How to Succeed as a Freelance Photographer

Someone has said it right that – “a hobby a day keeps the doldrums away”. So, if clicking pictures is your hobby, you can easily make it your profession by being a freelance photographer. Freelancing in photography might seem like an easy task, but when you get into the photo business, you will know how tricky and complicated it gets as having good photography skills is not enough.
Once you have decided about freelance photography as your career option, you have to work more on your administrative skills apart from giving your best shot. Here are some tips for the beginners who are willing to collect some awesome memories while clicking.

First things first! Know what you like to click the most. You can chose your speciality while doing freelance photography and choosing one specific field will help you in buying the equipment accordingly. Though having more than one speciality will help you in getting more work and you’ll become more versatile, but you need to find that one specific field in which you can specialised like many other photographers.

To select a field as your speciality, you can try different photography genre like – wedding, portrait, nature, corporate or industrial. While clicking for each category, you will realize which type suits you the best and what kind of photo-shoots you really enjoy doing.

The next step towards getting freelance photography jobs is to create your own portfolio. Now a days, having a good portfolio is in demand and clients also prefer only those photographers who have well maintained portfolios. In your portfolio, you can include your best shots or can seek help from aspiring models who are willing to work in exchange for photos.

To be in the business and to get best freelance photography jobs, one has to catch up with the latest trends. Now-a-days, everything is digital and to up your game in photography, you also need to create a website of your own where you can showcase your skills and talent to the world.

Your source can give you the best opportunity. Try to reach out to those contacts of yours with whom you would like to work with or from where you would like your work to come. Blogging doesn’t harm anyone, so if you also do one blog a day based on your photography that can also help you in getting good opportunities. In fact, you can ask some best bloggers to do a story showcasing your photography work to get the best freelance photography jobs.

You have to be prompt when it comes to communications. Your one late reply can make you lose a very good opportunity. So each time when you get any requirement or query through emails, messages or phone, try to reply as fast as you can because you never know your loss can be someone’s gain.

Lastly, there is no harm in turning your passion into your profession, but once you start looking for freelance photography jobs, the thing that often goes out of the doors in most of the cases is clicking pictures for your own. You tend to focus so much on your profession that you forget that this is what you love to do and you should click often, not for anyone else, but for yourself.

Know your industry – Educate yourself about the industry by reading magazines, books, articles and Internet. Learn how the industry functions and how the business of modelling is conducted. You also get to know about important skills such as posing and ramp walk. 

Be bold and confident – Your confidence and go-getter attitude matters a lot. Just sitting back and waiting to be noticed won’t be much helpful. You will have to actively promote yourself and look out for opportunities to rise and shine during modelling auditions.

Take your career seriously – The people who don’t take modelling as seriously as a real job are often unable to find much success in the industry. Usually modelling has a small window of opportunity and missing that may not be good for your career.

Because modelling is not just about walking the ramp!

Walking on ramp with embellished designer gown is not the only aspect of modelling world, in fact it’s a vast field to discover and one of its indispensable part is modelling agencies.

As you plan to run your own modelling agency, focus on one niche. There are several types of modelling and it won’t be possible for a person to provide modelling jobs in all types of areas.

A modelling agency should be specialized in a particular area to perform best in that specific field. Fashion, runaway, commercial, print and glamour are few types of modelling and each one is completely different from the other.

The best modelling agencies are the one which keep on looking fresh talents and for aspiring models. To increase your marketability, you need to discover new talents. Also, the objective should not be only to provide best modelling jobs to the models but also to groom them and to prepare them for the best.

To find talents for your modelling agency, open auditions are the best way. Models always try to grab modelling jobs and to them auditions are the approachable way to connect and make contacts.

Apart from models, you will also need a good photographer for your agency to shoot portfolios of the models because portfolios are the first step to get modelling jobs. Also, there are many photographers who have good contacts with the models so it will be easy for you to get more talents for your agency.

If you really want to make good money out of your business then sponsorship and partnership are really the good options for you to look upon. You can sponsor modelling events to publicize your agency while giving your models a chance to participate in the same event. Also, you can go into partnership with more successful modelling agency or by buying a franchise from them to kick-start your business.

Apart from all the challenges a modelling agency faces, one of the major challenge is to keep up one’s business reputation in the market. Now-a-days, there are so many scams in the modelling world that models, who try to get the best modelling jobs, gave up their aspirations of becoming a model when they encounter such fake businesses. So, one needs to make considerable efforts to make sure that their business upholds a professional reputation.
