  • Freelancers - where your work comes from?

    Hi all,

    A question for the freelancers. I'm curious where the work comes from?
    Do you go through producers? Meet with Agencies? Do you contact photographers direct? The internet? Any other channel? Which relationships do you feel generate the most work?

    Mine primarily started with meeting a few photographers but has spread by word of mouth to their producers and other photographers.

    All of the above.

    Being a freelancer is the exact same thing as being an agency, except that you're a single person, and you don't even have to be that. There is no retouching institute, this is not SSSR.
