Digital Files (a sometimes touchy subject with photographers!)
Slightly long, kinda personal post coming up!
In case you aren’t aware, this Furtographer machine is just me, Rachel (and Moosie my Greyhound… but she’s a terrible employee, constantly sleeping on the job 🤣. Lucky she's cute!)
The last 12 months have seen a massive amount of upheaval in my life.
I quit my 9-5 job.
It was really scary. I’d worked there for 18 years!
There have been some amazing outcomes from my being able to put 100% effort into this tiny business of mine.
My photo quality has improved exponentially.
I’m able to really serve my customers in the most personal way possible. Going out of my way to provide what you guys want and need.
My products are of much higher quality.
There is one downside….
At a time of rising inflation and interest rates;
The huge cost of living expenses;
And a housing crisis;
I had to raise my prices 😔
This is something I HATE.
I want EVERYBODY to be able to afford my services.
Not just fancy people, with fancy jobs and fancy dogs.
I also want to be able to keep a roof over my head and keep myself and Moosie fed (and the occasional beer 🍺)
Raising my prices affects me to my core. I feel really shitty about it.
I lost my people. The people I really want in my studio. YOU.
Families with crazy busy lives, a few kids, a few pets and a mortgage.
SO… in the interest of keeping my business thriving and never having to work for “the man” ever again, I’ve introduced a new way of pricing my digital images.
Digitals are my biggest sellers. Most professional photographers baulk at selling digitals only. I’m not one of those photographers. If digitals are what you want, digitals are what you’ll get!
I have a new pricing tier with 4 options.
All options have savings from 10 to 30%… ALWAYS.
What’s the catch?
Once your gallery is released, to receive generous discounts, you have to pay within 48 hours
So all families can afford a great package of photos.
Most of my prizes, vouchers and sessions have $110 credit included, so you can take an extra $110 off all the listed prices!
$ Payment $
Can be made by bank transfer, credit card, direct debit, Afterpay or payment plan with Payright. So there is an option for everyone and every budget.
Every single customer that has come to my studio is eligible for these discounts. Past, present and future customers.
If you've had a session in the past and simply couldn't afford my more expensive options, you can take advantage of these new prices and get more of those images you loved but had to leave behind because of budget constraints.
Well Rachel, show me the new pricing you've been banging on about!
