[I recently posted an article entitled, 10 Reasons Professional Photographers Charge What They Do. As I was writing this article, I realized my 10 could be expanded and have even more detail. So this is the start of 10 Reasons Why Photographers Can Command Such High Fees.]
1. In any profession, it always comes down to trust. Do you trust who you’re hiring to do the best job possible?
Professional photographers have the knowledge and the skill to make you look the best you can be. That’s their job. That’s their passion. That’s what they’ve chosen to do for a living. That’s what set them apart from amateurs.
I can buy a hammer for a few dollars at the hardware store. Yet I spent hundreds of dollars for a handyman to repair my deck. I can buy a needle and thread for a few dollars at the fabric store. Yet I spent over $100 on alterations at a local tailor. It’s not about the tools; it’s about the outcome.
If you just want a snapshot, go to a friend with a camera. But if you have the desire for an experience like know ot her, hire a photographer. The results will show the difference.
