What to say when your photographer charges too much

What to say when your photographer charges too much By Koren Reyes I received an email this week from a client I worked with 8 years ago. He wanted a digital negative I took of his infant baby girl so he could print a 16×20 gallery wrap canvas.

ImagingUSA in Phoenix, AZ
