While you get your "foot in the door", you are also establishing your rates and terms.

I see many new photographers try to get their foot in the door by working at a deep discount, or for free. The problem is that the customer learns to think of that photographer as the deep discount guy.  If the photographer asks for higher rate, the client goes elsewhere.  After all, if they are going to pay a normal rate, they may as well hire someone who is good enough to command that rate.
