You’re usually not just paying for the service. You’re also paying for all the experience accumulated to render it. Anyone can run around with a camera and take pictures. A photographer takes professional photographs. The difference in quality can be years apart. Something freelancers will often hear is “oh, my nephew can do that and I can pay him less for it.” Well, let them pay less for it if they’re able to. That’s the beauty of our system, you can choose the quality of a job you want done.
Freelancers set their value for their service and stick with it, providing discounts if (and that’s a big if) necessary.
