Business advice requested
Jan 31, 2007

I am employed by a company as their Sr. Graphic Designer/Photographer/Retoucher. A few days into the new job I brought in my photo gear (the provided equipment was laughable at best) to achieve the professional results I needed, and now it is almost expected that I bring it in everyday for use in the office. In just a few months I've already added some 500+ shutter actuations.

Clearly I am greatly increasing the wear and tear on my personal equipment, and so I'm wondering how to best handle this. It is not likely they would purchase comparable gear if I chose to stop bringing it in; and doing so would likely cause a rift, not to mention it would greatly reduce the level of quality that I've come to deliver on a day-to-day basis.

Reading between the lines, do any of you have thoughts on how I can cease being taken advantage of in a way that will not negatively reflect on me?

The moment you cease to learn is the moment you cease to exist.
