Kudos to the local PR firm I wrote about earlier this week. They happened upon my blog and read my rant about the $150-per-photo-charge. Rather than cringe in their offices or whine about my lack of understanding, they picked up the phone and called me.
That takes guts.
The PR Firm told me their side of the story. They’re not selling the photographs. They contracted out to a third party photographer for the shoot. The photographer is selling the photographs for $150 per photo. He believes his work is worth $150 per photo.
I still disagree with the price tag but that’s okay. I’m still left with a better feeling about the situation because the PR Firm called me to chat about it.
The outcome didn’t change. The photos are still $150 per photo and I’m still not buying any. But, I feel good that the local guys cared enough to call.
