I have traveled all over the world and have been with some fantastic attendees as we photographed some of the most beautiful locations there. Many of these attendees are repeat clients. When we meet again, I ask what they did with the images from the last trip, and most of the time I am shocked by the answer of, “Well, I didn’t do anything with them.” Maybe they processed a few and put them on social media, but almost everyone didn’t make one print or even consider making a print project, collection, portfolio, or book.
I’m interested why workshop attendees don’t print.
Is it in line with the percentage of photographers who do not print? In other words, is there nothing special about these workshop attendees compared to other photographers?
Or is it more the kind of folks who tend to go on workshops with Kevin? Perhaps they have extremely busy schedules, and their primary motivation for going on the trips is the experience of doing photography among like-minded companions, rather than the actual photos that result? That’s a genuine question. Having not gone on such a workshop, I’m only speculating.
I don’t mean to focus on the workshop attendees per se (they have their own privacy), just to use this to start a conversation as to why people don’t print when you otherwise might expect them to.
As an aside, due to an overseas move, for 6 months I was without my own set of self-printed and framed prints. When they were finally delivered, what a difference it has made to have them in the house! Out went the awful photos and paintings the landlord had left up on the walls, and up went my own. Wow. I really didn’t expect it to make that much of an impact. But it does. It truly does.Re: Canon Pro 1000 printerReply #1 on: June 10, 2022 at 4:17 pm

Love the photos of your two cats Kevin. What a wonderful addition the photos make to your account of the site’s establishment, even if we do reflect on them with a bit of sadness too.Re: PhotoPXL / Rockhopper workshops carbon offsetsReply #4 on: July 29, 2019 at 6:02 pm
Thank you Kevin. Obviously the climate emergency is something far bigger than any one of us. But together we can make a difference. I look forward to seeing what your team comes up with. I am especially enthused by the idea that it is a good business move.
