i do photography as a paying hobby. i am not at all expensive for weddings and portraits. i do not need the money so often i do deals with people on a tight budget. i enjoy what i do. but i have read recently that cheap means rubbish. is that what people really think? i really don't need the money so should i be forced to charge a higher price for people to take me seriously? if i wanted someone to take photos for me i would only be interested in looking at their portfolio and seeing if they fitted my requirements then i would discuss price. i would not book someone just because they were expensive and then assume that they must be good. discuss??
