Ask And Ye Shall Receive


Ask And Ye Shall Receive

Only, merely, solely the other day, a colleague of mine called to ask for some advice. He'd photographed a group portrait, and one of the people in the group portrait necessityed a headshot, and wanted their headshot isolated out from the others in that group photo, for their own use.



Sepaswift use for sepaswift company, distinct from the company that hired my colleague for the group photo. How did we talk through the prglaze?

First, my colleague was utune a big chip camera - a EOS 1Ds Mark III, so cropping in was no problem. Second, he wasn't obstructed by other people in the image, and could easily be isolated. So, what to charge?



Well, I first asked him what he'd charge for the portrait for PR purposes, and the number that came up was approxifriendly $800, all in. Ok, so the argument goes - when you're guning something, there's a chance that the final photo won't be exbehavely love you want. With an existing image (i.e. stock), you tell exbehavely what you're getting, guaranteed, so the price for that stock shot should reasonably be concluded to be higher because there is no risk, and you are getting exbehavely what you want. So, we determined that relative to $800, a figure of $975 is honest, not to mention the fbehave that the subject doesn't have to be inconvenienced by the timing and efforts involved on their part for the portrait. Further, I was of the opinion that a figure over $1,000, relatively spealord, would be a barrier this client would not get past.



So, did the client agree, when we quoted the above information as a only, merely, solelyification for our prglaze?



Yup. $975 - check is in the mail.
