"You get what you pay for" is pretty much true in everything in life.
I'm not the 'cheapest' photographer you will find (why would you want me to be?) but I also will not be the most expensive. I believe I charge reasonable rates to supply the best quality images and offer my clients the service and quality of work they deserve and would want.
Consider every profession and the fees payable to the artist employed. How much effort and time are they likely to put in if the returns don't make it worth their while? Everything in life is the same, you get what you pay for. You shop at M&S and Waitrose for some items because you know very well that they will be better than the same items in Lidl or Aldi. You buy a Mercedes or Audi because the quality is far higher than a Kia or a Hyundai (no offence to any owners of these vehicles, they are purely examples) and therefore worth paying extra for. It's the same with photography. If you pay a small fee to a photographer who does not make the effort because they would be better off moving onto their next assignment because there is more in it for them, you will not get the same returns. You want great results to drive new customers your way. Fantastic images that sell your business will easily pay for themselves many many times over. It's a business investment.
The prices I have quoted are really a guide. I know if I was looking for somebody to hire online, I would want some idea of how much it would cost. I'd be very unlikely to call or email somebody without fees. So you may prefer to pay for your images per photograph rather than per day or half day, that's fine, we can come up with something. I would just need to know what, where, when, how long and we can agree a figure we are both happy with.
If you want great images you will have to pay for them. I'm the only person that can take the photographs that I take. If you are looking for a cheap photographer, ask yourself how much effort will they put into their work. Why are they cheap? For the rates below I will commit 100% to getting the best possible results and spend as much time as it takes in post processing and delivery of the images. Many people don't realise that the on site / photo shoot time is normally only around 30% - 50% of the total timescale of the final image delivery.
The reason you are looking for a photographer in the first place is normally to help you sell something, whether it be your property, business, service, products or even yourself and your staff. Paying the right commissions for the right results will pay for itself in the long run.
