Why a Professional Photographer will not give you all unedited images on USB
Why a Professional Photographer will not give you all unedited images on USB.
Why a Professional Photographer will not give you all unedited images on USB?
Have you ever wondered why a Professional Photographer will not give you all unedited images on USB?
This is something that can be an issue with any type of photography, but often comes to the surface with Wedding Photography.
This is something asked of us many times.
As a client you may be thinking, we have paid for our wedding photography, we own everything taken on that day?
You may also be thinking you do not need the images to be edited?
You have seen the photographers work and it looks great as it is.
You may also be thinking you are not ‘fussy’ so unedited ones will be fine.
Two Issues: Unedited Images and All Images
So there are two issues here.
- Unedited Images – no professional photographer puts out images that are unedited, ok I cant speak for everyone, but I would bet my camera’s that very few do. Even if its just a case of adjusting the brightness, colours etc. Most of the images we see everywhere nowadays have been edited, so it lulls us into a false sense of ‘this is how the images looks straight out of camera’. Any artist (and yes photography is also an art) wants to present their images in their best light, so regardless of your feelings about the images looking ‘fine’, most artist would not want their work in any other place than on their personal hard drive, before it is edited.
- All images on a USB – All images of any event very rarely given, one very simple reason is that each job is priced on the time spent on the shoot as well as time spent editing afterwards. A professional photographer will have factored in time for all the images to tell the story. If there are 20 of the same scene, they will choose the best ones to edit, as part of your story.
Telling the story
Asking for all unedited images is like asking you to present a report to your Director at work, in all versions, with the mistakes, paragraphs you deleted, wording that you decided against and the bits that your colleagues told you were just a no no.
Each Wedding Photographer has a process in taking images, putting together to best ones and telling your story. Think about the last film you watched that you were engrossed in. What was great about the film? what captured your attention? Now imagine that instead of the watching the completed film, you get to see the version with the numerous takes of each scene, the ones that didn’t make it, the ones where the actors messed up lines, where the lighting was off, where the camera shook, where the audio guy didn’t get the boom arm microwave close enough. The film would probably look very different, and would not have captured your attention in the same way. In fact it could end up quite boring.
This is what you pay a professional wedding photographer to do. To create your story. To capture everything needed to tell it. To take out all the ‘out-takes’. To put it together as a completed piece of work. If this is done properly, you will remember your wedding day as a picture of perfection!
You need not see the poses where your eyes were half closed, and you look partly as though you were falling sleep on your big day. The poses that show a bit too much or the arms you were never comfortable with, or where the flash did not fire.
Photographers also take many more images than they need in every scenario. So while your finished album for example may have two beautiful images of you smiling away while you are walking down the aisle, they would have carefully been chosen from many more.
Seeing two images from the same set will give you the wow factor, imagine seeing 50, a millisecond apart from each other, by the time you got to the 20th, that feeling would be very different.
We are not the only ones to say this.
Here are a few other articles saying the exact same thing.
Ownership of Images
Many people are very wrongly informed about the ownership of images. An artist still owns the copyright for all of the images that they have created. Even if the images feature you, and your event. Most Photographers will supply your wedding images with what is called a ‘Licence to Reproduce’ The British Institute of Portrait Photographers give a nice explanation here. So you can still print and use them, but they will still be owned by the photographer.
So before you take to social media to rubbish your photographer, sometimes we act out of sincere ignorance.
That being said, of course you will find SOME photographers that will offer you all of that, and more.

Commercial Photography – Book Covers
As a commercial photographer in Birmingham, we produce images for companies. We decided to test our film skills by entering this national competition to provide commercial photography for Penguin Books.
Penguin Books run an annual competition to create a new front cover for a book that is being revamped, everything had to be shot of film (everyone who knows me know I hate this) Film takes too long for me, the results take too long to see, developing the film, waiting in the dark counting the minutes, leaving them to dry, scanning in the negatives is also tedious, as is ensuring they have no dust on them.
Having to scan them in them in to photoshop them, somehow seems wrong, but I do not have the dark room skills or patience to dodge, burn and lighten manually. Taking all of this into consideration, I think I did well to produce and submit so many!
Delivering the same project in digital would have taken at least a quarter of the time! Yes, I hear all the arguments about the quality film provides, and the photographers out there that are excited by having to sit in a dark room counting the minutes to see the fruits of their labour, but personally digital is still for me!
Whether you make cakes, or full meals, we can offer your food product photography to the highest standards.

There are many things one need to keep in mind when doing the food photography, like, the lights, space, how hot food should be to take the right click, as well. how it should be presented in a plate, so that it looks more tempting and appealing.
Catering Companies Rebranding
Images for the rebranding of a local caterer.
While doing the rebranding photography for the following catering company, we covered various sectors, like event photography, commercial photography, macro photography, event photography, interior photography, model photography, food photography and everything covered by our professional photographers, who made sure, they don’t miss any thing, and the essence of the event.
Photographs are a kind of proof to let people know, how successful particular event was so that every one can refer them back, as and when needed. Also, one can use the professionally clicked photographs for various event and literature to be produced, then either it is for the marketing purposes or for the company references only.
We are more than happy to to do on-site as well as off-site photoshoot. Till our customers our happy, and we can go to any length to show our services, how good and professional we are to prove our point. We have also done photography for the construction hoardings of the same organisation, as well for many more other companies.
Our photographs can be used as website images as well, and if needed we can change the resolution of the same, so that they are not to heavy for the website to open them, otherwise as we all know, it slows down the website, which means clients run away from your website. So based, on the clients requirement we always make the changes and provide alternatives to our clients so that they are always happy. As we always want to have happy customers.
We have done photography for caterer and many other different organisations, as and when the work comes to us. We have also done some photography work for Aston Villa Football Club.
For the following project we made sure we can provide macro photographers, who can pay attention to various details which makes a big difference all together in the pictures.
