TPCEP-28.jpg

Welcome to The Photographers Craic. Episode 28. Can you make a living with landscape photography?.

In this episode we catch up with James and Ross. We then get stuck in to discussing if you can make a living with landscape photography and we touch the tip of the iceberg on how this is possible. This episode is a little special as Ross has joined James in person. This does mean they are sharing a mic and the audio is a little off but don’t let that spoil the episode.

EP 26- Planning a photography adventure with Alistair Hamill.

 EP 26- Planning a photography adventure with Alistair Hamill.

Welcome to episode 25. That topic that is not often discussed, how to price your wedding photography.

Pricing! It’s a very controversial topic and I feel this episode may be the first of many we discuss on the topic. We have no issues talking about how much we charge for wedding photography and we break the price down so it might help you price your photography. Many wedding photographers feel that the “value” of photography is dropping in the UK but are we thinking as business people or artists? If you are part time photographer, does that mean you should be charging less. Should there be an industry standard price?

Don’t undervalue yourself or the industry. Work out the basic price and then add what you feel you deserve for all the hard work and risk.

Welcome to episode 16. Ross is away living it up on a skiing holiday in Italy, when I say, holiday, I mean “working”. So you have me, James keeping you company. In this episode I have two questions from listeners on our Facebook group: How do I travel with all my gear & my first ever wedding and any tips for getting in to the industry.

I’m not sure you are going to like my answer for the second questions but I will be honest with you, you had better be prepared to work your ass off and fail (remember, failing is how we improve).

I also chat about my recent going on's and plans for the podcast.
