Should you photograph for free?

Hey! If you’re a non-professional photographer and take photos as a hobby or even if you’re a semi-professional, these videos are for you!

Having a friend or a family member who wants me to shoot them is a great opportunity for me to practice portraits and it’s cool for them to have someone who can provide them with some nice (free) shots. It also helps building portfolio. But… until when should you photograph without receiving anything back? After all your time, material and dedication have a value, right?

Here are two videos I found online recently that cleared things up a bit for me:
