A family member wanted me to do a photoshoot for their fashion company.
Client: I need you to take enough photos for my website, Photoshop them, and put them on the website.
Me: Alright, what’s your budget?
Client: Fifty dollars.
Client: I need all these photos taken tomorrow, and Photoshopped by Sunday. (It was Friday.)
Family pressure meant I couldn’t say no. I asked for $100 and said I wouldn’t be finished until Tuesday.
Everyone was furious with me.
