Are you interested in freelance photography? Although I strongly encourage focusing on your photography niche, to achieve the most success in selling your photography and getting new customers, freelance photography is still a strong attraction for many that enjoy taking all types of pictures.
For those interested in this type of photography, some of the advantages include the following:
• You work solely for yourself, selling each photo or series of photos individually.
• You don’t have a boss.
• You work sometimes on assignment and you may sell to magazines.
That is is why freelance photography is such an attraction for so many photographers – new and experienced. They all have an eye for those’special moments’ and they all appreciate the camera’s ability to capture that moment and freeze it in time forever.
For many, in addition to the joy of taking pictures, there is also the thrill in ‘conveniently’ having a camera and an eye for those ‘special moments’ and to be there to freeze the moments in time forever!
Freelance photography may be your entire career or it may start out as something you do in your spare time but begin making money from it. It’s similar to freelance writing in this sense that many people turn it into a career and enjoy the freedom of working essentially for themselves on their own time and making money doing something they love doing anyway.
