This is Why the Cheapest Photographer Doesn’t Always Get the Job

Photographer Heather Lahtinen of the Flourish Academy recently took on one of the most common complaints among working photographers: that cheap photogs are "saturating" the market and stealing all the jobs by undercutting better photographers on price. Lahtinen says this is "the biggest load of crap" she's ever heard.

The Value of a Photographer

So, you want to be a photographer? And why not, it seems to be a valued and respected profession. Or is it?...

Does Photography Matter?

Photography has always held a weird space in my head. In my mind, I make things that look neat. I have always held great envy to those who create such complex, emotional narratives to their images. I sit and observe with awe and wonder at the tales that come from them, their reasons for color, pose, and other infinitesimal details.

Is Medium Format Worth the Money? Hassleblad H6D Review Says ‘No’

A brand-new Hasselblad H6D-100c will cost you approximately $33,000 before you even buy a lens for the system, which begs the question: is it worth the money? That's what Sonder Creative lead photographer Usman Dawood tries to figure out in this video review of the Hasselblad H6D.

The Value of a Professional Photographer, or: ‘Can I Have All the Unedited Photos?’

Every photographer has gotten the question after a successful shoot: “The photos look great, but can I get the rest of them just in case I need them later? You don’t need to edit them or anything.”

Review: The Nikon D7200 is the More Sensitive and Sociable Sibling of the D7100

Nikon’s D7000 lineup of enthusiast level cameras is currently the highest one can go before moving onto a full-frame FX series body. The company’s latest creation, the Nikon D7200, provides incremental improvements upon the previous model while also upping the standards for low-light performance in enthusiast DSLR camera systems. In a world of connected mobile devices, Nikon has also added WiFi and NFC for smarter access to photographs.

Should You Take that Lower-Paying Job for ‘Photo Credits’ from a Big Publication?

One question -- or should we say debate -- that often arises among photographers is whether or not you should take a lower-paying job if it means getting an assignment from a reputable publication or brand. The hope, of course, is that the impressive photo credits will entice other clients to hire you for a fair rate, making up for the initially low pay.

Instagram Acquisition by Facebook Now Only Worth Around $700 Million

Businessmen around the world are watching Facebook's plummeting stock closely, but perhaps none more so than the folks over at Instagram. The world was shocked back in April when Facebook agreed to purchase the tiny startup for $1 billion, but one key fact is that the price was to be paid in a mixture of cash and stock.
