Do photographers charge way to much for their photos?
In one of the more well known photo publications, the author of a current article postulated that photographers charge way to much for their images. He believes photographers are elitist when they price into their work skill, experience and past success.
The author feels that $20 is a fair price for an 8x10 photograph based on the fact that a good meal at a bistro or a current release CD costs about $20 and that a 8x10 photograph will bring the purchaser about the same amount of pleasure.
Also at $20 dollars the photographer would sell many more photos because many more people could afford one or more images at a time.
I was just wondering if anyone else had an opinion...
