Client vs. Customer
In reply to chkproductions, 6 months ago

I have worked for plenty of clients doing graphic arts projects, and I can assure you there's a huge difference between a client and a customer. You have to work with a client. A customer takes it or leaves it. The client usually has input into the design of the finished work, and he/she has to approve the final design before you finish the work and get the check.

I work with a client to create a custom T-shirt design. The person who buys a T-shirt with my own design on it is a customer.

Of course, the same person could fill both roles-- if somebody buys and likes one of my T-shirts and then wants me to design one for them, they become a client as well as a customer.

I'm assuming the same is true for photographers.
