Freelance Photography can be a hard business and often you have to take jobs on to pay the bills, but the longer I’ve been in business the more I’ve realised how important it is to try and shoot what you love. By shooting things that you enjoy shooting and aiming to be a part of projects or jobs that actually bring you personal joy – it will show in the quality of work you’re producing, it will show to your clients and you’ll feel good about the work you’re producing.
Never underestimate the value of enjoying what your shooting. I’ll often accept a lower paid commission over a higher one, If I feel the job suits my style better and will be more fun to work on.
