Starting a photography career, help please.
Jan 12, 2006

Happy new year everyone!

I'm always an amateur photographer, I take pictures for friends and relatives as well as local charities.

Recently I was asked to photograph a 400 people party in a hotel and print the pictures on the spot. This is my first paid job and I really want to do it well.

I haven't done anything like this and I really need your kind support. Any advice will be appreciated!

First, my gear: I have two 20Ds, EF 16-35 and EF 70-200 IS, one 580EX
I think I need to buy a set of studio flash. I don't have any knowledge on this.

Second, I need to buy a printer. I will be printing 8X6 or A4 sized pictures. Which printer should I buy. How many pictures can I print with a set of cartridges? Should I buy a second set of cartridges?

Last but not least, how should I charge for this kind of work?

Thank you very much. Please help me.
