Just for a Photo

JUST FOR A PHOTO
I was recently approached by someone wishing to purchase a photo that I had taken of a performer. They wished to use the photo on promotional flyers so that they could generate more income for the performer. When I advised them of the price the comment I received was “JUST FOR A PHOTO”. I’m not to say how much the price was but will say that it was less than the cost of two new music CD’s. Nor am I going to name the person who made the comment as it is not my intention to embarrass them and the sole purpose of this post is to explain how my photos and those of other serious photographers are not just photos.…

Have you ever given any thought to what goes into creating a good photograph? You need passion, equipment, time, training, desire and skills.

Professional Printing & Monitor Calibration

I have been approached to exhibit my photos for a 4 week period in October, 2013 (long lead time gives me plenty of time to panic) and I am now trying to find out the best options for printing of images, framing them and ensuring that my monitor is calibrated.

Does anyone know of good professional photo printers in Sydney?

Any suggestions for framing photos for an exhibition?

What does everyone use to calibrate their monitors?

Do your prints match your screen?

Any advice or suggestions would be very welcome.

Looking forward to reading your thoughts
