Rebidding a Quote

So I got a phone call the other day asking for a quote on 40 doctors for a new website. It would require going to 4 hospitals whenever the doctors may be free for a quick 5 minutes or less of their time. There would be no staging. Where ever they may happen to be is how I take the shot.

This would take a lot of maneuvering on my part to be available whenever, to travel to 4 local hospitals, and not be able to stage the setting to give that doctor a “picture with personality!”  I gave the individual a terrific quote. She said she knew me and saw me work an event through the Guilderland Chamber of Commerce and would be happy to work with me. Oh, and she said, “by the way, I will be asking another photographer for their quote and if it is lower than yours, I’ll give you a call so you can rebid your quote!”

That’s the way our industry is going. Geez!

I had the pleasure of meeting Joan Heffler for an event where I was volunteering. First thing is first- her pictures and variety she shared was unbelievable! Part of what makes Joan unique is her ability to capture that special moment and with her creativity, makes all of those pictures come to life. Not only that, but she has a wonderful personality and talking with her was an absolute pleasure. It is nice to know that behind the lens, is a real person looking to make your day special. She was professional, friendly and courteous throughout and I will reccommend her to everyone I know looking for photography services 🙂
