  • 1. @photoshelter photoshelter.com @tdavidson taylordavidson.com SXSW, Austin, TX | Sunday, March 14 at 05:00 PM | Austin Convention Center, 8A
  • 2. Anybody can be a photographer. © ALL PHOTOS TAYLOR DAVIDSON | @TDAVIDSON
  • 3. © ALL PHOTOS TAYLOR DAVIDSON | @TDAVIDSON What is a “professional” photographer? Does photography need to be one’s sole source of income in order to be a ”professional” photographer?
  • 4. Why is it easier AND harder to be a professional photographer today? (Give everyone the tools to create, distribute and sell, and they’ll use them.) © ALL PHOTOS TAYLOR DAVIDSON | @TDAVIDSON
  • 5. © ALL PHOTOS TAYLOR DAVIDSON | @TDAVIDSON What are the ethical pitfalls of being a part-time photographer? Are you going to be able to provide the same level of service and seriousness, if you only part-time it?
  • 6. © ALL PHOTOS TAYLOR DAVIDSON | @TDAVIDSON How do new entrants feel about copyright, sharing and ownership? How many people have had an image "stolen"?
  • 7. © ALL PHOTOS TAYLOR DAVIDSON | @TDAVIDSON Do new entrants care about creating downward pricing pressure on the industry?
  • 8. How does one start selling? What equipment (camera and gear) is necessary for producing images good enough to sell? © ALL PHOTOS TAYLOR DAVIDSON | @TDAVIDSON
  • 9. Stock photography gets a lot of attention, but it’s not the only route. Being paid for the "service" of photography is as legitimate as delivering a tangible product (e.g. print, download, etc) © ALL PHOTOS TAYLOR DAVIDSON | @TDAVIDSON
  • 10. © ALL PHOTOS TAYLOR DAVIDSON | @TDAVIDSON What ancillary products and services can a photographer create to sell and promote? What websites, platforms and services are available to create these products and services?

  • 12. How can people use photography to help other parts of their businesses and their careers? © ALL PHOTOS TAYLOR DAVIDSON | @TDAVIDSON
