It’s a question every photographer has had to answer at some point.
The answer is, almost always, a mix of things. What’s the most popular photo you’ve ever taken? You haven’t taken a photo of the best selling photo of all time just yet, have you? What can you do to get your next photo in the mix?
The best thing you can do is make photos that are compelling and memorable. Not everyone has the ability to create the perfect photo at home or with a small team. That’s why so many photographers make fun of photo-sharing websites like Flickr. They’re focused on getting as many photos as possible onto the Internet, while most have only a small team.
When you get your work across to the right people, the images will be more successful and powerful. For all the other photographers, you’ve got no excuse to not get started on your own shots.
Why You Need to Have a Job
You need a job to put yourself in an environment that allows for your abilities. It’s a competitive economy, so if you don’t have a job, chances are you can’t compete.
There’s no excuse for not writing a short bio if you don’t want to. If you go ahead and do, but forget to write one, you’re taking away from your future, and that’s unfair. It’s time to start writing one now.
You need to know what you’re good at, and why. If you take photos and write a short bio about them, you’re taking away from some of the reason to be there in the first place. It’s time to build an audience and build a portfolio of your work. Make some of that time in the background by taking a few small photos in your spare time and making those into a portfolio.
You need to show your abilities. If someone asks you to shoot for a certain company, go because you’re a photographer. Don’t be a “social media junkie” that says “yes, I’ll come back and shoot for 10 years if I get another call.” If you’ve been doing that, it’s time to work on your portfolio.
The best way I’ve seen to accomplish this is to create a portfolio of the types of photos you like and are good at at home. The portfolio and website both do wonders for creating trust in the industry.
