  • I live in the nw suburbs of Chicago and I have a part time photo business that I legitimized last year. I decided to stay as a sole proprietor for the time being. I don't have a lot of assets at ...
  • I am one of those part time photographers who has a full time career outside of pro photography, though I am art teacher and it leaks over all the time. That being said, my business is legitimate, ...
  • I haven't had this experience. The file name is the title as far as I can see. If your image has a file name when you upload it (and it does), then that is the title of the image. If you want the ...
  • I'm the OP, and I was okay with $32/hour on this job. That's all I have to say about that. -Mark
  • Thank you all for your excellent feedback. Much appreciated. I didn't know that Costco had the ICC profiles available. I'll look into that for situations where I'm in a pinch. thanks again! Mark
  • Created questions Good Prints on a deadline?
    Hey guys and gals, At least half of my part-time pro business is geared toward digital photo restoration. I am a good portrait photographer, but I am great with image editing with Lightroom and ...
  • Replied in Do you care?
    I find this whole conversation shallow and pedantic. - Peter Griffin
  • This was my thinking. My concern is five years down the line when I can't even open old files unless I'm a subscriber to Adobe, which means they can jack their monthly rate as high as they want ...
  • Replied in Depends
    I think some of customers think that if you give over the the files unedited, they should be saving money due to your not putting in the time to edit the images. The truth is, it will cost me more ...
  • I would certainly be fine releasing the RAW files if the client had these type of needs, where I know a professional would be color correcting, etc. It is when I'm shooting a standard wedding, ...
  • You're reading too far into it. I'm not talking about a proprietary ownership of the image necessarily. This isn't a copyright issue. It's a reputation issue. All I'm saying is that the product ...
  • Are you honestly saying we should just resort to turning over our half-baked images because someone is going to mess them up anyway? If that is the case, what business advantage do I have to making ...
  • I don't really see it that way. I would never give up my raw files because my name is on the work and I need to have quality control on what is released to the client with my name on it. I know ...
  • I'm assuming that all of your Photoshop CC files are standard PSD documents, which means that they can still be opened in older Photoshop versions or in Photoshop Elements. Do you foresee that when ...
  • So hows the Adobe CC thing working for you guys? I'm still using CS4 because I own it and it works for my needs at a certain level. The only thing I would like to have is Content-Aware utilities. ...
  • Sorry, but did someone in this thread suggest anything about "waiting for the phone to ring?" I was reading back, but I didn't see what you were responding to.
  • I'm going for it, but it's not going to be easy by any means. My full time income earns me roughly 70k a year, and I'm happy doing what I do. I love doing photography as well. I have been doing my ...
  • Have you considered going with anything other than your name? I did what you did for quite a while and went with "my own name" photography. Then I got more serious and decided to go legit and ...
  • When I was in your position, I upgraded to a gently used 5D mark ii. Just make sure you're aware of it's prior usage and number of accuations. Yes, the mark iii and 6D are there, but solid pros ...
