    Loved your podcast today on Navigating the changes in a evolving photography landscape! Can’t wait to hear more on how to handle this upcoming tidal wave! Appreciate the hard work you guys do to put on a great podcast weekly.

    Turns out that I have been thinking about this change as well. What I foresee is that print products are getting less and less valuable in the eyes of the customer. Just look at society . . . we prefer email over “snail mail.” We prefer ebooks over bound books on paper. Schools even now have e-textbooks.I never carry cash–I’m happy for all my transactions to be electronic. We are lessening the value of anything that is physical. The customers that have grown up completely in this digital world simply aren’t going to see the value in printed photographs. We do because we grew up in a completely tangible world or in the middle of the digital revolution. But the clients that value that large print are getting fewer and fewer.

  • Ryan Talbot says:

    We all need to raise our digital pics rates dramatically. If the trend is that clients want digital pictures and to share them on social platforms then we as photogs need to agree to raise the prices. If you can’t sell prints as easy than what else can be done. Thanks for a great podcast
