Traveling with your photo equipment can be stressful but if you take some preventative steps before you leave you can set your mind at ease.
Besides your day-to-day shooting, why not have your website bringing in income while you work or sleep? There are many choices to add a little extra cash to your bottom line each month.
Professional product shots can make or break an ecommerce site. Poor images instill a lack of confidence in the company as a whole and can dramatically increase a site’s bounce rate.
Being a photographer is a passion, not just a career choice. The thought of “missing a shot” crosses every photographer’s mind yet how many times have you caught yourself unprepared? Not only could the shot you capture make a great addition to your site or blog, it could end up being one of those “must have” images by a stock or news agency that goes viral.
If you specialize in studio photography, now, during summer, is the perfect time to look around your studio to see what needs updating, organizing and cleaned.
Private collections, antique stores and auction houses offer a plethora of work for any photographer. The items you’ll encounter with antique and collectible photography will need considerable technical skill. Your ultimate goal is to create a factual presentation of the object since the buyer will most likely be a connoisseur of your subject.
Real estate agents know that well-shot photos will dramatically increase the ability to both connect with a buyer faster and attract a higher price for their listing. With the market on the up rise, you’ll want to be a part of this very profitable photography niche. With the right, equipment, techniques and a bit of practice, you’ll be shooting properties with ease.
Mastering the technical skills of photography are not the only components to creating memorable visual imagery. Developing your creative eye is probably the most important skill you’ll need. You’ll learn to see the world with your own unique voice and be able to see creative potential in any situation.
Taking the jump to having your own fully stocked studio starts with one important decision: to rent or to own your space.
Like any field, staying in close connection with your fellow professionals can benefit you on so many different levels. Don’t think of these photographers as competition, think of them as a resource to improve your skills, broaden your client base and add revenue to the bottom line of your studio.
