New York City-based photographer Ian Spanier was recently interviewed by Christopher Smith, host and founder of the podcast Shoot For Thrill. The popular iTunes podcast centers around top photographers and bloggers who share their insight on their inspiration and business strategies. Smith posted the main talking points of Spanier's interview on the Shoot For Thrill site, which are:
1) “From gear to subjects, difficult clients to flight delays, if you can’t deal with what gets thrown at you, you’re not very professional. I pride myself on staying sharp when the problems come up. Being prepared is a big part of this, as is knowing how to come up with a solution to get the job done when you’re not prepared for something. It’s our job to get the shot, come hell or high water, so what happens leading up to the moment you press the shutter is not important to anyone else but you. I’d say part of being a professional comes with comprehending that. We’re all going to strike out and have bad shoots, but the ability to maintain a level of professionalism is paramount.”
2) Find a way to not waste people’s time.
3) Find your focus.
