Social sharing vs. High resolution downloads. What's the difference? Why does one cost more?

The big event has taken place, the photographer has the images ready and now is the time to make those hard decisions on which photos to get...but wait, why is one download only $5 and the other is over $40? What's the difference between "Off the Camera" and an "Edited Image"?

As photographers we want to capture as many memories and moments for our clients as possible. This is why some galleries have literally thousands of images in them. However, with every image captured is a process to get it from the camera to the gallery. It only takes a fraction of a second to take the photo, but it may take 1 to 5 minutes per image to get it ready to post in a gallery. If you were to do the math, a 3 minute average per image times the hundreds or thousands of images that will arrive in the gallery adds up quickly creating countless hours the photographer must invest just to get the photos processed and loaded into the gallery for viewing. These images in our galleries are called "Off the Camera".


On top of the processing all the "off the Camera" photos receive, we do offer additional editing that corrects additional details, color grading, soft focus, item removal, etc to create the absolute best image quality we can make it. This process takes anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes per image pending on what needs to be done. This extensive process takes years of experience, top notch software, and all the tools to do the job correctly. These images will be in the "Edited Images" section. If you have images in the "Off the Camera" section and would like us to edit the image, simply submit a request with the event name and image number with a basic description of the image to alexandermartinphoto@gmail.com and we'll be happy to edit the photo as requested. There is a $20 editing fee per image due at the time of the request and all edits will be delivered within 72 hours of completing the request and payment.
