He is ONLY still in high school and he his parents pays for everything he wants. He is charging $50-150 in senior pictures, $500 for quince’s, and $1500 for weddings?! and he says “it pays the bills.” WHAT BILLS? He’s in high school!
and he thinks he going somewhere in life with his pictures, I don’t think so.
If there’s even a chance he’d show you up on any photography, then you might have an issue yourself. Yes his images are terrible and they look like he uses an instagram filter for every photo. Hopefully, he’ll stick with it and maybe someday be good. He should not be charging, obviously. OP, can you post your portfolio?
He’s not too terrible for a high school kid starting out shooting. Getting practice early! And he’s also trying to figure out what to do in the years to come. If anything, he should get professional support and honest, valuable, critique if he wants.
