It never ceases to amaze me by peoples reluctance/refusal to pay (even at a greatly reduced rate) for quality professional photography. I have a special running that costs $200 (here local) and $125 (in a far more depressed area of the state) for a package:
- • Shot by Multiple Award Winning Photographer
- • Five Professionally Retouched Images - As Selected by You
- • Your Pictures are Back to You in Less Then 2 Weeks
- • The 5 Images in 8x10
- • Your Own CD Containing The Five Images For Future Reprints ***
They seem to all be under the impression that since everyone has a camera that everyone can take a great picture. I mean, a $200 8MP camera is as good as a $1600 8MP camera, right? After all, 8MP is 8MP. They fail to realize that the guy behind it is what matters, and that it is not the cost of the gear.
So, what if dental drills become all the rage like digital cameras - and everyone gets one? Will you go to your 12yr old to get your teeth drilled, or maybe the guy with the training and know-how. The professional.
Maybe I should sell my gear off and bye good cookware ...
