Why don't Photographers give us the proofs?

posted on 5th of september, 2008

Tonight we met with the photographer who took my daughters 2 year pictures last week. The photos turned out nice, we paid $100 sitting fee and bought another $300 in prints..... but my question for you photographers out there is, why can't we have the proofs? When I asked if she was going to give us the proofs, she said no, but I will have a shredder sale at the end of the year

and you can get them really cheap...... so instead of giving me my daughters proofs - you would rather shred them...... doesn't seem like good customer service to me. Needless to say, we won't be using her for the 3 year photos.

One reason is that they are afraid that the folks with the proofs will just scan them and do their own printing. Instead, you have to buy the pictures to get that capability.
