I have not seen his vidoe course, but years read some of his written tutorials which were excellent!

I will only say Scott is one of the most successful interiors photographers in the US. Scott knows how to light and photograph residential interiors He is able to teach others. He went from a rank amateur to the consummate professional. Scott works in the one of the most expensive real-estate markets in the US San Francisco.
Soon he was inundated with emails and Forum questions about in his techniques.
So, he started to hold small, hands-on workshops across the US. Then he published an eBook. Scott is a working photographer first and a trainer second.
He is not a mercenary whose sole purpose is to liberate people from their hard earned cash. It took me about 8 or 9 months to write it — finding time to write while still maintaining a shoot schedule was tough! I wrote a lot of it on airplanes.

And, if so, what does it depend on? Are there any projects you would refuse — or have refused — to shot? Certain types of projects can become routine, for sure.
But not often. As for refusing projects — despite what I said earlier, I do turn down work occasionally.
For me, it has to be either interesting, fun, or lucrative. But a boring project with a tiny budget? No thanks.

No question that word of mouth is the best marketing tool there is.
But it takes a critical mass of people talking about you to make that a significant factor. To get there, I think you just have to be utterly unrelenting in getting your work in front of people.
Show it to anyone who will hold still long enough for you to wave a print in their face. Next best tool: the telephone. How much would it cost me to hire Scott Hargis? How do you put a price on your services? I have a fairly simple formula for determining rates, based on the scope of the project, and the intended use of the photos.
