The Vendor Client Relationship

I've written about the photographer / client relationship a number of times, recounting my own experiences. But then Vancouver photographer, Ed Araquel, went and Twittered a link to the video (below) and, suddenly, I realized that nothing I've written (or might write) could do a better job of illustrating this relationship.

Click HERE to see the video.

And just so you don't think I have no heart, depriving you of a pretty girl pic in this update, here's another photo of Lupe from my photo shoot the other day. I call her Lil' Latin Lupe Loo cuz she's all of 4'11" in heels and probably weighs in at a hefty 80 to 90 lbs. soaking wet. Very minimal processing. (No Gaussian Blur or Diffusion Glow was abused in the post-production of this image.)

That was so hot! And so true and yet so sad.

I am desperate to hire the chef from the video for my client negotiations.

I think a hidden lesson in this hilarious video is that we, as vendors, need to have something unique in our photography so that clients can't go to the "Taco Shack" to get the same thing nor can they do it in house.

Your imagination coupled with your ability is your niche. Make it your own and only then can you stand by your fixed price and be the chef in that video. :)

Stepping down from soap box.
