I guess you are right, but I would still not charge someone for my photos unless I was really serious about starting a business, and I actually knew what I was doing. If I was only so-so, I wouldn’t charge them. I’d just do them for free until I got better and my name got out. That’s just my opinion. She’s not bad, but her first photos when she first started were really kinda bad. If she improves then good for her. I just kind of think she’s going a bit overboard now. For example, I’ve done a couple weddings for family and friends, and while I consider myself decent, I didn’t ask for money or charge them. Plus they came to me, I didn’t advertise myself. One of them gave me a gift card.
So I guess to each his own.
