Becoming a successful photographer has always been a difficult thing to do, and it is only going to become harder in the future. Still, it can be a very rewarding career. If you are interested in becoming a professional, this helpful video from a seasoned photographer details seven things you need to do to increase your chances of finding success.
Coming to you from Karl Taylor, this excellent video details seven things you should do if you want to be a successful professional photographer. Personally, I think that it is important that anyone who is pursuing a career in photography devotes a good chunk of their time to studying how to run a business. Unfortunately, many talented photographers fail to ever make it simply because they do not understand the nuances of accounting, marketing, etc. that go into a business. On the other hand, there are many photographers who produce solid (if not earth-shattering) work and enjoy successful careers because they look at themselves as businesspeople selling photography services, instead of photographers who run their business as needed. Check out the video above for lots of helpful tips from Taylor.
