- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
It is based on negotiation.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I really like to hear their needs about the projects and know their ideas about it. After that we can discuss and share our thoughts. Also, I am very flexible to give them their files.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
There are a lot of great photographers with their unique vision out there, so you need to find a person with whom you'll feel comfortable. It's quite an intimate experience to be photographed and trust is a factor that cannot be stressed enough. Also, I recommend you spend some time reviewing the work and don't be shy about asking questions throughout the entire process. Timidity is not a virtue in the artistic process. Finally, it's important to be understanding of the photographer's needs since it is a collaboration at its essence; everything from pricing, to time commitment, and beyond, should be plainly assessed and confirmed for the best possible experience for both parties.
