Does it Really Cost £250 to Put Some Photos on a Disc?

What I'm referring to here is digital copies of photos from a studio sitting. And no, it doesn't cost £250 to put photos on a disc. So why do I charge £250 for your photos on a disc?

Ultimately, I have to make a profit… Many people think digital copies are a cheap way of getting lots of prints. Get the disc, take it to Tesco and get dozens of prints for all the family for pennies. Well yes. That would be great. But I don't make anything from it. What I really want is for you to buy all those prints from me. And some frames. And maybe a canvass or 2!

But I understand that people might not want to do that. You're likely to get between 30 and 50 photos if you buy a disc. If you bought the prints from me that would cost you at least £450. And that's just for 7x5"! So what I'm basically doing is compensating myself for the prints you don't get from me. For that many photos £250 is a bargain really!
