I spent some time today looking at local commercial photographers’ websites.
- There’s a lot of competition.
- To some extent, all commercial photographers in central Scotland are Jack of all trades.
- The majority specialise in one area – e.g. architecture; still-life; industrial and so on.
- The quality of websites is variable: one or two are excellent but most are distinctly average.
Commercial photography is something I’ve thought about doing myself off and on over the years. However, I have enough of an income to get by on for now, so I’m not planning anything. Besides which I think it’s possible that doing something you love for a living might take the sparkle out of it.
