PHOTOGRAPHY CHARGES – WHAT YOU ARE REALLY PAYING FOR

I’ve been doing quite a bit of research on what to charge for my photography.  I finally have good perspective on why a photo session costs so much and why it needs to cost as much.  People don’t understand that the one hour of actual photo taking really breaks down to several hours of photo prep and photo making. 

This article on Caught on Film Photography explains it best.  Price is something to consider and perhaps you will reframe your verdict when you want photographs and memories of a higher quality than what Aunt Judy took with her 5 megapixel point and shoot with half your head cut off in the frame from an angle that makes your chin look like a bullfrog’s.

No offense to you or Aunt Judy – I know her pics were free.  It really boils down to what you want to capture and how much you are willing to pay to capture it.
