3 Questions Every Photographer Should Ask Themselves Before Accepting a Shoot

For photographers who love their craft, it can be hard to turn down clients or shoots, but sometimes saying no is necessary. Whether a shoot doesn't fit your brand or a client doesn't want to pay what you charge or you're simply burnt out and need a break, saying no to a potential job is occasionally the best option. But it's not always easy, especially if you tend to be a "yes man" or a people pleaser. The next time you have a potential client or gig, ask yourself these questions: 1. Does the shoot match your brand? There are a few key things to consider when deciding whether or not to take on a new shoot or client. The first, and possibly most important, is...

Drones vs. DSLR Photography

It's a no brainer that DSLR photography still trumps drone camera capabilities, but before we deem DSLR reigning king, let's take a look at some categories where we can closely compare the two. Image Quality Now many of us think that DSLRs blow drones out of the water when it comes to image quality, but it has become apparent that drones are becoming very capable of producing very high level shots. Drones like the DJI Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2 boast the best cameras on the market today attached to drones with technical specs including 1-inch sensors and 5.2K video resolution. Don't get me wrong, capable high resolution camera bodies like the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and Nikon D4S take breath...

Know Your Worth: A Breakdown On How To Price Your Photo Services

One of the biggest challenges of starting a business is figuring out how to price the goods and services you offer. You don't want to undersell yourself and devalue the market, but overpricing and scaring off potential clients is just as dangerous. Pricing similar to the competition is a good place to start, but since what you're offering is presumably not exactly the same, the prices shouldn't be either. That's why we've compiled this guide that will break down everything you need to know about pricing. The first thing to remember is that your pricing shouldn't be exactly the same as the competition's, just as your services aren't exactly the same. While it's good to compare pricing, it's also important to have a strong...

Heavyweight Battle of the Drones: Phantom 4 vs. Mavic Pro

As the commercial drone market starts its long awaited boom, there has only been one clear front runner to lead the charge. The French company Parrot has struggled to produce top of the line products and American born GoPro just entered the drone scene with a major setback due to the recall of the Karma drone. That leaves us with two primary players, DJI and 3D Robotics (3DR). With strong initial funding, 3DR seemed to go round for round with DJI, but as time wore on, 3DR shifted its emphasis toward software solutions. Hence, DJI remains the only strong candidate in commercial drone hardware manufacturing. That leaves us to wonder, which of the DJI drones will continue to dominate the commercial...

The Oculus Rift will Cost $600

Virtual reality has been a dream since before the first television. To the surprise of many, that dream may stay a dream following the pre-sale price of the Oculus Rift. Costing a hefty $600, the first consumer version of the Oculus Rift will cost as much as two PS4's. It's definitely more than the Internet expected, and puts a damper on the excitement many were feeling for VR, but is the price fair? Given that it's the first version of new technology (and the Apple Watch is priced around here as well), I'd have to say it's absolutely priced fairly. That being said, the Oculus team could have been more transparent leading up to the announcement to reduce some of...
