I think I have found my new favourite place in the USA. San Francisco is full of quirky streets, hills, buildings, the Bay and most of all, character! It’s such a hip place rich in personality. There’s so many diverse things to see and do, I don’t know where to start. For one thing, with all the colour and charisma, it’s not only a tourist’s dream location, it’s a photographer’s paradise.
I get asked more and more often and I see posts online about how much to charge for photography work and images. I cringe when I see people confessing to doing work for nothing and even I have been asked to work for no fee with the compensation of a “Free holiday”. I know this can sound really tempting, and a lot of people jump at the opportunity. However, before you go signing your rights away, consider that firstly, you are ruining the business for people who are doing this as a fulltime job, to pay actual real bills and living expenses as well as take into consideration what you are actually worth.
