    Venture Photography

    You may have seen this company recently advertising in the SCMP etc about their lifestyle photographs which look great because of the white background. I had some family photos taken a couple of weeks ago and the photographer was great with kids, using balloons etc to make them laugh. $500 sitting fee redeemable on purchases. BUT the cost of buying photos is expensive. A 7"x5" desk photo is $2,160. A framed 10"x8" is $5,130. If you want 4 pics of 4"x4" framed in the one picture its $13,860. An album with 10 pics of 5"x5" is $13,050. Ouch. You can only go once to order your photos after the session, and in that one hour session you have to decide - puts the pressure on. IF you want to think about which photos you have framed, it costs $500 for another appointment to tell them what you want. I'm going to shop around further. These prices seem exhorbitant, or does it seem reasonable to others?

    Gosh, that is expensive!!! And I have already paid $500 and booked for a session :-(

    I know that for many of the other photographers, they charge a fixed fee per hour at the studio, but then, they give you back all the negatives, or at least let you have prints for the photos (ie. 3R, 4R...) for a much more reasonable price, say around $70 per print or something... Gosh, if only I had known that it is so expensive, I would not have bothered to book Venture...

    Last week, I go to the BB exhibition and find out Venture. Oops, the package is very very expensive. I also visit their website. Personally, I find the photos are great and seems more stylish. However, I really cannot afford it. Besides, I also find some similar photographers at much lower price.

    MamaS,

    We have a list of photographers here:
    http://www.geobaby.com/directory/hon...photographers/

    Sitting fee is approx $2000 and then you pay for the prints etc.

    Another option, there's a Photography group on Geoexpat. You could see if any of the members would be up for the challenge:
