Photographer Answers Top 10 Photography Questions

Whether you're a professional, new hobbyist, or somewhere in between, it's always interesting to hear photographers' answers to common questions on photography.

Karl Taylor is a highly experienced photographer, and one of the clearest and most straightforward YouTubers on the platform. In the above video he answers 10 common questions put to photographers.

Question 9 is a particularly interesting one: how do you market your photography and how did you when you first started? It highlighted a change that made me a little sad. Taylor talks about how he would send large printed brochures to art directors, for example. Where as now, it tends to be an email with a link to a portfolio and some social media profiles. Perhaps that's a way to separate yourself from the pack.

What would your answers be to some of these questions?

Karl is an outstanding teacher. His education platform is ridiculously cheap (like $15/mo). The instruction and production quality are excellent. (obligatory disclaimer: no affiliation)

100% agree. One of the few education sites that doesn't just teach basic bitch 45 degree lighting. Learned a ton of very useful tips on there.
