This open community is for people who want to actively pursue the trade of professional photography either full-time or freelance. The object of this community is to have an open forum for exchanging ideas and knowledge that can help you earn a living from your photography or earn you enough money to buy more photo gear.

Anything related to the business of photography is welcome here. Job leads, publication tips, tricks of the trade, studio ideas and whatever news or information that would be of interest to working photographers.

For Sale & Trade postings for photographic related merchandise are also allowed. Anything photography related...equipment, software, studio props, film, books etc.
Please do not repeat postings for 7 days. Abusive for sale postings & spams will be deleted.

Image postings are only welcome if posted in conjunction with a conversation about how you are earning money or desire to earn money with the image. Please no "what do you think" postings of random images. There are numerous communities on LiveJournal for posting your general photography work for critiques. This should be an easy enough concept to understand for a community designed to be a discussion forum about business ideas for professional photographers. If an image posting is deemed by the moderator to be off-topic it will be deleted.

All image formats are acceptable: film, digital, Polaroid. Also any type of manipulation is acceptable: digitally enhanced, traditional darkroom etc.
