Following on from last weeks video, If I had to start my photo business today: Zack Arias, today we look at art in the commercial world.
This video popped up as a Vimeo Staff Pick and it delves into finding success in the commercial world but still developing art.
With the internet these days we have the ability to see the work of some amazing photographers. It seems that these photographers are living the dream, they are creating awesome work and sharing it. What we don’t get to see is the work that pays the bills.
This short documentary highlights that in most cases when working for a client it is there brand, there money and ultimately their call. Over time you might get to a point where the client will trust you and give you more creative control but I think it’s important to remember that at the end of the day it isn’t your work. If you want full creative control you need to be doing personal projects.
