What is the difference between a photography studio and a freelancer?


The photography studio refers to a company's high-quality photography service team that has a team of professional photographers and high-quality resources
A freelancer is part time, sells photographs to media outlets, without a contractual agreement, they might still work full time, but they do not have specific agreements, or their own specific company. 


Are you a freelance photographer?

Freelance Photographer - Someone who has just started out as a photographer and is trying get work from most of the genres of photography. He/she might not have a studio of his own and would be working alone.In essence, what a freelance photographer does is they work on multiple projects that they have found and been given by multiple companies. Pay is always negotiated beforehand and varies from project to project.


What is the difference between professional photographer and freelance photographer?

If you still don’t get the gist of it, then here are some of the differences to help you understand them:

*Owns a studio

Professional photographers have their own photo studio and darkroom that can cater to all their clients’ needs, unlike freelancers who don’t have unlimited access to professional equipment, and often have to rent space, and rent equipment. 



*Fully committed to their craft and passion

The primary separation is that a professional photographer either has a contract working directly with a company, a newspaper, magazine, agency, or owns their own business for which they work full time. A freelancer is part time, sells photographs to media outlets, without a contractual agreement, they might still work full time, but they do not have specific agreements, or their own specific company. 


*Fixed Income 

Of course, freelancers have no fixed income. Their work is paid for when a client likes it or when a prospective client asks for their service. When you work as a professional photographer, if there are projects or not, you are still getting paid by the company or agency you work for.

There is a blurred line between self-employed, freelance and professional people when it comes to photography. Anyone working in the industry should be able to show you their work, the different themes and projects that they have worked on and document their previous experience to help you to decide if they are a right fit for your project, or your needs.
