“Who will be viewing my boudoir photos in the printing process? I don’t want just anyone seeing them.”
This is a great question and one that women (and photographers) sometimes forget to think about. It is common practice to protect sexy photos in password-protected galleries or other private safety measures. However, many forget that the next step is often unprotected and viewable to whomever is printing the photos or album.
Now, some ladies and some photographers may not care who views their sensual images. That is up to them. For me, many ladies and their husbands, they care deeply about who is viewing these images throughout the boudoir process.
Below is a diagram showing the normal printing process that most photographers use in getting images printed when a client orders them.
See the problem? What good is it to hire a trusted photographer for your private images only to have “God only knows whom” viewing, printing, and packaging your product? Why even strive for privacy in the first place?
Unfortunately (even when asked), most professional print labs/book binders will not guarantee that only women will be involved throughout the boudoir printing process.
As a intimate boudoir photographer, I see it as my responsibility to protect the privacy of the ladies who have entrusted their images to me. This means that (in good conscious) I can not send my clients’ photos to just any print lab. Even clients printing through Target, Walmart, Shutterfly, etc can’t guarantee who will be printing them.
This was a problem!
In an effort to solve this problem, I do all my on in-house photo printing! I have purchased a top-of-the-line professional printer in my studio/office. My clients now have the option of having their professional photos and books printed by their photographer!
