I loved this…. I got this in an email this morning from a canvas company. So this leads right into what has really been bugging me over the last few years; First of all the market is saturated with start up photographers. People who think they can come in buying a brand new $4,000 camera and start up a photography business. So now that it is saturated, what we have now are these photographers trying to cut into the market with cheap photo sessions and throwing the disk at you. I know, I know everyone LOVES the disk… Ok why? So you can throw it in a drawer? So now what you have is mediocre photographs that you just spent all this time preparing you and your family for (and we ALL know how that can be!!!! I just had my family shoot done UGGH!) and now you are thinking, ok now I can go to Costco or somewhere when I get some free time and get one of those gallery wraps done (ha! see the free time? yep we all have TONS of that right) WRONG!
(come by my studio sometime and see my crackled gallery wrap done cheaply 5 years ago)
So here is what I know…. Here at Melinda Kim Photography we are FULL service. Not only are you getting 11 years of photography knowledge, but you are also getting TOP quality prints, amazing boutique items you can’t get anywhere else, AND the assurance you have hired a true professional and a full service studio (who is legal and pays taxes BTW) So a few things I see in the future, one is that I see it as a good thing that the market is full of these photographers in the fact that they will burn out sooner or later, and those of us with business knowledge and years of experience will only get better because they are pushed to. I am happy that all these years I have stuck to what “I” do and what not the masses do. I know now that this has kept me busy and kept my clients happy. I know that I bring my clients so much joy everyday when they see their amazing images on their walls. Oh and did I mention that I give you a disk too? Win win is what I say!
