"Don't be known as the good cheap photographer" -My (Current) Last Boss
Probably was the realest, most embarrassing sentence someone has shared with me over the past 5 years. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating but that's not the point. The point is, when my boss heard my dreams, saw my work, he led with this sentence, and I zoned out. I was confused, shocked but it felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.
No matter who you are as a photographer, people was a discount. They want a sale, they want something cheap, if not free. (Same can really be said for every profession). People will literally brag about your talents and then question why you charge so much. The flip side of being a photographer? You will always see another photographer who is equally or LESS talented than you are, charging more. Literally I know photographers who are less talented than me, charging double. Am I upset? NOPE...its not their fault im less ambitious.
THE TIME HAS COME! August 1st, business will change. My prices, already reflected on my website, will increase. I'm finally in a "space" where I'm comfortable with the possibility of less clients and work, but being paid fairly!
