The post (article?) looks at how stock photo agencies are moving into the consumer arena as user-generated content becomes part of the strategy for many online business models – including business models for the photographer.
Heller shares three lessons he’s learned:
- The photo industry culture is resistant to change
- The culture is limited in broad business experience outside of its own industry
- Tunnel vision
The article is largely based on the first of Heller’s Five Truisms of the Photography Business, which is “More people practice photography as a hobby than as a profession.”
The statement is but one of the many reasons we’re looking forward to launching the tool-set of Photopreneur.
