What's Hot in July

New Cookbooks Ahoy!

Who Pays Photographers?

One of the toughest aspects of starting out as a freelance photographer is knowing how much to charge for your services - there are no set rules or guidelines, and, like with all art, ultimately your work is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it (more on this in next week's blog post). The Tumblr blog Who Pays Photographers? is a great little site that anyone can contribute to, with the aim of photographers revealing how much any publication pays per photograph/page/assignment, what happens to the copyrights etc. It also has a sister blog, Who Pays Writers?, which is worth a look too.

Laura Hynd

I have had the privilege of assisting photographer Laura Hynd and watching her at work. She has a simplistic, refined and uncluttered approach to food photography that speaks volumes without ever shouting. A refreshing change from the mainstream.
