'You only click a few buttons'

January 16, 2017

Many people believe that Photographers take the photos then magically they can show them to their customers, Interestingly I saw a threat/forum and saw a comment along the lines of 'Photographers only click a few buttons- hardly a job'. Now this really frustrated me, Below I have pointed out just some of the jobs and responsibilities of a photographer...

 

Responsibilities

Exact tasks vary according to the specialisation. However, common activities for most photographers include:

  • working with clients to discuss the images they require and how they want to use them;

  • seeking out appropriate photographic subjects and opportunities;

  • carrying out research and preparation for a shoot;

  • working in different locations and in different circumstances to get the right image;

  • using an extensive range of technical equipment, including cameras, lenses, lighting and specialist software;

  • communicating with photographic subjects, putting them at ease, encouraging them and directing them;

  • arranging still life objects, products, scenes, props and backgrounds;

  • liaising with other professionals, including graphic designers, writers, gallery managers, picture researchers, commissioning editors and art directors;

  • managing the processing and use of images, discussing technical problems, checking for quality and dealing with clients' concerns;

  • preparing proofs for approval;

  • compiling finished products for sale, such as albums and framed prints;

  • understanding traditional film and digital photography and keeping up to date with industry trends, developments and new techniques;

  • developing expertise with software to digitally enhance images by, for example, changing emphasis, cropping pictures, correcting minor faults or moving objects around;

  • managing the business aspects of the work, including administration, scheduling work, invoicing and basic accounting;

  • developing a good portfolio, building a network of contacts and achieving a reputation for quality and reliability in order to secure future assignments;

  • self-marketing by, for example, producing business cards, postcards and promotional materials and creating and maintaining a website.
