A big thanks to the people that came out to the last trampoline meeting. A big thank you also to Alfonso Calero for sharing some of his work and advice on entering competitions, which reads something like this "JUST DO IT!!".

Next month we will be talking about making the transition from Assistant to Photographer, the pitfalls and common mistakes people make. We will be hearing from a guest speaker, stay tuned to find out who.
Hope you can make it for that one.

What to charge

After a recent conversation with someone about what to charge I'd thought I'd post this link to various resources and a few different bits of software photographers can use when preparing quotes for jobs. If there is a single area of your business you really need to have a solid understanding of, it's what to charge when quoting on jobs. Here is the link thanks to David Bean for posting them on flickr .
