During a boudoir photoshoot, it’s important to know what to say to make your subject feel comfortable. But it’s equally important to know what not to say or do. This video from Michael Sasser will spare you from some really awkward situations, as he shares a list of things that shouldn’t be a part of a boudoir photoshoot.
“You’re too expensive.”
“My budget is not that big, can you lower the price?”
“But the [random other photographer] is cheaper than you!”

No matter how much you charge, there will always be someone who will tell you that you’re too expensive, who will compare you to other (cheaper) photographers, and who will want to pay what they have, not what you charge. While your first thought may be to tell them “oh, bugger off,” you know that it’s certainly not the best thing to do. In this video, Michael Sasser gives you some useful tips on how to keep your cool and how to react when your potential clients complain about your price.

Michael Sasser believes it isn’t always the best choice, and in this video, he gives you his reasons why. Let’s see if you agree.
Making mistakes is a process of learning, and when you are new at something, you’re gonna make a lot of them. But why not avoid them if you can? In this video, Michael Sasser points to eight most common mistakes of beginner boudoir photographers. But, he also gives suggestions on how to fix them and raise your photos to a higher level.
