You can spend a lot of time learning to use a camera and process images, but it takes a lot more to become a successful professional photographer. If you are planning to take the plunge, check out this fantastic video tutorial that will give you seven helpful tips to increase your chances of success.
Coming from Julian Elliott Photography, this excellent video tutorial features seven tips for getting started as a professional photographer. One tip that I think is particularly important is not to spend too much money on equipment. It can be tempting to spend a lot of money on high end hardware to try and make sure you’re as ready as possible and delivering the best possible picture quality. And of course, the right equipment can make your life easier, but you might be surprised at how little you need to produce client-ready images. Once you’ve gone from hobbyist to pro, equipment becomes a business expense that you need to pay close attention to, so make sure every purchase is truly necessary. Watch the video above for the full rundown of Elliott.
