Photographers, are you wanting to make a career out of taking photos? Models,families,seniors,weddings, or anything that involves people is a way to start earning compensation. We have all noticed a trend in the community of people reaching out wanting us to shoot them for free. Today I am empowering all photographers to charge something for your work. Keep in mind, this does not apply to a photographer who just bought a dslr recently. This is to the photographers who have put in work to be able to deliver great image quality time and time again. I know I know, some will say it is just a hobby. But the reality is models especially know there is always a photographer that will give free images to them. This has to stop today!!! Know your worth and charge something. Yes I know it is a scary thing to ask for at first, but believe me the better you get the easier it becomes. If everyone puts their foot down and says enough. Then all photographers will benefit financially for all the thousands that they have spent on gear, lighting, education etc. There is no reason not to charge what you feel your time is worth to complete strangers..Let today be the day you say no more. It can start with the subjects paying for your gas and time until you work out a system of packages. If you are doing a personal shoot with other professionals that benefits everyone involved? Then go for it!! Anything else, know your worth:) Happy Shooting..
