The above video was shot using a Canon PowerShot G9
- Shoot what you like and what you’re good at.
- Remember, it’s a business! There are local laws, insurance and professional services (lawyers, accountants) you need to look into. Do your research!
- Talk to other photographers and even assist them to get an idea of what it’s like to to be a professional photographer in your area.
- The difference between a professional photographer and an amateur is “getting the shot”. Clients pay the pros to get them the shot they need, when they need it.
- Talk to potential clients. You might be surprised what you find out.
- Photography is a people business. Don’t be afraid to talk to the people in your area of interest.
- Finally, good luck!
There are probably more things you can think of to be a pro. Give me your comments.
