High Priced Artwork?

how to save with us, 1 minute read

Do professional photographers* charge too much for their prints?

Have you ever wondered why? Are we greedy?

Why do we get a little ticked off when we come across a print of ours that was not professionally printed? Why many of us don't sell digital files to our customers?

Why should someone buy a print from J Craig Photos. when flipping through a box of prints at a retail store is quicker and cheaper?

Do we need to get over ourselves? No, and here is why.

In short, anything less than a professional print makes our images look, well, not so good.

We photographers shoot with a specific end product in mind. We frame, expose, develop and size for this. The end product won't measure up without a lab that can print our "vision". It might look good to the untrained eye, but we see what is lacking. It is usually disappointing and can be an embarrassment.

This link, a blog post by Tom Schell, Nations Photo Lab, Aug 2021, will detail the differences.
