3 Benefits and Pitfalls of Freelance Photography

Freelance photography is a great field to work in because you get to do what you love while being your own boss. Of course, the trade off is that when you're not working you're not making any money. Here are three benefits and pitfalls of freelance photography.

You Work When You Want To- Benefit

When you're freelance and you get a call for a job that you don't want to take, you don't have to take it. If you want to go on vacation for a month you can do it. No one is going to tell you that you took off 20 days this year and are maxed out.  

You Don't Get Paid When You Don't Work- Pitfall

While you might be able to prepare for a loss of income due to a planned vacation there are going to be a lot of involuntary days off in this field. It's important to save money when you're making a lot of it so that you're prepared for the rainy days that will occur.

You Have a Passion For Photography- Benefit

If you're a freelance photographer then you must have a passion for this. And it is very gratifying to go to work and do something you enjoy instead of feeling like your life is being sucked out in a cubicle.
