These $50 shoot and burn fauxtographers are catering to the Walmart crowd. These are people who are in the bottom of the middle class/upper lower class. They don’t have the knowledge to understand what good photography is because they live on cheap, disposable products, and $0.59 ramen. 98% of the fauxtographers are not registered as a business nor do they pay taxes. Additionally, these Faux’s are generally spouses who don’t rely on their photography income to put Mac-n-cheese on the table. This is why they can afford to only charge $50.
If any photographer is concerned about their business being undercut then perhaps they should provide a better service and quality that moves them into an upper customer tier. I’m absolutely mind boggled that photographers are worried about their business because of a $50 fauxtographer.
