Most photographers keep their camera safely suspended by a protective neck strap, ensuring that they don’t drop it. They go wherever they have to in order to get the shot they’re after. But some photographers have to operate multiple cameras, sometimes mounted far out of reach, triggering them remotely when the time is right.

When you’re taking the leap into shooting photos or videos professionally, there are many things to consider. However, one element that doesn’t occur to most people is the need to acquire insurance to protect yourself, your team and the equipment being used. Budgets are typically very limited, and additional expenses are surely unwelcome. However, even though insurance is completely removed from the creative process, the protection it offers is indispensable. Read on to find out why most professionals insist on it.

When anyone can claim to be a photographer, differentiating yourself as a professional is harder than ever. A social media presence and a website (or two) are required just to keep up. The best way to separate yourself from the crowd is to develop, promote, and disseminate a personal project.

I wanted to be a wildlife photographer in the worst way! Having been very fortunate to spend most of my youth in the great outdoors, watching such programs as Mutual of Omaha's 'Wild Kingdom' on TV, and being influenced by my older sister (who is an amazing artist), it just seemed that it was where I should be. But I was not even 20, with the limited funds and limited gear that comes with that age. My longest lens was a 200mm, and while I accomplished enough to get the “nice photo, you should become a photographer” comment from friends, it wasn’t good enough. More importantly, my photography wasn’t growing, and the fun was becoming frustration. The commitment had to be made—in for a penny, in for a pound!

I come from a photojournalist background, so being asked to test the new Rokinon Tilt-Shift 24mm f/3.5 ED AS UMC lens was a bit of a challenge for me. I am accustomed to grabbing gear from my bag and shooting in a hurry, often with little regard for the well-being of my equipment. Tilt-shift shooting tends to be a slower enterprise, maybe a bit too precise and precious for my taste.
