    They are the one who decide about the blur, I always send them photos first and ask them if they'd like more blur or not.

    I think Unpopular made a point. You'll probably need to find a way to have a professional looking studio background rather than the appearance of a hotel room. Your skill level needs to be able to compete with other photographers in your area so it might help to see what other boudoir and portrait photographers are showing on their websites and offering to clients. (I did a quick search and looked at a couple of sites, there's some competition there that are really good.) And if you're portfolio building probably instead of young women who have a concern about faces showing you'll need to find models who would do some shoots as TFP (in trade, photos for modeling).

    You might need to think about how you're conducting your work as a professional photographer, doing photos for champagne etc. seems like just for fun or a hobby but after spending money to upgrade equipment and getting a business license you might need to think about what's next, how to move forward as a pro photographer. You could look at American Society of Media Photographers or PPA; they're geared to pro photographers in the US but ASMP has webinars at no cost, you don't have to be a member - it's under Business as Unusual, the next one isn't til late January, there's a different topic each month. Or maybe even look at Photo Magazine | Professional Photography Industry News and Resources which covers the photography business.

    I'm specializing in escorts photography, there isn't a lot in my Area, i'm not worried and I know who is my competition, I've met them, friends had shoot with them, I did shoot with them...

    I'm not doing photoshoot for fun anymore, well I don't have the time. Everybody have to start somewhere... Now things are changing, girls have experienced photoshoots with me, they know my work and are booking....

    I'm doing really well. I guess it helps to be an escort, girls trust me.

    Thank for the suggestion, but I found background boring, it's not my style or the look i'm looking for. I'll keep to do what I do, it's popular I just need to keep improving.

    Thanks for the links :)

    Glad you've found a niche...in my experience, most successful pros do exactly that--they find a niche and focus on that. And I understand the comment about shooting in studio but for your clients, a bed or bedroom or hotel room works perfectly (as long as you can get a room that will function effectively for shoots. Just a thought--some hotels or B&Bs will trade space for publicity shots. So if you shot some of their space for a website or brochure, they might comp you a room in the middle of the day (between check-out and check-in). Chains would do this but if it's an individually owned space, that's a possibility.
