Understanding Pricing Photography Services

"Pricing Photography Services" is a topic little understood by my many new age freelance & even some professional photographers. A consequence of poor financial planning has its effects on deliverables to clients, a reason for non-photographers (Clients) to read this article too.

Photography looks easy, Lots of cameras are available, even phones have over 100MP resolutions these days.

  • Then why a photographer?
  • Premium pricing for photography?
  • Do I lose out on anything when I hire a photographer who charges less?

If there is that one major factor that guarantees your chance of getting noticed online matrimony profile, it is your profile photograph, a well-shot headshot. Your headshot is your first impression and the deciding factor for you to get noticed or ignored. Once a first impression is made, it is very hard to change that perception of you. A good set of profile pictures communicates a lot about your personality and your seriousness in a relationship.

Psychologists say it takes about a tenth of a second to form an impression about the person we meet!

No wonder First Impression is the Best Impression

Most people are put off by poor quality photos that are

  • low in resolution
  • grainy/noisy and taken in dull light.
  • having very old photographs in your profile.
  • not having enough variations in your pictures used in your profile
  • photos that don’t really represent who you are (your intro text says something which does not match your picture portfolio)

Read on to know more on how to go about creating an online profile that gets you the most responses from people you are most compatible with.

With the dominance of major e-commerce platforms such as Amazon, Flipkart and the ease at which brands can go online with their own website and start selling online there is serious competition for brick & mortar stores in terms of scalability os sales by reaching out to a larger base of potential customers.

The biggest challenge that is seen in this route of building a Brand / Sales through the online route is the "Cost". Many expect e-commerce to work magic but the truth of the matter is "E-commerce does have its costs which match up to/be higher than the cost of a physical store". while the previous statement is true what one needs to realise that at the same price it also allows one to reach out to a larger client base which in turn can be converted to a higher sales volume & better margins.

Now use your Canon dSLR as a webcam

With the spread of COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdowns across the globe virtual meetings and gatherings have become the new norm, resulting in a huge surge in demand for webcams and prices several times the MRP/MSRP. With the lockdown also brought much of our photography business to a standstill, the biggest pinch we felt was the lack of a webcam (i do remember having a decades-old, low-resolution webcam somewhere with the broken mount - hence the "somewhere bit")

We did manage a while with workarounds using 3rd party software and a screen-capture of onscreen live-view video from my cameras(DSLRs)

All this changed by this awesome announcement by Cannon

Why you should rent a studio

Organising and executing your own studio session is affordable !!

It is one of the best ways to take your photographic skills to the next level.

The primary advantage of shooting in a studio is the ability to control and shape the quality of light. Shooting under studio lighting also allows even low end / cropped sensor cameras to render sharp, well-detailed images. All of this control and quality means having access to a sufficiently large space and all the equipment that goes with it, usually a fairly hefty price to own & maintain. Thereby making renting a studio space is a great way to gain experience without the financial pain of buying your own equipment.

Her Highness, Rajmata Pramoda Devi Wadiyar flagged off the run at the iconic Balarama Jayarama Gateway of the Mysuru Palace. Three days, 145 kms, six sighted guides running with six blind runners onward to Bengaluru. This is a historic run and an inspiring for the running community where visually impaired athletes Mala Kolkar, Renuka Rajput, Sunitha N.D, Kavya N, Nandeesha Janardan and Ajay Eranna along with their guide runners Venkatesh N, Bhadresh S, Bhumika Patel, Nandish Kumar, Rajesh N V and Sachin Tiptur ran the 145 kms Spirit of Pinkathon run from Mysuru to Bengaluru, over 3 days from 23rd to 25th of January 2019. It is also a notable fact that most of the guides too were attempting their first Ultra Marathon

This run celebrates the spirit of health and well-being in the face of all obstacles. The idea was suggested by Head Coach of Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled Bhumika Patel after the VI runners made a record of becoming India’s first visually impaired athletes’ team to complete full marathon at a timed event.

I had the wonderful opportunity to cover the whole event (had earlier had the opportunity to

R.I.P Stan Lee, you were a Marvellous Legend

There will never be another Stan Lee. For decades he provided both young and old with unlimited adventure, friendship and joy. We’ve lost a creative genius, a pioneering force in the superhero universe. 

If there is that one major factor that guarantees your chance of getting responses on your online matrimony profile, it is your matrimonial profile photograph. Your photograph is your first impression, the deciding factor which decides if you get noticed or ignored. Once a first impression is made, it is very rare that the perception about you changes. A good profile (and photograph) also communicates your seriousness for a long term relationship / commitment.

According to psychologists  it takes just 1/10 of a second to form an impression about the person we meet! No wonder First Impression is the Best Impression

Poor quality photos that are of low resolution, grainy, and also not having enough photographs or posting old photos that don’t really represent who you are.

Happy Faces from BRUR - 2018

Bangalore Runners Unity Run – BRUR, is a FUN RUN event by the runners, for the runners, hosted by the running community of #NammaBengaluru to celebrate the passion and joy of running with their family and friends in a scenic location of #NammaBengaluru.

No timing chips, no podiums, no medals, just pure joy of running to your heart’s content with your friends and family !

I've been running at this event for 2 years and had initially planned to take my family to this run (especially my little one). Was a little sad as i would be missing it this year with my wife Shilpa having taking up classes for a banking exam and me left to baby sit. A last minute call for volunteers by fellow Runner ShivaG had me there in the morning (mom was back from a short travel and requested her to take care of Sauhard so that I could go to BRUR) ... 

The Runs organised by the Running groups of Bangalore are any-day much for fun and well managed than the "Big Runs" and are an excellent opportunity to introduce your kids, family or friends to the joyful crazy world of running.

you need to see these photos to see what a fun filled event this is ...
