I recently took some family photographs in a photo studio. The photographer took about 80 photos in 2 hours. I paid about $600 for 4 photos to be developed. When I asked for all the digital images in RAW format, he said that it is too expensive for me. When I asked for all the digital images in JPG format, he said that it will be about $50 per image (resolution will be reduced to be only able to print up to A4 size). That means I have to pay $4000 to have all the 80 digital images in a CD!
Does he have the legal right to keep all the images and charge such prices if I want a copy of the digital images?
Who is the right authority in Singapore who will advise me correctly and help me resolve this issue?
Please help advise.
