Photography is a hobby in which a lot of people have. But what does it take to become a freelance photographer? What equipment do you need?

To become a freelance photographer there is not a lot of equipment you need. Whilst building up your portfolio you can use your phone camera. However, there is no harm in buying a camera when you are 100% sure this is what you want to do. Everything you buy is an added accessory. Most phones will do the job.

When starting up, you will need to create a portfolio. My suggestion would be to use Instagram. This way you can gain a following and have people sharing your images. Remember to use hashtags and tagging companies to gain more of an outside audience.

Just remember to watermark your photo with your desired name. Always remember it takes time to grow. It won’t happen overnight, so keep trying and keep sharing photos.
