Unscripted Talks About (Mostly) Photography

Ep. 026: Are You Underselling Your Photography?

Your photography - and your time - is valuable. Are you underselling your photography?

In this episode of Photographers In Cars, Scott does an incredible impersonation of Elmo! Well… maybe not incredible, although it’ll make you think (we think).

Spencer and Scott talk about a few ways that photographers may be underselling their work. The service Unsplash received a bunch of press in recent weeks - and not in a good way in the photo community. Neither Spencer nor Scott recommend submitting your photos to this service.

Spencer shares his experiences with photographer/client connection services. These platforms offer the potential of client gigs, however, you need to be aware of how the platform is setup. His tale of the one photo shoot he did is a cautionary tale. Your time is valuable, too!
