| | Re: Questions about working w/photographer
In my experience you can kind of make your own rules.
I have several friends who have nice pictures. Either they took them themselves, had a buy share photos after the fact or paid a photographer. If someone approaches them for pics they may politely decline or say I do not trade but if you would like to purchase this item and send me pictures I will refund a certain amount if I am able to use the pictures.
This protects you- what if you send a ton and never get a single picture. Or maybe you do get pictures but they're substandard.
If you ask a photographer to take pictures for you then you either work out a trade or fee.
