If you are a photographer, you know how hard it is to make an impressive portfolio, from getting the right equipment to building a strong clientele. Photography requires a lot of effort and commitment especially when the industry itself is highly competitive and it is hard to monetize your work.
In this day and age, anyone with a decent camera claims to be a photographer but only a few realize that photography is actually a skill that can only be nurtured with the correct education, practice and familiarization with various softwares. Moreover, it is important to realize that a photographer is not just somebody who clicks pictures, but is also a content creator, a marketer and a designer of sorts!
