These days, it seems like everyone is a photo expert. Thanks to social media and all the photo apps that make us feel like we’re professional photographers, the world has been experiencing a renewed love of photography over the past several years. It’s so easy to make pictures look good these days. All you need is a smartphone, some high quality apps and good lighting.
Some people might even decide they want to take their love of photography further. They might decide to invest in a ‘real’ camera and explore becoming a professional photographer. If you want to become a professional photographer, do you know what the journey will be like? Would you like a taste of what you’ll encounter on a daily basis?
Thanks to this infographic called So, You Wanna Be A Photographer? (by Fotoseeds), it’s no longer a mystery. You can get a preview into your new life as a professional photographer by checking out this very in-depth graphic. As with most entrepreneurial endeavors, it may seem more glamorous than it actually is to make a living as a photographer. However, if it’s your passion, the joy you get from photography will probably make up for all the annoyances.
It seems to me (and I could be wrong of course) that with all photography technology available, in order to make a good living as a professional photographer, you have to be as good at selling your services and value as you are at the photography itself. This is the same kind of thing that web designers and other freelancers have been experiencing for years. Many try it, but few can sustain it. It’s survival of the fittest in the modern world. This is one of the most comprehensive photography infographics I’ve seen in a while. I hope you enjoy it!
