I'm actually curious about something

For all you established photographers, what do you know now that you wished you knew when you started (esp in the arena of commerical, lingerie and glamour photography).

Look forward to your replies

There's very little money to be made in commercial glamour. Very few actually do it and make a living.

There's tons more to be made in the private glamour. Average looking women will pay dearly to have photographs that are tastefully sexy and make them look beautiful. They pay for talent and discretion.

once you establish a rate with a client, it ain't gonna change. don't fall for the "give us a discount now and we'll make it up on the next shoot," line. it's not going to change on the next one and if you insist that it does, there won't be a "next shoot."

Hmmm, sounds interesting..Did you find this out the hard way?...Although, isn't this what part of glamour photography is, trying to bring out the sexuality and sensuality of the subject/model..
