As individuals trying to make it big in the beauty industry, the challenges we face are numerous

From the time you start your career as a professional photographer, you are faced with the choice of either starting off with an established name- a production house, advertising agency or the likes, or setting up your individual photography studios.

The lack of an equal stage- an undeniable reality

You have the talent of capturing moments of a lifetime in your clicks. Yet, in a world that runs on reciprocal favours, personal contacts and referrals, being a talented photographer isn’t enough to make you successful. Even after numerous internships, you are unable to build the kind of network that will help you land your dream projects. Even after landing internships or job s with some of the biggest names in the industry, you end up working on their terms, adding to their brand value. Under such circumstances, how do you ensure that you grow as a professional?

  1. Photography is an integral part of any type of film making. Yet, we fail to see any type of platform which exists for the benefit of photographers, in order to connect them wit the numerous opportunities that crop up. Even today, many talented photographers are having to sell their pictures and services at less than a percentage of their worth.
  2. The lack of a proper system of categorisation, based on differentiated skills and experience, adds to the problem. With numerous people working in the same area of expertise, the result is unnecessary competition brought about by the scarcity of opportunities and resources, in markets both online and offline.
  3. Even if you do manage to get enough resources to set up your own photography studio, how do you ensure a regular and stable clientele? With the lack of a separate, dedicated online marketplace, no amount of online followers can help you convert your efforts into success. Add to that the cost of paid advertising and promotion and you have a visible burn in your pocket.

The end result-

a compromise between achieving your dreams and the everyday struggle

As a result of the numerous problems you face in trying to create your presence, you eventually end up settling for either of these options:

  1. Working as employees with prominent brands/ production houses: We convince ourselves that this is the best path to follow- a stable income, good infrastructure and the opportunity to gain real world exposure by working with an already established advertising agency or production house, having good business. However, even after putting your heart and soul into your work, there is no profit sharing, no addition to your own brand value or advancement in creativity & expertise etc.
  2. A Studio of your own: Those of us who are lucky enough to have the necessary financial and infrastructural support, start our own photography studios. However, this requires a hefty amount of investment in order to pay for the fixed costs of maintain a space, hiring a team, building a clientele etc. Even then, we are unable to ensure that our photographs will not get copied.

Working as Freelancers: As freelancers, the chances of our photographs getting copies are huge. When it comes to quality oriented work, we are always on the lookout for opportunities, but here too online platforms and marketplaces make you grow your market through paid promotions & sponsorships.

What If we told you that you have the option of a dedicated marketplace offering integrated solutions to all your operational problems, established with the sole intention of empowering freelancers?
