Ok so again and again I get asked to see a before and after photo. I normally like to just show the finished product because I love to get the “WOW” response from people. I will say though I heard this comment from a lady and it kind of threw me back. As we were at her shoot her comment went along these lines, ” well this is a nice chunk of cash for an hour of work, hey?” I at first was stunned, frustrated, livid and had a bunch of mean thoughts running through my head which I won’t go on to say what they were, but then I stopped and just stepped back a bit and had to remember she just wasn’t educated in this subject obviously. So my good friend and fellow photographer Meghan Maxwell had posted a few before and afters and as promised to her I would do the same. So here are a few of my before and afters to show that yes YOUR shoot is only an hour long. BUT… there are countless hours spent by a photogapher in front of their computer editing your images and making your picture perfect for your fabulous houses! This is not a rant I promise I just wanted to educate and show you all that although sometimes it seems that the work is just for an hour, it actually if calculated correctly can be up to 20 hours of work. (initial contact, scheduling, preparing, blog hoping for ideas, preparing gear, the actual shoot which is right you guessed it is 1-3 hours, then sorting photos, then editing, then preparing them for a blog/website, burning and getting your photos ready, and then processing orders) Like I said before it can take up to 20 hours for one session no exaggeration. Anyways, like I said this is by no means a rant I just wanted to let the uneducated know that it is not just an hour of work, there is a lot of time and talent that each photographer puts into their work!!!
Well my last blurb I love what I do behind the lens but I LOVE LOVE LOVE to work in photoshop and make your photos the VERY BEST they can be! So here are a few of my before and afters!
ENJOY! (Like Meghan said its kinda scary putting your before pics up so if you love me you’ll leave a comment..lol)
