I've decided to offer some one-on-one photography classes. It may take off, it may not, but I've got some great locales to shoot at and plenty of experience. Plus I keep running into new photographers just starting--and they have a lot of questions for me! So I'm really excited. I have only one problem, no idea what to charge! Anyone have ideas or advice as far as that goes? I don't want to overcharge, but at the same time I'd like to make some money out of the venture. One of my friends charges $20 for 2 hours, the other $40. Whereas others I've seen online charge an ENORMOUS amount of money. Not really looking to do that, seeing as I wouldn't be able to take such a class myself if I'd wanted too. It doesn't really seem fair with that considered.

I am the Loren! (Short for Laurence.) I'm a bit of an oddball, an old soul at home in the forests more than peopled lands. I'm a born idea man (head in the clouds) and a writer by habit. I write scifi/fantasy and I photograph nature, which can be as much or more breathtaking than make believe.

Just a note-- I owe a lot of my photographs (I think) to my beliefs, which are my own mixture of paganism, fairy beliefs, elementalism and earth worship. Getting close to the world with my camera, and capturing it for others to see, is part of that. So it doesn't seem fair not to mention it somewhere.

Other details: I'm not published yet--haven't sold writing unless you count poetry, or photos yet. One day I will! I work in retail as a manager, I'm 30, though I look a LOT younger. I'm a transgender man and proud of it. I'm admittedly pretty strange and different, but I'm proud of that too! Basically I have a lot of self confidence, though admittedly not much common sense. I hope to one day work and make money with just my art (writing and photography.)

I live in Palm Coast, Florida, and spend a lot of my photography dreamtime in Flagler just down the street.
