Re: photographer referral fees?

I have never expected a referral fee, nor have I paid one. If I couldn't do a job, or didn't want an assignment, I would just refer to the best people I know, and I do it for the client's best interests, not anyone else's. The referred photographer has earned the job through his ability and character as I know it. It certainly isn't for financial gain to me. It builds client confidence as well.

Referrals to me are usually for the same reason, I am known for certain specialties so I often get the referral. It makes everyone look better. When I retire, my referrals will be to whomever has the courage to take over the business.
