So, I have been doing portrait shoots for friends for a while and it has gotten to the point where I am now doing friends of friends of friends. I am getting to where I want to be compensated for my work and I'm very interested in taking my entrepreneurship seriously (formal business plan, LLC, business/E&O insurance, taxes, etc) from the get-go. I don't really care for the shady under the table thing. My business plan involves only portrait work initially, and work for other wedding photographers as a "second shooter" until I have done at least a half dozen, if not a dozen weddings as second shooter. I am looking to make one single investment from my personal accounts and assets (existing m43 gear) into the business in order to seed it. So I must make a decision on whether to bring my m43 gear into the business (and expand it with backup gear), or seed with cash and start anew with DSLR gear (probably would be a pair of 6Ds + 50mm, 135mm). I have absolutely no doubts that m43 can produce images that any of my client (I am targeting the middle class type, not super high end or anything) will be thrilled with. But, my concern is what the client (or primary wedding photographer) thinks when they see the camera. In this day and age, many people have DSLRs and may have the perception that all professional photographers use DSLRs. Clearly "the results should speak for themselves", but we know that the client's perception of us as a photographer while shooting will effect how they perceive the results. Have you had any issues with client perception? How do you handle it? When a client says "I have a 6D, why aren't you on full frame yet?" what do you say?
