Influencer Photography

Are you an influencer?

Looking to update your social media feed with awesome lifestyle photos shot by a professional photographer in the Joshua Tree or Palm Springs area?

It doesn't matter if you have a couple hundred followers or a hundred thousand followers - let me be the one to capture you!

I am an Instagram content creator myself and I understand what goes into successful Instagram influencer marketing. Based in Yucca Valley, California (just outside of Joshua Tree Nataional Park), I am available to get the shots you need and (if needed) provide you with personalized photo editing.

I have been a photographer for 15 years. I have been a content creator on Instagram since 2013. You can check out my colorful Instagram feed on @tomwindeknecht, as well as my travel photographer account @nothingsunknown.

During the shoot, I am happy to share my own proven strategies for landing paid Instagram brand campaigns, too!


Photo Shoot Packages

When you book an photo shoot, you’ll have two package options:

Package #1: $350 per shoot

A 2-hour private desert photo shoot with edited photos included. You can send me sample images ahead of time so I have a feel of the style you’d like the photos shot and edited in. Otherwise, they will be edited to look natural and clean. Photos will be ready within 2-3 days. A $50 deposit is required at booking. Final payment will be due at the end of the photoshoot. Cash payments receive a generous 20% discount*.

Package #2: $230 per shoot

A 2-hour private desert photo shoot with unedited photos. I can upload the files for you after the shoot, or you can supply the SD card and I'll give you the SD card at the end of the shoot to take home. I typically shoot in RAW for the best editing capabilities, which requires an editing program like Lightroom or Photoshop; however, if you’d prefer JPG images just let me know before the shoot. A $50 deposit is required at booking. Final payment will be due at the end of the photoshoot. Cash payments receive a generous 20% discount*.


Note that to receive the discount all shoots must be paid for upfront, though the photo shoot calendar slots can be booked whenever you’d like.

To book multiple shoots, please contact me so I can contact you and process your payment by phone and apply the discount.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What if I want to add more time to my shoot?

No problem! When booking your shoot, just let me know that you want to add an additional hour of shooting time for $100 (unedited shoots) or $150 (edited shoots).

Q: Are the photo shoots fast-paced?

Not really. We’ll have plenty of time to get awesome shots of you in each location. That being said, if you’d like extra time in any one location, I can certainly accommodate. Just note that that means you’ll need to spend less time in another location or purchase an additional hour of shooting time.

Q: How many photos are included in my shoot?

Most two-hour photo shoots end with over 100 shots (sometimes more!) I take plenty of photos to make sure we get the best shots of you. For Package #1 (Edited), you will receive a minimum of 40 professionaly edited photos. For Package #2 (Unedited), you will receive all of the photos taken.

Q: When will I receive my photos and in what format?

You’ll receive your photos within 72 hours of the shoot ending. They’ll be sent via a downloadable digital folder. Note: If you need the photos sooner you’ll have the option to purchase a rush-order.

Q: What is the best time to do the shoot?

Before noon means less crowds and usually better lighting. The afternoons and evenings are also nice for lighting. It just depends on what look you are going for. Either way, you’ll get great shots no matter what time you book for.

Q: What is your cancellation policy?

Appointments that are not cancelled within 24-hours advanced notice will be charged a $50 cancellation fee.

If you need to reschedule please email me at info@tomwindeknecht.com and I can try to accommodate as best as I can.

Q: I still have questions. How can I contact you?

If you have questions about my availability, pricing, or full line of services, please contact me. I look forward to discussing your project!
