The 1990s was a golden decade for commercial photography. By that I mean riches that flowed like a river.
The combination of high demand and limited supply meant that even run of the mill photographers could earn staggering amounts of money.
Those days are gone now. The craft moat that surrounded every photographer’s castle has been filled thanks to digital photography.
Some of my industry peers are bitter that the commercial gravy train has derailed. Not me. I’m still astonished that I lived through a time of such abundance.
Now, more than ever, it’s worth remembering how important it is to satisfy the customer.
This photobooth in Destin, Florida employs the same business plan that I do. It’s a good reminder that I need to make sure that what I’m selling is worth the money.
