So many of you have to work with photographers a lot and they (myself included) can make things a lot more complicated than they need to be. So in this episode, I want to talk about photo-speak and all the things photographers do that can be a little confusing, daunting, and frustrating for you as the client.

Today, I am digging something out of my filing cabinet that I have had for a handful of years. It’s a contract from 2016 that a client of ours sent us. The reason she sent us this contract that she received from a magazine is because it raised a lot of red flags. Let’s dissect this contract together to help you with future contracts that may come your way.

On today’s show, I want to talk about what happens when someone tries to stand in your way. It could’ve been an industry competitor or someone close to you who tried to push you away from the work that you wanted to do.

I was reflecting on a conversation I was having with a client the other day. They were wanting to shift the services that they were providing to their clients. However, in their eyes, there was a problem; no one was hiring them for the services they wanted to provide. This is “the chicken and the egg” scenario and we are diving into it in today’s episode.

As a new father I took a few weeks off for paternity leave and when I got back into the office, I felt this weird sense of guilt and divided responsibility between my son who is at home, and myself who is sitting in my office. I realized that this is something that so many entrepreneurs are struggling with; parental guilt of dividing their time up between our business and our family.

I was thinking about the Friends episode where Phoebe was helping Monica do her catering job. At a funeral they were catering, they were trying to find the right time to give the client the bill. This can be really awkward, especially as an entrepreneur. How do you make the transition from doing the services to, “Okay, this is the bill.”

In this episode of Beyond the Image, host James Patrick discusses when it is okay for creatives to work for free.

The word "free" is perhaps the biggest F-word in all the creative industry. Artists, photographers, designers loathe the times when a client approaches them and expects free services.

This show discusses the three times when it is acceptable, and even encouraged, for a photographer to work for free.

Be sure to subscribe for future episodes discussing how you develop your brand, market your brand and further profit from your brand as an artist! Episodes will feature interviews with creatives as well as clients themselves discussing what they look for when hiring artists.
