DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the average photography company is only 1-2 people?
And that although businesses want to grow, it’s often hard to do so?
Whether starting out, or with an established business, the biggest issue continues to be how to build our businesses without compromising standards and quality, not to mention being paid for our craft. It’s a career we chose because we are passionate, but that shouldn’t mean we have to work for peanuts.
Shootzu is here to give the power back to the professionals. It’s an app designed by one of our very own community members to match professional shooters with photography and videography companies (the eHarmony of the creative world, if you will!).
