Model: “Jay, I LOVE your work, I MUST have it in my book”

Here’s what I see in my head when they say that to me:
Let’s do some simple math here model:
20 years of holding a camera in my hand. 10 of those at the professional level. 5 of those 10 were hard earned cash spent on memberships, driving to workshops, countless hours reading worthless books and hundreds upon hundreds of hours learning via trial and error.
You love my work, but think I should take all the above, and give it to you free? Yea, no.
PHOTOGRAPHERS: what are you saying about your work, if you’re giving it away for free?
