We invite entries into this month’s competition, The Digital Artist Photo Contest, that show true creativity in digital art and manipulation. There is no set topic so you can choose your own subject matter, just simply let your creative ‘juices’ flow. This contest is free to enter for all photographers including non members.
Photography is a wonderful profession that allows you to be creative, inventive, flexible with your hours and, ultimately, to be in control of your own destiny. It does, however, often come with one big downside, which is the fact that so many people who set themselves up to earn their living behind a camera end up working on their own, without the back-up that you would expect from being an employee of a bigger organisation. In short you have the freedom, but none of the support that can save you from having to face all of the issues that will inevitably come your way at some point all on your own.
For this reason it’s crucial to network and to have good connections with fellow professionals who can give you the benefit of their own experience when the going gets tough, and there are few better ways of meeting others who will know all about what you are going through than becoming a member of The Societies. By far the largest body out there set up to provide for the needs of the professional photographer, The Societies caters not just for those working in the fields of weddings and portraiture through its SWPP arm, but it also serves as the umbrella organisation overseeing several other partner societies that cater for those involved in sectors as varied as commercial, press and sport through to travel, wildlife, event and glamour photography.
