You should charge for your photographs for the same reason that you charged for the lemonade that you sold at the edge of your driveway in the summertime. You certainly weren’t a professional lemonade maker, but you provided a product that had real value to those who bought it from you.

Dan Bailey from The Photoletariat on When Should You Start Charging For Your Photography? Great analogy on the topic and certainly something to live by. Your time is just as valuable as anyone else’s and the price in your work is not measured by the type of paper it’s printed on but on what you can offer as a photographer.
