Well, it's all go at the moment, I've actually had to turn down a couple of bookings because I've got too much work on, that is the problem for every small business, it's either feast or famine.
Last time I wrote it was a tale of woe, well, the printer is still faulty and I have lost loads of money, but the lens issue has moved on in unexpected ways. The Norwegian purchaser returned the lens, well he said it was my lens, but unfortunately the serial number did not match that shown on Jacobs invoice when they sold it to me. Ebay have refunded the guy's money and despite assurances appear to have done nothing. The post office have refunded my money based on the breakage and on being told about the fraud perpetrated by the purchaser, have told me to return their money if Ebay give me back the refund that they made. A generous offer, which leads me to recommend their service and insurance.
Based on comments received from clients and my own research in February I increased my prices from February, I am still considerably cheaper then most of the competition, but I feel happy charging what I do - £10.00 for one print and £18.00 for two (with discounts increasing with additional photos purchased). I now also offer low resolution downloads for social media use. Some questions that I've just put out on Facebook are in relation to possible changes to the service, offering 10 x 8 ins prints rather than the normal 8 or 9 x 6 ins, these would as normal be put into card mounts. I have just ordered another batch of mounts, these are from a new company, but appear at least to be of better quality and for the small increase in cost are well worth the expense.
