In virtually every Facebook photography forum there’s always a running thread started by a photographer questioning something not covered in the contract with a client. Usually, the client has asked for something a little out of the ordinary. Often it’s a question about attire, wondering what to wear at a black-tie event when you’re the photographer. Then there are those who want to rant and insult each other as well as their clients, as if the forum had a code of confidentiality.
I don’t want this to sound like a rant. It’s meant to be a check-off list to remind you about a few things that help define being a professional photographer.
Being a professional photographer carries a huge responsibility. Recognize the trust your clients and their families put in your skill set. They deserve the very best images, and the power to do that is entirely in your hands!
