“I run two businesses. One is a commercial practice that is primarily business to business/client direct. In addition, I make photographs for editorial use and do an occasional advertising assignment.

 

“The other business is my fine art practice in which I sell both limited edition prints and non-editioned prints.”

 

Commercial — executive portrait

The difference between estimate and invoice was that the client liked the portraits well enough to be unable to narrow their selection down to six, instead selecting 10. We negotiated a small additional fee and charged additional file prep fees on each of the files.
