    So I got contacted about shooting for the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of commerce this thursday and I told them ok $600 for a full day regular stuff. I mean that's cheap to start out right? So then they say they want completely exclusive rights to use the images and I said well it doesn't really work that way, they are my images and I get to use them. They wouldn't budge on the issue so I said fine how about $1000 instead and you can have the rights and they said it was too steep. I mean am I wrong here or are they frickin high?

    Often it boils down to salesmanship and negotiating skills.

    $1,000 for a full day's shooting AND full rights to the photos is BS. Too many businesses are trying to get photographers to work for free, continuously devaluing our trade. Stand your ground.
