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
