As a professional event and corporate photographer working in Edinburgh and around Scotland, I often as myself – Why should professional photographers always embark on a new photographic project. Well creativity is what keeps us going and for those of us in seasonal areas of the industry personal photography projects can be a lifeline. You also retain your freshness and desire for photography. I have sold fine art images at seasonal times when commercial
commissions are lower out of season.
You can also use the skills you have learned during you r projects to enhance your commercial work. I supply infrared images for wedding, sport and architectural photography commissions and finally, you might just enjoy it.
