Event photographer jobs are very fashionable nowadays. Creating wedding photography projects, for example, is rather profitable. Nevertheless, photography job search isn’t an easy thing. You make either work on your own or join large photography companies. Anyway, to collaborate with photography companies, first you must succeed as an independent photographer. It is getting more and more difficult to stand out in a crowd of other photographers. Of course, some pros are overbooked and this information isn’t likely to catch their eyes, but if you are looking for job opportunities for photographers and interested in growing your business, here are a few tips to follow.

Learn to sell yourself. Show yourself. If you want a successful photographer career, differ from others. Explain customers why you are better, tell them you are really good at photography, demonstrate your strong sides. Write about them on the main page of your personal website. Be ready to explain all the benefits of working with you. It may sound like “In my photos the bride will look better than Princess Diana”.

Create a selling site. You must gain maximum profit from your site. Its design plays an important role. Use readable fonts and colors, make an understandable menu, work on design.

Stand out. Use your imagination, make interesting offers (editing images within a week, half-price love story shooting, photo album for free, videographer from your team, etc.). List all your awards, certificates and achievements.

Offer different price categories. Set prices reasonably considering your experience and qualifications to be a photographer. Set a low price if you are a beginner, medium price if you are rather experienced but not so popular, high price if you are a real pro. Furthermore, you may divide your clients into segments – economy, standard and VIP.

When you already know how to become a photographer and are interested in collaboration with photography companies, there are several ways of possible cooperation.

Open a photography studio. Creating a photo studio is a profitable business. You may lease out the room itself as well as equipment. Try to interest photography companies, offer discounts and they will organize shootings on a constant basis.

Find an agent. Photography agents help photographers build strong relationships with photography companies, magazines, brands. Trust professional agents to do photography job search.

Find direct cooperation with photography companies. It is also possible. You may use online job seeking platforms or special applications. One of them is Zooma, a platform that unites pros in the photography and cinematography industry. How can you join large companies? In a few clicks! The app was developed for people involved in video jobs and photography jobs and allows cooperating on different photography projects like weddings. You may open new job opportunities for photographers and establish relationships with independent specialists and photo agencies.

Attend workshops and photography courses. Some companies organize courses and other events for photographers. Even if you have already started your career as a photographer, it’s never too late to learn and upgrade your skills. Try to get noticed and show good results, ask about possible collaboration in the future. Maybe you will get such a bonus. Don’t get disappointed when you are proposed to work for free at the start.

To conclude we would like to mention that constant  hard work is a must on the way to success.
