Re: Professional Photographers - Free pics for friends?

I don't have a problem informally shooting for friends or family members in a casual situation. However, most of them know that I make my living in this business and they would never expect me to cover an event or do a sitting for free. When I'm not "on the clock" I shoot what I feel like. Often it is candid shots of friends. Yes, I will oblige if someone asks me to take a shot and I'll also email a low res if they ask for it. Often, I will mark and print a candid and gift it to the person or people in the shot. Friends are friends and family is family. This is true unless you work for them. Then you are ALWAYS an employee.
