Be independent. Govern your own photographic talent. Enjoy managing your work hours. Freelance photography can be a rewarding experience when you run the ship. There is however a small flipside. Every client will have a different plan, program and policy, so it’s also critical to be transparent about and committed to your ethics and goals. You may want to work with some, but not with others.
Highly-regarded and experienced freelance photographer Andy Manis will share his photography, his work ethics and important freelance factors that photographers striving for independence may want to stash in their camera bags at PhotoMidwest’s Third Thursday presentation on September 21, 2017.
Manis started his photography career in 1980. He has held positions as a college staff photographer, staff photographer at newspapers, photo editor for The Associated Press, and on occasion an educator. Manis launched his freelance photography business in 1995 and has been going strong since. Clients include the University of Wisconsin, Oscar Mayer, Mead & Hunt, Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Assoc., Lindsay Stone & Briggs, Laughlin Constable, The Associated Press, The New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today and numerous other publications and businesses.
