    I sometimes wonder if I should have turned on reveal voter identity.

    So who's our highly-priced photographer?

    For wedding jobs in USA or Australia, $10k is really nothing, considering that service alone would have cost that much.

    You'll be surprised how much our local couples are willing to pay to fly a sg photographer with them to europe to do a shoot for them.

    Or just to Vietnam (which is a lot nearer) ......

    For the top-end market in Jakarta, wedding photography for the couple can go up to 20 - 30 grand (SGD) for wedding photography alone. I don't want to go into the European, American and Australian market. Why would, and why should anyone be surprised if it's just 10 grand for SG? For all the millionaires we have in SG, would 10 grand be 'too expensive'?

    I sound like a broken record, but for the quality (and for some of us, quantity) that's being churned out by local photographers, it's worth a lot more than the value many local photographers place on them in their charges.

    I'm really happy and proud of the top-end wedding photogs who're working so hard to keep pushing the boundaries and paving way for the rest.

    heck... my frens think me charging them a mere $200 for the entire day is expensive.

    I think you are better off working with some of the professionals as secondary photographer, to cover mainly the group /table-to-table shots...you definitely get a lot more than $200 w/o having to print any 4R.

    Actually I believe the rates. People like Chris Ling and Andrew Choi are quoting in excess of 10k on their websites, so it seems very plausible that hourly rates can break the 1k mark. Hoping to do so as well by end of year.
