We hear it a lot from people outside the studio. Admiring the photographs in the window and then telling each other how expensive it must be; even though they haven’t asked us. So today’s post is all about the money.
So, is it expensive?
Well to be honest it’s not cheap. But then if you wanted cheap you wouldn’t be looking at a professional pet photographer. We don’t want to be cheap! What we want is to offer value for money, good service, and high quality products.
Art work that will last a lifetime, memories that live on forever – and that doesn’t really fall into the cheap bracket.
A Quick Comparison
Let’s take a look at one of our popular products – our wonderful 75cm x 50cm acrylic print.
A glossy high definition print that oozes quality and definitely makes a statement in any home. It’s big, it fabulous … and it retails at £225.
If looked after properly, it will last a lifetime – so that’s a one time cost.
We decided to take a look around on the internet for something to compare this to, to try and show what great value for money this investment would be. We struggled to find anything interesting to be honest, but we did find one or two interesting things.
Make-up – I’m not making this up!
According to a study in 2017, women spend an average of £450 per year on make-up. That would almost pay for two of our big acrylic prints – and you would be able to wear make-up again next year!
An average of £200 a year is just spent on fixing eyebrows that were plucked to oblivion only a few years ago.
Must Have Coffee … Really, I Need A Coffee!
In the UK the average person is spending more than £300 a year on coffee, and over £700 a year on wine.
If you just cut down a bit not only would your blood pressure thank you, but you would soon be able to afford our fabulous big acrylic print … that will last forever.
So What I mean is ….
Although pet photography can look expensive, once you look at how much we spend on things that really don’t last long (especially coffee and wine, in my particular case) then you can see that it really is good value for money. And with a £50 credit towards wall art purchases when you book your photo shoot, then I would go as far as to say it’s a bargain.
