I got my first paying job a couple of months providing pictures of Los Angeles County to decorate an office room. They needed 12 pictures and after our meeting they selected 10 pictures I already had and wanted me to photograph 2 additional locations.
The easiest part of the job was the photography and the printing. My biggest stumbling block in the entire process was my lack of confidence when it came to pricing my work. When I was ask how much I was charging I said such a lowball amount the client was even shocked. I was lucky that I was working with an amazing person and they realized I was selling myself short and increased the amount and I agreed to that price.
Once I got past the pricing stumbling block, I photograph the final 2 locations and submitted the pictures to the client for the final selections. Once the final selections were made, I printed each photo on a Epson R3000 on Red River San Gabriel SemiGloss Fiber fine art paper and delivered them.
The client was ecstatic and has sent the pictures off to their framer.
This job really boost my confidence and made me realize that I need to stop selling myself short and put my work out there for people to see. I look forward to my next job so I can continually grow as a photographer.
