Hard choice about a job
This member is wanting to venture outside of his current stock-photography job and has been presented with two options: shooting used cars at a car dealership or 6 months as a cruise ship photographer. What should he do? Which job would you take?

How do you present your pricing?
Not how do you price your work, but how do you present it? One member who does not have a studio and travels on location a lot is trying to design a price sheet that’s easy to look at, but also reminds clients about the product’s value.

How to collect money from a past Wedding Client without getting bad review?
Ever been stiffed by a client? How do you go about the delicate-but-necessary process of collecting a debt while balancing customer reviews and word-of-mouth? Great discussion here that just may help you rethink how you deal with those rare problematic clients.

Pricing for taking photographs for nonfiction book
One member has an exciting opportunity to photograph people for a nonfiction book. What should they be charging for use of the photos (of course, he's retaining copyright!)? Weigh in here if you’ve ever done work like this before.
