A very short post just to say that I have now submitted my Assignment 3 to my tutor.

I won’t be posting the essay / case study online as I told the interviewees that I would keep their comments to the smallest possible audience, namely the tutor and the assessors, as the interviews covered some matters that might be considered sensitive, such as earnings and mix of workload.

What I will say is that in the end I got sufficient material from interviews with four practicing photographers:

  • an abstract art photographer with a workshop / education focus
  • a commercial (mainly music industry) photographer with a strong personal practice
  • a landscape photographer with a number of photography-related income streams
  • a social documentary photographer focusing on working class communities

… and that the final essay focused on the balance of professional and personal work for the practicing photographer.
