I had some portraits taken at a professional photography studio about a week ago, resulting in about 45 proofs. The shoot was three and a half hours long, and for the session (essentially that three and a half hours) he charged $400, which seemed perfectly reasonable to me. At this point I was under the impression that he would charge me $200 more for 12 touched-up photos on a CD (but in all honesty because I don't have this on paper, I'm not sure if what I interpreted is different from what he said), but when I arrived a few days later to trim down the 45 stills to 12 with him, he told me it's $200 PER touched-up image. That's $2400 for 12 pictures. I know at the end of the day that this is my fault for not having a clear understanding before I started the session, however these photos wound up fantastic. He knows it, and he knows I know it. I'm reluctant to go back to another place and have to re-do a photo shoot because while the pictures are fantastic, I just simply don't have $2400+ for him. Do these rates seem sane to you? An entire day's shoot at a wedding starts at around $2500 from what I've researched for most professional photographers, and we did our session AT his studio at it wasn't nearly as long. Does it make sense that my session's more expensive? FYI, the prices are in Canadian dollars. Also, the pictures are not even the raw images, which he says is MORE expensive with touch-ups. He wants to give me a .jpg and .tiff for each still, hence what he calls the "package price" at $200 per image.
