The Value of a Great Photograph

the value of a great photograph

When choosing a photographer, an important consideration for most people is the cost involved in booking a shoot and purchasing prints or digital images. You have a budget in mind and are looking for good value. How you determine those things depends to a large extent on what a great photograph means to you, and your understanding of what goes into creating one.

Photography is so accessible now, most of us have digital cameras in our phones capable of producing great images, and an Instagram filter for every occasion. Then, for those who do want a professional job done, there have never been more photographers to choose from. So why would anyone consider paying (or asking for) more than the commodity rate? Because for some people getting the right images and having a great experience doing it is not a commodity choice. It’s a personal one, just like buying clothes to look your best in, or choosing a piece of art. And for others it’s a one time opportunity for that special moment in their life or business, so they want to feel assured of getting an excellent service and images to match it.

With a good portrait photographer you’re not just paying for consistently great images you can rely on (your time is valuable too), you’re paying for the experience being a smooth and enjoyable one, for their skill and creativity in helping you relax and look your best, as well as the hours you don’t see, in preparation and in processing the images after the shoot to add those final little touches of quality.

All these factors together are why great images are an investment in precious moments and memories.

If you would like to compare my services with other offerings, it’s worth being informed so you know what you’re really comparing. So here’s a guide for how to compare the price, quality and value of a photographer.

Digital Images

Prices for images from portrait photo shoots, in studio or location, for personal or personal business use*.

Images are delivered as a digital file. The price per image depends on number of images ordered and how you want to use those images. The more you order, the cheaper it is per image.

Image files for print usage are of high resolution to produce sharp, well defined, enlarged prints. Images for online usage (e.g. profile or website pics) are supplied in lower resolution suited for display on HD monitors and phones. Print usage orders include additional lower resolution versions for online usage as well.

Package Print and online usage (£) Online only (£)
1 image 135 95
4 images 300 200
10 images 600 400
