Videographer Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Videographer in San Jose:
"Preserve your Dignity."
When a low ball job comes your way, don't take it. There is no long term benefit working for less than what you are worth or what the position should pay.

Videographer in Traverse City:
"Ask For What You're Worth."
Don't sell yourself short. Your talent is worth more than you probably are asking for. Don't give away your skills to people who will use you over and over again for their business. Ask them to pay your minimum fee, or find someone else. There are always other opportunities to make more money than what you are making right now. Compare your wages to other professionals from all over the country. See if you are getting paid a fair wage. Always be willing to learn more advanced skills than what you are expected to know. Keep learning no matter what.
