don't be so quick to throw away $15…if $140 is your price $15 represents a significant portion of your profit.
If he wants to negotiate lower, ask him if he has additional work first. don't just leap at a price reduction for nothing in exchange.
If you're only 16, you have plenty time to hunt for commercial debuts
