Hello there, in my last blog post I posted an email from a lady who contacted me after being let down by her photographer. – I ranted a little but for good reason as I felt that booking a photographer is a very important part of the day.
Yesterday I head this on the radio and found the link today.
READ THIS STORY ABOUT COUPLE SUING THEIR PHOTOGRAPHER
I will say it again, on my office wall I have this quote printed out and wish I had the balls to have this as the front page of my website – so many people judge the quality of the photographer by the whats included in the price and it seems the more included (lower price) the better value the photographer is ??????
Here is the quote
John Ruskin, 1819-1900 Author, Influential Critic, Philospher
“It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s unwise to pay too little.
When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all.
When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything,
because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do.
The common law of business prohibits paying a little and getting a lot – it can’t be done.
If you deal with the lowest bidder, it’s well to add something for the risk you run.
And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.”
