So do you feel it’s ok to sell a professional service to people before you know how to provide the professional service?  Yes, photographers have to start somewhere, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with not knowing what you are doing, nothing wrong with learning, or with making sub par images, unless you are selling your sub standard services.

I personally think that a person should become a photographer first, before they start a business selling photography services.  This is not mean spirited, it’s common sense.  Yes, there wasn’t any online  social networks back in the day, but photographers have sought out and received critique sense the first camera was made.  I think it’s meaner and less productive and/or helpful to just say “you are good enough”, or to say nothing at all.
