voiceover rates

How much does it actually cost to work with me?

Voiceover rates are priced using a Basic Studio Fee, which covers 1 hour of my time spent recording, editing and preparing the script before our session.

For most work, you then pay a usage fee. This varies depending on the overall usage, scale of your campaign, and the context and purpose of the recording.

Usage fees are per production, but you can record for multiple productions in one studio session.

To keep things simple, I’ve added my starting rates below.

some key points

  • Voiceover rates vary greatly due to usage, context, scale and purpose. But I’m here to guide you through your quote, so you understand exactly what you’re paying for.
  • Most quotes with my clients are on a case-by-case basis. I work with you to find the best option for us both, without undercutting the industry standard rates of pay.
  • These rates include studio hire of my broadcast quality recording booth and studio space.
  • If you have a specific budget in mind, please get in touch. We can work together to see if we’re a good fit.

Why Have I Created This Rate Guide?

Voiceover pricing is a bit of a minefield, and I want to demystify it for you. I also know how tricky it can be to budget for productions when you don’t have an accurate estimate of costs for services. This serves as a great reference for estimating costs, before you’ve even reached out to me.


Let’s keep this simple. If I make a mistake, I re-record this for free. If you change the script after I have recorded it, adding in new lines or rewriting the entire piece, you’ll need to cover the BSF for the time I spend re-recording.

These cases are rare though, as I always provide multiple styles of recording in my initial session with you, so you’ve got options to play with in the edit.


My payment window is within 14 days. If you can only pay via PayPal, this will require an additional 6% fee on top of your original quote. If your payment is scheduled to take longer than 30 days, this must be agreed upon in advance.
