When you run a business, how you price yourself is a difficult decision. There’s a lot of research that goes into it. Within the photography industry, there are many different options for how to price yourself. I decided to go for the most upfront and honest. The route of a session fee means that you only pay for the things you want. Many photographers have a larger fee but include all the images – but what if you don’t want all the images? Or you don’t want digital files you only want a statement piece of artwork for you wall? This is why I chose to follow the session fee route. You only have to pay for what you want.
The session fee for each photography session pays for my time on the day, my editing time (a session’s gallery will take me about 5 hours to edit), any props, outfits, specialist equipment I may need for your shoot, the running costs for that session (electricity if in my studio or petrol to get to a location) as well as my training and expertise.
With only a small session fee, it means that I am able to offer affordable, professional photography to everyone because everyone deserves beautiful photos, don’t they?
