It’s official! I’ve added a “commercial” category to the blog. If someone had told me last year that I would be acting as a USPS Commercial Photographer the following year I….well I would have believed it. I’m so excited to finally be getting commercial work outside of Doordash!
I do have a (not-so) secret hope that my commercial work will open doors to editorial assignments or fashion photography. Being a commercial photographer for a dress designer would be a dream!
There is a myth floating around the trendy “professional picture taker” sphere that you have to specialize in one specific category of photography.
I believe that doing that can definitely help, in the beginning.
But once your calendar is full and you get all the work you want, or you’ve just straight up shot A TON, you begin to realize what makes different types of photography truly different. That river runs so much deeper than posing approaches or clientele.
I am definitely new to the world of Commercial Photography. However, I’m settling in. There is definitely a need. I can’t wait to see what company lands in my inbox next!
