The Business of Architectural Photography

The corporate world is becoming a more challenging environment and photographers are struggling to deal with those many changes. Emerging and seasoned photographers seem to hunger for more opportunities to learn how to deal in today’s world of challenges.

Estimating, licensing issues, scouting assignments, risk management, copyright protection are important factors. Assignments require attention from preparation through delivery and beyond. It’s important to communicate with the client throughout the process. It’s equally important to charge for those services and those charges appear on every estimate before the assignment is authorized.

Topics covered:

Estimating / Contracts / Stock issues
Assignment project coordination
Permits/release forms/film commissions
Risk Management / Safety issues
Assignment preparation, scouting
Case study- Assignment execution, related to lighting 24 story office tower
