I have been approached by a friend who'd really like me to take some pictures in a few weeks of her family. My first reaction was heck no, I'm not good enough yet, but we discussed it and we agreed that I would try. If it doesn't work out to both of our satisfaction (the results) she'll go to someone else. One thing I'm wondering about it is, she wants to pay me, but I am not in it, at least for her situation for the money. Should I only charge a minimal amount, to cover the cost of my gas, etc and use this is as both a learning situation and as a possible start of a portfolio? The other thing I'm wondering about is, does anyone have a good resource for me to learn about what I will need to know? I started to do some research tonight, but am hoping someone can guide me to a good resource.
