Due to recent shifts in the economy and the photography industry in particular, such as increased competition and the growth of social media and Internet photo-sharing, succeeding as a professional photographer today seems harder than ever. In Photographers at Work, photographer and author Martin Evening examines what truth lies in these fears, and asks several professional shooters to share their views on the state of photography and advice to help you succeed in an ever-changing-and challenging-field. Today, being a professional photographer is about much more than the ability to make a technically perfect image, and photographers need to utilize many other skills that go beyond the production of a photograph. What are the relationships between photographer and clients really like? How should you prepare for a special effects shoot? What steps should you take to protect your equipment while shooting on location? Answers to these questions, given by working professionals, will give you the practical information and guidance you need to succeed. This book takes an in-depth look at the industry, covering key topics that every working photographer needs to know-from working with models, to the legal and safety issues of working on location, to owning and running a studio, securing clients and work, and handling the complex finances of a business. While sharing his own insights, Evening also introduces you to 18 working photographers and industry pros through interviews in which they share their perspectives on this rapidly changing industry and share advice to help you succeed as well. The book will include links to video interviews (by some, but not all, of the featured photographers) that complement the interviews in the book, offering more image examples, anecdotes, and insights into the lives of working photographers.
