I really don’t understand this. There was a poll on a photog facebook group asking everybody’s experience level: beginner, intermediate, pro, etc. Several of the people who described themselves as beginner had a their employment listed as owner of a photo business. I wonder if they went to visit a doctor if they would stay if the doctor said they had never been to medical school and had been interested in medicine for a few months.
One of the beginners has a website. Her marketing strategy seems to be providing quality photos at an affordable price. I would dispute the use of the word quality and even at her low prices, she is still over charging. If she took my photo, I would not pay for her photos in fact she would have to pay me to accept them.
