Thoughts on being a one-day-photographer

reflexi贸n 1 de jun. de 2014


Few weeks ago I was asked to take the聽official photos聽聽(click on the link to see them)聽and聽videoof the聽Third International Food Festival Event held in my university (LSMU) here in聽Kaunas. I indeed felt that I had a聽huge task to perform聽and wanted to do it as good聽as I could聽(I’m kind of a super perfectionist person, nothing to do with OCD I swear)聽and wanted to better myself from 2 years ago.

I was very excited about this and I turned out pretty well. I couldn’t enjoy the festival that much聽(I mean, I was given lots of food by people surround me, which was quite cool, but I couldn’t stop 芦working禄 for more than 20 min)聽because I didn’t want to miss anything and try to tape and take pictures of everything. In the end I was very exhausted. But very happy with the result.

Since then I was asked聽two more times聽to make private videos for private events. Unfortunately I won’t be doing them this year, because I have聽no free time聽after my academic year is done.聽I will tell you why soon, stay tuned. It’s going to be BIG.聽The fact that the people enjoy my video editing and my pictures makes me think that maybe I should start聽filming & editing videos聽on a聽freelance way.聽Which, in other words means,聽start getting paid for it.聽

But truly, I have no idea if that would work or how much money I should ask for it.

What do you guys think? Should I start asking money for those kind of events?聽(for the food festival I won’t, it is always on a charity basis).聽Let me know that on the comment section down below and have an awesome day!!


Here’s the final edit of the event. I hope you enjoy it!
