The business of photography

The article was helpful, however, I seem to practice this already. I am not a fulltime wedding photographer, but I do find myself photographing other members of the family of the wedding party. My business has been great simply by word of mouth. I agree with the idea that lowering your prices loses your credibility as a professional. I have encountered that situation.
This article will benefit others interested in a career as a photographer.
Thanks for sharing.

Informative

That is a great article. We started with nature photography. We had to branch out our interests to keep afloat. Landscape photography can only carry you so far, until you are well known, so we ventured to portraiture and are doing quite well. It is a competitive profession though. We charge on the high end and get serious clientelle. The cheaper one goes, the more the client seems to demand from you. Thanks for the info you gave in your article though. Just affirms what we have already heard and experienced.

Re: The Business of Photography

I concentrate more on what message the picture itself is sending (subject, emotions, etc) more than I do the overall quality of the picture. Most of my first pictures with the Rebel G came out really grainy but still impressed my very nit-picky relatives. They were impressed at what I took the picture of, not how the picture turned out. Here is the post I made following my grandma's 80th birthday where I put one of the pictures up for critique (but didn't get much of a response) http://www.photographycorner.com/for...ad.php?t=94092 This picture was one of three out of 36 total that my family loved so much that they wanted it to be at the very front of the family photo album. The other two were a close-up of the cake before it was cut and the smile on my grandma's face when the cake was brought over to her.
