I want to get started as a freelance photographer, but im not sure how to. Ive read about sending stockpiles of photos off to newspapers, and magazines, but not sure what to include. Should they be presented in a portfolio folder, or simply included in the envelope with enough protection so they aren't damaged? Also, what terms do i need to outline in my first letter? should i state a price for using my photos or will they have a set fee? Thanks for any help.
