No, not photographic competition, REAL competition, you know, other photographers?
I read blogs. I read websites. I read forums. I even read Facebook….. sometimes. I hear the griping, the moaning, the whining. It’s nearly unbearable. I hear how this one lost a customer over price or that one did, or how low priced this phtographer is or that one. I hear the words, “true professional” thrown around a lot too.
Here’s what I hear: Entitlement
On both sides.
I hate to break it to you folks, but this is the United States. Anyone can own a business and price their services however they see fit, so long as they don’t break any laws. While you might think another is too high, or too low, the reality is, they might think the opposite of you! And guess what? It’s ok to think that, but keep it to yourself since neither of you are wrong.
We have a little thing in this country called Capitalism.
