When I started my business about four or five years ago, I read in a number of places (like the PPA magazine) that it was bad form, and generally unwise, to give away the negatives along with the cost of a wedding or portrait package. Today, I'm seeing more and more photography businesses giving away the negatives. Even the bigger agencies like The Pros or Bella Pictures are doing it as a standard feature in their packages. I'm torn now because it's hard to tell who is really a working professional and who is an amateur with a nice website. I mean, are these people giving away their negatives actually making money? Is it just the trend and I should follow it carefully and wisely, or should I hold my ground? I'm pretty stressed about the whole thing. Anyone have some advice?
