In a continuous rush toward “amazing deals”, we sometimes fill our lives with unwanted things instead of unfading moments.
I've decided to write this post to help you understand what a photography price consist of. I've meet so many people asking me: How much the print cost you? or How come I pay the session fee and I receive nothing? You are receiving a professional service, same as legal service, medical service, consulting etc.
So, a briefly explanation is this:
1. The session fee include: investment in high quality equipment, softwares and speciality training, insurance, taxes, legal counseling and accountancy, website and hosting, portfolio (albums, photo boxes or wall art that I'm showing you), exhibitions, fairs, business meetings, advertising, travelling, meeting a client two or three times, many working hours and, finally, the photo session.
2. Product price include: print (depending on the products you choose, size and type of paper), my time spent editing your photos and artistic value (which is what I ultimately earn).
In the end, my dear customer, only you can decide the value of a photography. Only you can value how much that memory means to you or your family!
