Why does my photographer cost so much?

05th January 2016
Thinking of booking a photographer?

Why do they cost so much?

Let me explain.

What you think you're paying for.

Someone to take photo's for you

What you are actually paying for.

Someone to take photo's for you


Equipment and insurance
Transportation to and from venue
Training to become the professional photographer they are
Promotion and website costs
Telephone and internet bills spent organising the booking

Not to mention

Paying themselves a wage to support their family

Still think that offering "exposure" and experience is a fair price?

You wouldn't expect a plumber, doctor, hairdresser etc to work for free for the "exposure".

Please share this with everyone so people understand that photographers are not "ripping you off" for a few pictures. They are responsible business people running a business that has wages, taxes etc to pay.
