DTX Media Pricing and Rates

Along with creating the best content possible, our goal is to be as transparent, fair and competitive with our pricing as possible to earn your trust and repeat business. Unlike other studios who charge low to shoot and hold content hostage, we never practice ‘bait and switch’, which means you will always receive and have a right to the full resolution digital files and content that you paid for, with no additional costs. (The only exceptions being the price of a hard drive and shipping in some circumstances and a marginal archival fee for anything over a year old). While these numbers should give you a great starting point on your budget, they do not account for any unknown factors and or requests. These prices are for work inside the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex, but we are happy to accommodate travel. We ask that you please contact us for an exact quote.
