Salary food chain

As a fashion photographer I am about last on the brand production food chain, my photography often goes directly to the screens

Two things happen with new clients, some startup brands don’t make it to me at all and go broke in the middle of the chain, or they have spent so much money on everything else (always unexpected and underestimated) that they come to me with half the pay and a lot of promises

your thought on the food chain

I do a lot of work with start ups. 1. Get a solid contract signed. 2. Get paid up front. No terms. 3. Do your own creative work: that will get you into the realm where clients with actual budgets will hire you. Do not work for free, or for promises!!
