are you talking about things like standards for submission or like setting up a business to do portraits and things where you're selling prints in standards sizes?

Industry standards or practices are the business is done between pros in related fields. In every area of professional photography, certain daily practices are the general rules, thee are essentially practices and standards which are expected in the industry. I'm not aware of any official list and it would probably be impossible to so. For example, when a commercial or fashion shooter does tests for a model or an agency, certain things are expected by everyone involved. A certain level of quality of expected. That commercial/fashion photographer will do the test free or at a significantely reduced cost to the model. That in a test (different from TFP) there is usualy no paperwork, such as releases. It is expected the model and/or agency and photogrpher can can use them in marketing, but not to directly generate income. Another 'industry standard is that everyone involved will appear at a shoot on time and ready to work. An industry 'given' is that working models will no deal directly with agency clients and that neither the model nor a photographer will try to cut out the agency. Another is that a model will not make a major change in her appearance without discussing it with her booker. Another is that a verbal agreement made on the phone is as binding as a written, signed and notarized contract. Another is that while any and all photographers can have an off day, a certain level of performnce and quality is expected.

For example, I just made a large (and lucrative) sale of digital images via phone and email to a hotel in Germany, through a decorator/art curator, to hang prints on the walls of a new hotel's spa in Wiesbaden. There were no contracts involved, just a couple of phone call and emails. Of course, before the agreement was made, I made certain the guy on the other end was real and a pro. He order 25 digital images which he would print and have hung in the hotel. He trusted me to provide the quality he needed for his client and a quality which would allow him to please his client and he expected me to provide them before his deadline. He expected me to stand behind the images and if a problem arose to fix it. I expected prompt payment from him, within a reasonable period of time. Essentially it was a pro in one industry dealing with a pro in another industry, with each of us understanding the 'industry standards' involved. Both of us considered the verbal agrement we made to be binding and everything worked out beautifully. He was a little slower in paying than I had hoped, but within our time frame.

Industry standards are what we expect from each other. Personal standards are what I expect from myself.

Well you answer is about what I expected. good general busines is a good standard to use when doing anything.
The way that statement has been tossed around, I was wondering if I had missed something.

Thanks

No! Actually got all that when I was in school.
Doug's answer is what I was hoping to get. I just felt I may have missed something along the way.
Common sense seems to prevail when you talk with the right people and I really wanted to hear that. There is a large hand full of people in Garage Glamour that has it together and a larger bucket full of people that doesn't.

Your reply was way in the back corner of my mind, but as I said that was all covered in school, as was good business practices which I routinely practiced in my Landscaping business.(Lawn-Pro)

Thanks
