I have buried myself in the office the last 2 days trying to get caught up on a few things. One of the things I’ve been working on is my new product and pricing guide (still not done, but it’s getting there). I can’t tell you how many times during any given week I receive the question “How much for the disk?” I’ve addressed this several times in the past and there is a great article that was just posted called “Choose Art” found at http://www.bowesphotography.ca/blog/2012/04/29/blog-carousel-prints-or-files/.
If you want to purchase the disk because you want to be in control of printing the images please ask yourself why you’re choosing a professional photographer in the first place. It is our job to do the best work for you, starting with a consultation to make sure your session runs as smoothly as possible and ending with handing you archival quality portraits. If you want it for security to know you’ll always have access to the images in case of a worst case scenario that I understand and is the reason I’ve made some major changes.
With that being said I have decided to add some digital collections into the new pricing guide. I wish everyone chose art and not a disk that will be buried under dust and out of date in a few short years, but the reality is it’s not what people want. These may change over the next year or so as I figure out what works and what doesn’t, but for now this is what I think will work best for my business and my clients.
The digital collections now available:
1. $395 5 digital files
2. $795 10 digital files, 1 5×7 reference print of each digital image and 10% off a la carte print orders
