photographers are raving about the essential pricing guide for portrait photographers...

So many commonly used pricing guides and number templates float around and address pricing as it relates to the cost to produce an item or a package (for example, the costs of a DVD). And many suggest that pricing should be a multiplier of Cost of Goods, as if Cost * 2 covers everything related to producing that item, or corresponds to it's value. However, few Guides provide you with a solid background on all aspects of costs and pricing (such as Cost of Living, your market and your value), to help you arrive at a true picture of profitability.

Cost: the outlay or expenditure (as of effort or sacrifice) made to achieve an object

Price: the amount of money given or set as consideration for the sale of a specified thing

Value: relative worth, utility, or importance

Hear what people are saying...

"I just couldn't put it away. I worked through the whole thing from start to finish. VERY different approach from what I'm used to hearing (which is the "multiply it by 7 or 10 for prints and by 3 or 4 for canvases/books" etc. It's a whole paradigm shift! I'm planning on reviewing it and comparing it to EVERYTHING I've heard in the last 3 years. It's THAT different." - Caryn Scanlon

"Are you a portrait photographer? Do you know your numbers? I am discovering mine! Thanks Design Aglow for another awesome, elegant and useful product for photographers" - Seshu Badrinath

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!

One thing we love about living in Portland is the strong emphasis on sustainability and a genuine concern for the environment. The natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest has obviously inspired locals to care and take action, to protect the lushness surrounding them. The name of the game here is conservation and preservation - with multiple trash/recycle/compost bin options in every restaurant and coffee shop, to chicken coops adorning backyards aplenty. We’re so pleased to see this positive trend hit the design and technology spheres, as hard copies become a thing of the past and the Cloud becomes the Internet’s new storage bin.

I’m Cheyenne, and I’m a body positive, self love boudoir photographer based in Philadelphia. I love my mama, my puppy girl Penny, my babe, and cheesesteaks. When I was 13, I picked up my first camera. Two years later I started a little business photographing families, babies, and a very tiny wedding! I continued to shoot through my time in art school and eventually decided to fully dive into creating a well rounded business for myself. I left college after my junior year and worked my butt off to build up my business.
