Everyone has to start some place in professional photography. It takes time to build up a good portfolio and word of mouth referrals.
As I will be transferring out of the Middle East later this year where I was in a more of a Staff Photographer role and plan to do more freelance type work in the US in the future. I look to where I might be finding my next photo gig.
Although I have no first hand experience I am curious to know of others good and bad experiences with using Craigslist. No doubt CL is the low end of professional photography but I see opportunities where it could lead to repeat business in some of the adds. There are also many instances of people wanting photos an entire wedding or special event and expect to only pay 50 bucks or even free.
I was wondering if some POTN members could share their past experiences (good or bad) with Craigslist ads.
