talent around thanks to years of relationship building in the creative and tech industries. We build the best team for the job so you don't have to.

We’ve worked with some of the biggest companies in the world (check out our client list here) and our projects have been featured on ABC, CNN, Oprah Magazine, TIME, Newsweek, Fast Company and more. We know how to make work that people talk about.

We are fast, thorough and really just fun to work with. We love what we do.

 

How can you save us money vs. other commercial photographers and advertising agencies?

To sum it up, we've cut out all the middle men and old-school overhead. 

We don't have a fancy office or tons of full-time employees. We work direct with clients instead of through agents who tack on referral fees. We don't fly business class (though sometimes we go for the emergency exit row). We know how to be scrappy and cut unnecessary production costs without compromising the work. 

 

What if I'm an ad agency? 

It would be smart for you to hire us. We'll do a better job and stretch your budget further than other photographers/producers.

 

So what do you cost then?

Depends! As mentioned above, we handle budgets ranging from a few thousand to a few hundred thousand, with the majority of our projects falling in the $20-80k range. Get in touch and we can tell you what we can do within your budget.

 

I only need a few exec portraits, not a big multimedia campaign. Is that something you do?

Yep! We do small jobs too. Get in touch.

 

How much do I need to have planned out before I come to you?

Ideally you’ll know a basic objective or problem your business is trying to solve, and you’ll have an idea of what kind of budget you have. From there, we can explore different creative approaches and production estimates.

 

I know exactly what I want to do for my campaign. Can you execute my vision?

Yep! That approach is fine too.

 

Where are you based?

We’re based in the San Francisco Bay Area, but we work on projects everywhere. Just in the last year we’ve produced campaigns in Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Toronto, Ottawa, London, and Tel Aviv. Don’t be scared of long distance.
