WHY DOES CUSTOM PHOTOGRAPHY COST MORE?
The answer is a combination of any of the following. It has a lot to do with the artistic vision and reputation of the photographer, as well as the usual costs of running a legitimate business.
TIME OF THE CUSTOM PHOTOGRAPHER:
Let us look at it from time standpoint, for instance you have hired a photographer whose work you love and has to travel an hour to your session. Time breakdown as follows:
As you can see, the average client time for a session ranges anywhere from 12- 15 hours depending on the level of service the photographer provided. This is time dedicated only to your session. When the photographer charges you their fee for a photo shoot, you are not just paying for the one and half hours of the session time, you are paying for the 12-15 hours’ time to complete your session.
