    yes, that's right, some couple told me that some photographers charge very cheap and do free touch up on all 4R photos, I told them this is a very good deal, go and grab it.

    I don't do touch up for free.

    As quality increases(with age), have you/others face problem to increase pricing? how to counter that?

    why should be a problem leh?
    every year all workers are having wagers adjustments upward.

    why should we photographers be henta kaki on our pricing?
    don't we deserve this also, especially we do improve on our skills, service, products and everything as time go by?

    naturally u need to haf clients in the high places... so if u manage to land one and did a pompipi job for them, ur name will be passed around in fancy parties and with some luck u might land another high profile job and another.. and another...

    main thing is to maybe know ur target market and know ur own niche.

    don't worry too much.

    serve those who really appreciate your works and your price.

    for those couples looking for cheap deal, let them go and look for cheap photographers.

    so everyone will be happy, and all live happily ever after.

    not sure, can't comment as i dun use their services at all.

    i guess everyone goes to a familiar lab where they always get their prints done there. so u might like to run a search in CS and check out the rest of the labs u mentioned.
