Wedding Photography - Community Vs. Competition - Should Photographers Collaborate or Simply Compete?
2015 has been labelled "The Year Of Community Over Competition". So we're asking should photographers compete or simply create and keep to themselves to themselves. Well it really depends on what kind of photographer you want to be. And that in turn does depend on what your experience has been. We've only recently started networking again with other photographers. Sure we've followed Facebook pages and blogs etc. but we've never really held anything so much as a coffee morning with other local creatives. This wasn't a decision we took lightly considering that your work is your work and once it's out in the ether of the internet and social media people can and do deface your lovely work via the medium of Instagram filters, Facebook cropping, compression and more. But like writers we have to man up and stop being so precious about it if we want our businesses and brands to grow.
