I’m a member of many so-called “professional” photography forums and yet after the announcement all the discussion was about the features, what cards the cameras took, OVF vs EVF vs Flipscreen. How many mega-pixels….
These are NOT the important questions a freelance photographer should be asking themselves:
THESE are the questions they should be asking!
“Will it enable me to deliver better product to my clients”.
“Will I be in a better position to compete with this compared to my existing kit”
“How much more money will i be able to make by investing in this? What will the pay-back time be”?
I am a Sussex based photographer providing imagery for the entertainment industry.
My working time is split fairly evenly between London and Sussex although I have worked all around the world; from Europe covering the BAFTA's, Glastonbury, Cannes and Berlin Film Festivals, to the USA covering The Oscars.
Passing knowledge & experience on is very important to me and so I am proud to say I am on the Board of the British Press Photographers Association, helping to improve the image and practices of working press photographers. I also educate by writing a widely read “technical” blog detailing my use of Fuji cameras and other equipment as well as giving talks about Press (and other aspects of) Photography to camera clubs and groups.
