High Volume Photographers Moving to Mirrorless? Will Crockett talks with high volume photo companies at PMA about why they will choose mirrorless cameras for their photographers.
High volume photographers constantly face the challenge of becoming more efficient and need to find smarter ways to make more dollars per hour. One of these challenges is to use chroma key, the ability to isolate and remove a background from a really nice jpg image and then replace it with a new background of the customer’s choice.
Volume photographers must be able to shoot high quality images at a really fast, rapid rate and frankly, they are looking for some guidance as they look to replace their dSLRs with a better solution. Some of the newer, smaller mirrorless cameras will work very well in high volume settings, and are less expensive to replace every couple of years. Plus, smarter volume shooters are are recognizing the need to add video (Hybrid) into their workflow. These two changes, dSLRs to mirrorless and stills to hybrid, may bring with them a whole new series of challenges as the volume photographer moves into what may be unfamiliar territory, but with each new challenge lies even greater opportunity as Hybrid becomes more popular.
So if you are a high volume photographer, or you’re looking to be a high volume photographer, take note that hybrid and online sharing is going to get “hot” in the next year.
