Based on your quality, experience, everything else you bring to the table (I mean to the studio) irrespective of the theme.

AI am blatantly frank and honest! But please remember photography is subjective and opinions differ as does the definition of beauty!

And above 21 years old please. All others get ignored.

Now I jest havta find a client who agrees with ya  .  .  .  wink  Thanks for the look  .  .  .  pretty close to reality when I was out in the market place a little more  .  .  .  I found that construction, and engineering projects paid the best (but a little more strenuous); followed by table top, product work; then fashion, catalog, ad and online; followed by bike/car mag stuff  .  .  .  digital, and online really changed the geography of commercial work, less technically perfect work is required, and there's a whole lot more people shootin'  .  .  .

I actually only shoot TF right now .. I was just curious on your opinion - but that is higher than I planned to charge when I do start doing so.
