Forum Update

Howard Carlson forwarded the following information from Classic Car Closeups that we thought would be of interest to some members.   

From Butch at Classic Car Closeups - My pricing is $150 per hour for the shoot. During that hour, I'll shoot at least 60-80 photos of the car.  Once I'm back in my office, I'll reduce the number down to about 20 or so and send them to the owner.  The owner can select up to 6 photos for me to do the final fine tuning edits and I'll send the final edits back to the owner as a file.  If they want prints, I can do that too and the price varies based on the size.  I can print anything from a 4x6 to a 13x19.  I have a high end Canon photo printer so the prints are excellent.
