You Don’t Need a Pro Photographer For That



My friend Joanne received the above inquiry via her website and sent it my way for help in responding. The following is my suggestion.

Dear Prospective Client,

Thank you for visiting my website. I am thrilled that you liked what you saw and reached out to me with an inquiry regarding my services.

If I understand correctly, you want to provide me with an SD card that I will use and give back to you so that YOU can retouch and order prints yourself.

Now, if that is all you want, you don’t need a professional photographer for that…

You just need a mobile phone and selfie stick.

Warmest regards,
