OK, so I've calmed down now.
Yesterday, I received a request for samples of interior photography from a 'Holiday Letting Company', with "many units in your area". It was all about 'quality' 'experience' and 'professionalism'. So I compiled an email, complete with links to my work. I got a link to their image samples and here is the jist of their reply:
" . . It usually takes our photographers about 45 minutes to shoot a listing with 24 images . . . "
Mmmm, now where do I begin with this rant? With the risk of alienating potential clients, 45 minutes would just about get me out of the car, with lighting, computer, camera and tripod set up to go for the first shot! So who is going to benefit from this wonderful experience?
The Holiday Unit Owner?
Creator of untold amounts of imagery produced for some lovely appreciative clients. Fond of good food, good company and enjoying what's out there.
