Are you someone who excels at photography aspects, but is still trapped in doing the same type of stereotypical projects? Still, stuck with a referral for your next job? From individuals already established in the field to undergraduates or freshers- UEPAKI is your one-stop solution. Grab exclusive photography jobs, compete with your fellow photographers and get unimaginable benefits. Say hello to a world of advantages with UEPAKI, a one of a kind portal built-in mind keeping the needs of freelance photographers.
A good camera is not enough in order to click pictures that speak volumes. Knowledge of proper timing and lights, placement and framing techniques and patience- there are numerous ingredients that make a picture memorable. From individuals in established freelance photography jobs to students fresh out of design school venturing into the real world, in order to get your designs, the recognition that they deserve, it is fundamental that they are displayed at the right medium.
On completing art school, every artist faces a cross road, where they must choose between gaining experience with already established brand names, or setting up their own businesses and carving a niche for themselves.
The problem arises when you’re asked to sum up all your creativity, learning and practical knowledge into a window of thirty minutes during an interview. In a profit- driven world controlled by connections and referrals, securing a job, solely on the strength of your talent and hard-work becomes a herculean task. Sadly, even after doing numerous internships, your interviewers will always be judging you on the benchmark of your real-life experience and practical exposure.
Lacking the relevancy of a proper categorisation based on skills and experience, even adds to the problem. At UEPAKI, we understand that people looking for landscape photography jobs are completely different from those looking for fashion photography jobs, or those looking for jobs for wildlife photography jobs. 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.
Those choosing to carve their own niche do not have it easy either. Starting off as a freelancer, there are numerous factors that one has to keep in mind. Maintaining a studio comes with hundreds of questions- the location must be strategic in order to grab the attention of the customers, the added cost of maintaining a staff along with the fixed costs attached to a studio... the list goes on. Promotions and advertising burn a visible hole in your pocket.
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:
We often 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 establishments having good business. Sadly, even after devoting numerous years of our lives to these workplaces, the addition to our personal growth remains negligible. Even after putting your heart and soul into your work, there is no profit sharing or addition to your own brand value.
Those of us who are lucky enough to have the necessary financial and infrastructural support, start our own studios. However, this requires a hefty amount of investment in order to pay for the fixed costs of maintaining a space, hiring a team, building a clientele, etc. What’s more, even after all these efforts, the minute you make your designs publicly available, they get copied by resellers and copy editors, which limits promoting yourself at an international level.
As freelancers, you are always on the lookout for opportunities, but here too online business and marketplaces determine your ranking & visibility in accordance to your investments in digital promotions & advertising on their platform. Such digital form of reservations doesn’t allow creativity and hard work to capture everyone’s eyes. Even after investing tons of money in paid promotions and sponsorships, it takes years to carve out a niche for yourself.
