My clients are starting to ask for prints rather than frames and I'm unsure how to combat this… do you have any ideas?
Steve Sutton, Stafford, UK
I asked someone what her budget was, when she asked me to photograph her wedding. This is her response and I am hoping you can give me some advice on how to reply?
I am a working mum of 3 kids, and I would like to build my reputation (as a photographer) so I might one day be able to leave my job, and have a more flexible one in photography to spend more time with my boys. Any tips on how I could do this would be fab.
Sarah Roberts, Cheshire UK
I have a passion for photographing horses, and would dearly love to exhibit these, or abstracts, but have no idea how to set about this... and I don't seem to be able to get people to book photo shoots of their horses... feeling very lost...
Fiona Firth, Dursley UK
I'm starting to get actual jobs which I hope to get paid for, but I'm so nervous that I might mess up! How can I get over this? When I take photos as a favour they usually turn out fine, but I am really nervous about doing paid jobs.
I would like to offer options like Queensbury or Jorgenson albums, but they will only accept commissions from professionals. I am a retired GP, and shoot a few weddings for friends, but do not wish to turn my photography into a business.
Martin Moss, Maidstone UK
How do I market my business to get more weddings? I have attended about 8 or 9 weddings so far and all have gone pretty well, but I am trying to break into wedding photography full time.
Ron Yates, Fareham UK
I don't have enough time to devote to shooting and growing my photography skills/experience as much as I’d like. But I can't afford to leave my job just yet. What do you suggest?
Steve Jackson, Portland USA

Q. With so many cameras to choose from today, what camera and lens would you recommend for taking contemporary portraits of a professional quality?
Q. What is your professional opinion on uploading images to a Facebook Business Page - without just asking first?
Ask those little things about photography that have been niggling you!! I don’t know the meaning of life but I do know a lot about taking pictures so ask away!
