The Business of Photography: Freelancing in 2016

Photographers from Prime Collective will participate in a panel discussion on business practices for freelance documentary photographers. With day rates stagnant and assignments fewer and shorter, how does one build a successful career? We'll discuss the nuts and bolts of our work, creative sources of funding, and how to lay the groundwork for long-term success.

Prime is a collective of storytellers dedicated to describing the human experience with empathy and artistry. The eight members, Dominic Bracco II, Melanie Burford, Brendan Hoffman, Pete Muller, Katie Orlinsky, Christian Rodriguez, Lance Rosenfield and Max Whittaker, work collaboratively on special projects as well as experiment with new media and tactics for audience engagement.  While each Prime photographer has their own creative practice, they join together to provide professional support and share resources.
