I like reading in PetaPixel the different perspectives photographers and their customers have on the value of photography. It reminds me that customers want everything free, fast and better.
Our concept of value for various kinds of services comes in the context of a global economy where there is not only continual downward pressure on prices but also the desire for faster, better and free is not so unrealistic.
What isn’t considered, though, are the unseen factors like total costs of doing business, equipment investment, pre-event prep and post-event editing. I like that this photographer took a snark-free approach by rationally laying out the expenses faced by photographers.
