I admire your sense of artistry and craftsmanship. I think your clientele does appreciate the warmth of a portrait shot with film and hand printed. I haven't shot a commercial assignment for over 12 years, but I think with the downward pressure on fees, forces photographers to go digital. The old school billing of photography usually doesn't have budgets for post production which more and more photographers shooting digital are doing. However, I don't know if they can bill for it. I think photographers like you are rare wiling to give up profession than produce an inferior product. Some professional photographers just adapt to market conditions which can mean the degrading the quality of the final product like portraits. With commercial work, it's all reproduced in print or viewed on the web which is probably well suited for digital photography anyway.
