POUND of flesh. an ound is less ;-)

Excellent column Ken. Photogs have cut their own throats, or maybe it's just being "artists" rather than business people and you have to be both, which you've been learning. The old saying in negotiating it "you can lower your price, but you usually can't raise it"...and once you get typecast at a price point... Maybe there's just too many trustafarian photogs who have undercut the market? overzealous photopups who don't realize they are sabotaging the market, by not holding the line or valuing their work properly (due to insecurity? i did that at times)? the business sharks will get away with every ound of flesh they can gnaw off, but you don't have to let yourself be chum.
