You want high quality work? Pay your Artists!

This is absolutely how we professionals, photographers, makeup artists, models, hair & clothing stylists, feel!
Our work deserves to be valued just like everyone else's. You wouldn't work for pictures- particularly of non-professionals, and I can assure you random people in photographs will not add value to my port. I work at this full time, it is how I, and many others pay our bills. We cannot work for free, unless it's going in a major magazine, or something of the caliber of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, and guess what? Those artists are paid too!

Seen in the same reversed format it seems a little ridiculous that anyone would even ask this doesn't it?

  1. Couldn't have said it better.
    We provide a service that has to be paid for somehow. WE use up money to pay for our kit, transport, and our own skill.
