A lot of professional photographers struggle to find a balance between work and friendship—especially when friends played a crucial role in portfolio building in the first place. Today on the podcast, I’m talking about how to work with friends as a professional photographer in a way that avoids awkwardness and makes sure that you’re not giving aways hours of free services that you don’t really feel comfortable giving away.
I’m also talking about when I do give away free photos and how I do it in a way that doesn’t take over the time that I’ve set aside to spend on paid projects.
Be sure to access the note I send my own friends when they ask for photos. Feel free to adapt this note for your own use.
