the Gigantic competition went seriously awry. As a result, the image of the price varies now very much in different parts of Helsinki.

Why is the school photo prices vary?

in most parts of the county to schools or parents ' associations fit the descriptions directly in the photography business with the entrepreneur.

the entrepreneur can price the product as it wants to.

the entrepreneur provides to the price in addition to image affect the price very much also the so-called arrangement fee.

It is the graph the payment of the fact that he can describe the child to the school premises.

– in General, the arrangement fee is € 1-3 per image to be, told Finland's largest photographic company ceo Petri Karjalainen .

at times, the arrangement fee can be very much more.

Some schools or parents ' associations, they like to collect money for school activities arrangement fees in the form of. These extreme examples are even more than ten euros per child. These are quite exceptional cases, Karjalainen said.

the arrangement fee is put into every shot of the prices.

in Practice, it is added to the class photo and portrait prices, because their products are purchased the most.

Managing director Petri Karjalainen said that the arrangement of the premium amount varies from different schools. / YLEJärjestelypalkkiot are often thousands of euros

Schools or parental associations levied by the arrangement fees vary according to what the graph agreed with.

in Other cases, the schools 'parents' association the parents have been given free for their children's school pictures.

"it would be good that the arrangement fee would be displayed on the invoice"

the image network managing director Petri Karjalainen said that the arrangement of premium payment is the most common.

in Practice, many of the family doesn't know to pay arrangement fees to the school or parents ' association, because they do not have any mention of the image of the invoice.

Photography business entrepreneur should be in favour of openness.

– it would be good that the arrangement fee would be reflected on the invoice. Now it is hidden pictures, prices, the ceo of Karelian said.

the image network is proposed sometimes the school principal, that the payment would be displayed on invoices when the image status, the families would get to know the fee and its magnitude.

This idea is not enthusiastic principals.

– in a few cases has this been presented, but schools do not like the idea.

Sometimes, money talks completely what photography try to get to the school.

– the majority of schools will select the photographer, who has taken wonderful pictures or for whom the service has worked well. But in some cases, nothing else matters than how large the compensation of the descriptions comes, Karjalainen said.

Heinonen surprised when Yle telling her how schools and parents ' associations requested the arrangement fees for the photography business entrepreneurs.

– Oh this is? Well all the more reason we have to update the recommendations at a fast pace, Heinonen said.

the executive Director says the school can not collect such a arrangement fees, which are calculated according to how many students are in school.
