After finding myself in yet another strange new world last week, I began to reflect on the future of photography and steps necessary to protect the profession we love.
As advanced technology becomes more affordable, we seem to be seeing more and more photographers and videographers using robots to help them create jaw-dropping work, which requires precise movements. These machines are no longer only in the domain of the likes of NASA, Google, or Hollywood — and that’s really exciting.
Today, I’d like to share with you a story. A story about a brief moment that was a long in the making.
Even as the corresponding shifts from film to digital and from print to online have brought with them an expectation of instant feedback, sometimes you gain more as a photographer from being forced to wait.

In the world of photography and filmmaking, it’s not unusual to work for nothing in return for exposure, experience, and getting a foot in the door — to the frustration of others. Whether you’re the one moaning or the one undercutting, check out these ideas for how we can make things better.
