Kate Singh Photography Studio participates in the Vancouver First Friday Art Walk ... Email below is from an art walk visitor.
"A few months ago I moved to the area and came to your studio during the First Friday opening. Today I visited your website. I'm struck with the beauty and authenticity of your work. Listening to you speak about your photography I feel how you connect through the heart with your clients.
I don't have photo needs, just wanted to share how much I appreciate the passion with which you approach your work and how wonderful it is."
This is an ongoing issue for professional photographers.
We are constantly shifting to accommodate our clients in this digital age.
Where are the beautiful portraits that are passed on for generations? Maybe they are only good for one generation, now, and then discarded in our mobile society. And maybe I'm just old school enough to want to cling to the photos of my grands and great grands as if they still have something to share with my life today. It's a look back at my family's legacy.
We all take 'snapshots' ... even professionals take them. Photo editing programs on your phone are impressive.
But when it comes to wanting a professional photographer to capture a moment or help you look professional for business why not respect the investment? We aren't making millions and taking grand vacations anymore. The old guard of film photographers are gone... many quit when it became impossible to create the portraits they loved and make a living.
So... with that... I can't do it any cheaper and like myself in the morning! I believe in quality and hope you do too. Respectfully and warmly,
