?Most of today's commercial photographers are freelancers. There are but a very few salaried commercial photographers who are either working with advertising agencies or with magazines of the same fraternity. However, you can find some of the best commercial photographers, who have both the technical expertise and the creativity, working as freelancers. Nowadays they have their own websites, where they showcase their works for public and client view. This is a great way to understand their creativity and capabilities as a commercial photographer. A commercial photographer can work best with the right kind of equipments. Today, a highly professional commercial photographer would want to work with digital cameras and not the traditional silver halide film cameras. However, if the project requires it, they might have to use both types to capture the right moments with the right kind of equipments. Apart from the camera, there are a lot of other equipments that a photographer has to use - like the lenses, the filters, the flash attachments with tripod, and the right kind of lights for all kinds of lighting arrangements. A commercial photographer can make a good amount of money from the camera. This offshoot of photography has a lot of rewards, if your work is good. Good quality work invites good clients with projects that can go as high as possible. Good quality work would mean how the commercial photographer enhances the appearance of the model or subject with the help of natural or artificial lights. It is also how the photographer uses interesting angles and focus to draw attention to the subject or a particular aspect of the subject. A good commercial photographer would also know the usage of different lenses to get the required levels of detail, despite the distance from the subject.
