Photos for Free. Really?!

Scenarios like the following knock me out. People don’t get it.

I’m photographing an event and one of the guests asks me to take a photo of them with a VIP and then hands me their card and says “could you email that to me?”

For free???? Really. This is my life’s work and I can’t give it away for free. I say, “if you wish to pay for it, I would be delighted to email that image to you.” I get a frown.

Folks, you don’t go into a store and ask to borrow a dress for one evening for a gala and then return it the next day do you? Then please understand that photographers take images at events for pay, not for free.

I would be happy to photograph for anyone wishing to value the work of professional photographers. Feel free to contact me at joan@joanheffler.com">joan@joanheffler.com and visit my website at www.joanhefflerphotography.com.

I’m a photographer, and when it came to getting updated professional headshots, there’s no one I wanted to capture my personality in pictures other than Joan. I was familiar with her work as she previously took portraits for my organization. She is professional, thorough, and gets great results. I am so happy with my portraits, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for terrific photos at a very reasonable value! Thanks Joanie!
