Try explaining to Joe Soap and Jane Doe down the street why your photo with a DSLR is better than their photo taken with a cellphone. Some of those cellphones are pretty darned good - even in low light. I think you'll find that's where part of the problem is. The only photos people want these days are photos they can put up on Facebook.


What exactly is your product?

If your work doesn't stand out from a snapshot on a cell phone camera, WHY would someone hire you? Aren't you the imaging expert? If I were to hire you, what would I be paying you to do?

No really, what would I be paying you to do? I'd like to know.
