Have you ever gone to work, worked your Ass off and received a paycheck on payday that said $o.oo?   If this happened to you would you go back to work the next day or continue to work there? I’m going to answer that question for you and N-O! Unless you’ve signed up as a volunteer you expect to paid for the work that you do!

With that being said…can someone please post a comment to this blog and explain to me why people seem to think that photographers work for free or should work for free?!!!!

I suggest everyone go and take a photography class or look at before and after pics that photographers post so you can become more educated on what it is they do. There is more to their job than snapping a picture and uploading it to a computer, emailing it, or sending it off on a disc. They have one of the most underrated jobs in the entertainment industry.

Photos can make or break a models modeling career. Photos can make a break an artists press kit/EPK. You only get one chance to make a first impression and one of the best people that you can have on your side is a photographer. If an artist is looking for the hottest album or single he employs the best producer/production team. A photographer is like the producer of your image. You wanna look good you employ the best!!!   Yes “employ” as in pay!!!

On that note…R.Lamar Photos will NO LONGER offer free services unless a contract has been signed with pre-specified terms that have been discussed pre photoshoot.


Your image is in your hands, you determine how you want to be portrayed to the world!!!

  1. I totally agree being an up coming graphic artist. Takeing pictures is fun part but its a lot of work to exit photos.
