Methinks Amanda should provide us with some business tuition!
charging those rates, sorry, not the person to be teaching biz skills. You can't make a profit off those numbers, better to shoot for free until you can charger proper money
What? The photos on the website are horrible and IMO she should not be charging people yet.
Harsh but honestly I think there is a lot of learning needed before charging
This entire thread is a perfect example of the negative tone that has plagued this Forum. Someone reaches out for help, and they get sarcasm back.
I think there is a neg tone on this forum, I've had it happen to myself. But this thread wasn't "I went to the zoo and shoot forgot my card" this was a session with a client, free or not free if you call the person you are shooting a "client" it's biz. And it's a stupid mistake and not having a back up card yet having a website and biz is silly, should have a back up everything.
Look where this thread was posted. It's in the business section. The OP represented herself as having done this on the job (charging $0 or $1000 is moot IMO. She represented herself as a professional). The shock at the responses received is a bit like dressing up like a seal, swimming to Seal Island, and being shocked when you get eaten by a great white... What in the world did everyone expect?
I don't mind keeping the kid gloves on but there comes a point when it's ridiculous... If someone wants to say "if you have to ask this question, you have no business representing yourself as a knowledgeable professional.." yes it's harsh, but it's true. While it's not helping her immediate predicament, in this case, I think it's the best advice anyone could give.
We'd be remiss if we did not point out that she's grossly in over her head. Otherwise, we're nice in this thread and have to offer our sympathies in her next when she's ranting about being sued...
+1 on this one.
