Being Freelance / An appetite for adventure - Photographer and Videographer Steve Zavitz

Listen on

Episode notes

Steve began learning his craft in 2008 and took it professional in 2011. His ambition, back then, was to build a name for himself as an action sports photographer in the world of Parkour (freerunning).

Depsite knowing there wouldn’t be much money in it, Steve gave it a go anyway.

And he invested his time into a second niche, too. Calling on his background and contacts within the food industry, he began shooting for restaurants and then built his portfolio as a food photographer from there.

He explains how he presents the two sides of his work online in a way that appeals to both types of client. He also talks about finding work, figuring out what to charge and trying to move on from Instagram and YouTube.
