What Is Freelance Photography?
I’m freelancing now writing this article. I’m self-employed both as a writer and freelance photographer.
As a freelance photographer, sooner or later you’ll need to get yourself set up as a legal business entity.
This can be as a corporation, LLC, or a sole proprietorship. This will be determined by your particular business needs now and in the future.
Don’t get too hung up on this at first. Understand it by doing the research, and handle it when the time is right, but sooner rather than later. You’ll also need contracts.
In the meantime, get out and shoot.
