More often then not, clients ask for all the digital files to download. Photographers, on the other hand, don't like to give it away, specially if you don't pay the price for it. Why is that? It's very simply!
Good photographers shoot in RAW format. RAW is a file format that captures all image data recorded by the sensor when you take a photo.When shooting in a format like JPEG image information is compressed and lost. Because no information is compressed with RAW you’re able to produce higher quality images, as well as correct problem images that would be unrecoverable if shot in the JPEG format.
These type of files need to be edited. So even though the deal with the photographer is to have "unedited" photos, this is technically not true. A good photographer ALWAYS edit his/her photos.
A good photographer, also, is very proud of his/her product. From the very basic photo session at your living-room, to the high notch model session at the most expensive location, the eye of the photographer try to see your soul, your true you, through the camera viewer. Anyone can shoot a camera, but not everyone can take pictures.
