Kirk Tuck, an excellent professional photographer in Austin, reports that “no single commercial client has requested a print from me in nearly ten years. None.” That says a lot.
I rarely print my photographs. I am content to view them on my MacBook Pro, my iPad and my iPhone. When I want to share photographs, I do it online.
The only printer I own is an inexpensive Brother laser printer I use to print out shipping labels for online returns and the occasional odd job. I can’t imagine buying an expensive printer. If I needed to print an image, I would use a lab.
