Free photos? Recently I was searching images for a client and woke up again to the unpleasant fact that some companies still ask photos for free, with unlimited rights. Most of my images were taken after staying the nights in nature, hiking and driving around Finland. The gear I need for this (especially winter) costs me a lot as well as my camera gear. I work so hard to get the images I wish and I’m extremely happy that I am able to live my dream, but that is also the reason I wanted to talk about this subject to you guys.
Every photo has a price.
I know a lot of my followers (you guys ❤️) love photography and take amazing shots yourselves too, so hopefully you are on a same page with me. Even if you take photos as a hobby, remember that they are valuable and worth all your time and effort. I know that they are gorgeus too!
Ps. I really appreciated the recent story of @matthewhahnel about pricing your photos and using for example Getty Images calculator for an advice If needed. I tested it as well and it was pretty good.
