basically what the blog says above.

Also, I have a couple people talking about it on my FB wall if you want to check it out. One girl keeps dividing pay by the hours and doesn't get that you have to take off taxes and all that other jazz before you can get to the actual dollar amount you are making. I had an electrician redo the church and we had to keep one chatty person from talking to him because he was charging us $90 an hour. Why do people not see photography as a "custom" deal? Probably because everyone has a screwdriver (camera).
Quote:
I just saw your craigslist ad. I, myself, charge 1,000 but that's mostly due to the fact that I have a salaried job. At 1,000 do you know how much net income I make if I were to do 4 weddings a month? Each wedding it costs me about $500-600 to just do the wedding. So I'm making about $500 off of each wedding. For the wedding editing it will take me about 25 hours of my time to cull, edit, save, backup + the time it too me to shoot. So for 1,000-500=500/32 hours = 15.62 an hour - taxes = around $14. And I just provide downloads.

Did you know that you'd need to add another 20-30 hours of work for a custom album and did you know the people that charge $3200 don't get their albums from the cheap printing places? A 40 page album with the right material will cost anywhere from $200-400.

When you look at it in perspective a $3200 payment for an all day event really isn't THAT bad of a deal when you look at the actual cost. If they are a "real" pro they are carrying around about 15,000 dollars worth of equipment with them when they show up at your wedding. I personally bring around 5grand of stuff and then rent a few lenses that are about $1300-2500 a piece. That rental alone is $150+. So there's a pretty good cost to even come do a professional wedding. If they are doing their best on your photos they are spending about if not more than a weeks worth of time on your photos (sometimes more). It's not like they just show up, shoot, dump photos on the computer, press a button and are done.

For the $3200 they are charging they are probably making $2grand. The problem with your analogy with a normal worker is that when they show up most of the equipment they use is supplied by the employer and not a custom job.

If you have someone come and lay a foundation for your house the person that is actually doing the work might get paid minimum wage but you are totally paying a premium on the costs to the company to do it. Photography is a "custom job" and is priced accordingly. Just hoping this brings about some clarity. You've probably gotten plenty of emails already.

I've used tumblr for approximately 20 minutes and it destroys wordpress IMO. At least in UI.

I could potentially be getting a job at an advertising company in Cincinnati! I should find out in a week or so.

Also, I saw this on my homepage today...

short and sweet rant:

In my line of work people expect me to be in their face about stuff but I don't like to do that. I.E. I'm walking down the road and I say hello to someone and they say hi and we pass. Then they walk away and go tell people, "Well I passed by the pastor today and he said hello but didn't stop and talk to me."

WTF! If you needed me to be personable you have just as much responsibility in this exchange as I do. I'd be more than willing to sit down and talk with you. But don't run off and use my role as an excuse that I don't care when I could walk away and say the same (which I don't). grrr

::EDIT::

There's also a great chance that people change their personalities/interactions with me based on my title. When I do talk to people they start talking about why they didn't come to church, why they haven't been there, about some other religious topic and believe it or not I'm not too interested in superficial talk about those things. It doesn't accomplish much except for the fact that you feel better because I took some time (which I guess is the point but I'd rather have a reciprocal encounter instead of a superficial one).

Working right now. It's nice having a salaried job where you somewhat make your own hours but then you procrastinate/think there's just a bit more to do so you end up being in the office reading reddit, pbnation and hopping on steam. lol
