Patreon Client Pricing

No.3062785 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
I'm a professional photographer & shoot a wide variety of clients, including artists, models, boudoir, cosplay, newspapers, magazines, etc. After the photos are taken, edited, delivered, and shared in low-resolution with my watermark, they are typically very well received and some clients asks to use them for their Patreon. I am sincerely struggling with a fair way to price such a thing.

I've just been telling clients "No" when asked about Patreon, but it's happening more and more so I need to figure something out and would greatly appreciate input.

A couple examples:

1. One client asked to sell high rez images for $1 each and cutting 15cents per image to me. I can't help but shake my head at that idea.

2. Another offered to pay up front for the shoot and then expectations to use the photos for Patreon, however this person has over 570,000 fans and I know that the use of the photos on Patreon would far outshine the pricing of the shoot alone.

3. One individual I agree'd to let sell prints and cut me 40% of sales of my prints.. however, she stopped doing so, saying they were no longer being purchased, which may be true, but raises the point that I have no way to regulate sales once photos are in their hands.

4. One client who is a friend sold prints not on Patreon, but much like it, also cut me 40%, but this person was diligent and communicative. I feel that this was a good example of how it COULD work well, but also feel that I should not expect this from all clients.

5. Some of the things the Patreon users have asked to use my images for are: Prints, posters, high-resolution downloads, multi photo packages, exclusive photos only available on Patreon, special request images (custom poses), etc.

I have a smugmug where I offer direct to door shipping of prints, but Patreons often like to print and sign their prints before sending them to their Patrons.

I have my general pricing down and special circumstances, but this has a lot of moving parts and am unsure.

Question about Mirrorless Cameras

No.3066013 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Can anybody explain to an amateur idiot why mirrorless cameras are not as good? When using the light meter on a DSLR's viewfinder, I can't guarantee the light balance of a shot. I have to use the screen on the back to make sure that the shot comes out perfectly. I read online that DSLRs shit on mirrorless cameras... why though? Why are DSLRs considered better when you have the guesswork of a viewfinder that isn't wysiwyg?

Diffusers

No.3066299 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
I built myself a light/flash stick
(Monopod + radio controlled flash)

However I'm not sure which diffuser to get for it.

This is basically what my stick looks like currently.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnyiQgAHcQA

The guy uses a Cloud Lambency diffuser it seems like.

Having a diffuser that shoots light everywhere is going to be quite beneficial, as I'm moving around at events and taking pictures fast.
Often I will not aim the flash correctly as I'm framing my shots quickly

So now I don't know which diffuser to put on my off camera flash.

Either a cloud lambency, the clear lambency, or maybe some meme like GARY FONG LIGHTSPHERE?


Pic related, the stick from the video.

What kinds of features would you want to be standard in cameras in the future?

>Camera comes with built in bluetooth+wifi+radio for flashes
>Digital viewfinder's simulated exposure can predict how a picture will look based on where the flashes are positioned in the room relative to the subject
>Geotagging
>Option to automatically encrypt photos once they are taken
