I've recently been in the market for a family photography sessions and as such I've had the usual sponsored Facebook ads come up. One was a competition to win a $250 gift card with a local photography place. It's been a week or two since I entered and just got the news that I've "won" one of the gift cards.
My gut feel is that this 'win' is a gimmick to get you in and then they sell you overpriced photo products. This is strongly indicated by the statement on their website that "most people spend between $1000 - $3000 on their portraits". They do not provide a price list online.
Their process is: planning meeting (where you are provided with the price list), photo session, followed by the ordering session.
I'm just wondering if anyone has had experience with photography studios that operate like this? Has anyone had a similar gimmick and gone through with it? - if so was it worth it or did you end up spending heaps over the gift card amount?
