When trying to market ones self is it alright to offer one’s service/creative fee at a discounted rate if the client will agree to allow one to rent higher end equipment like a tethered lighting system (such as a Profoto D4) or a Medium format digital camera (Hasselblad H3D)? This way when trying to sell a job to a client in the future one can list that they have knowledge of these "more advance" systems and show the client the advantages in quality and efficiency that they may offer].

Answer: For my peace of mind, it would have to show up on the estimate/invoice as some wording like “Photography fee $___ in trade for client’s payment of $______expenses for photo equipment rental. This pricing consideration is only for this project at this time.”
