Shooting household products like shampoo, soap, toothpastes, toothbrushes for those supermarket discount coupons?
sorry if i sounded too harsh or something
but they have to know that
they are the man/woman behide the scene( in this instance picture)
if model can receive hell alot of money
why cant you
btw you are the one that determines the final outcome...
what can they do without the photog
biz needs to advertise..
just imagine a company trying to sell a product without you
Honestly, it's surprising the fees could have drop so fast and so low. I think one of the main reasons why many photographers are charging a super low price is because they are new and they need to build a portfolio by either shooting for free or for a very low price. I am quite sure that many of us in the business did a little of that in the early days. This is quite unavoidable due the lack of education through high level internship (2 to 3 years) or a formal photography business course. Hence shooting for low/free fees, they will feel that it's the only way to get that portfolio and credentials. (Please note that I am not justifying this method, I am just stating an observation)
Also there a many new photographers coming into the scene compared pre-digital days, so there will be more of these stories.
Everyone's a photographer now...
don't worry so much... how long do you think a person who takes $5 per shot including DI is gonna last in the business if that person continues this kind of pricing?
nope... im just a noob...
its just a hobby..
and i dont think anyone would actually teach me their forte
so what is the company name.. can share bo..
hmmm... its the advertisers at the end earn. and they do not publish whose photographs they use. so in the end... advertising firm earns the most and gets publicity.
photography industy here in singapore is very different from what we see or experience in the states or even the uk.
the ad agencies earn the margins... if they can get by with the cheapest photography option they will use it... look at today's BMW ad... they are advertising the latest model of a convertable 3 series, but they are using an ancient photo of the Singapore CBD skyline... no One Raffles Quay or One Fullerton or new Merlion park never mind, UOB building also don't have...
