Minutes of meeting:

We are going forward with a series of interviews with professional photographers pertaining to aspects of professional photography.

Interviews will be conducted face to face and will focus on candid responses. Identities of each photographer will be strictly confidential to encourage more honest responses.

Choice of interviewee will be based on photographer's preference.

Each interviewer will transcribe contents of interview into text for editing purposes. For purposes of simplifying text and saving time, transcripts may be shortened depending on preference of interviewer/transcriber.

Jing, Wesley and Hart will each finish the interview and transcribe their interviews, to be compiled and used by each interviewer as example to show interviewee

Target dates:
28th June Mon: 1st draft of questions to be posted up

We aim for a total of 6 questions, of which will translate to 6 forum threads in total.

Questions will be phrased in this order:

1. Short intro of interviewee

2. What factors led to the decision of turning professional

3.What does professional photography entail (costs/lifestyle/retirement/insurance/capital/etc)

4. What clients really want

5. How do you quote / What do you find is an effective system of quoting

6. What equipment is important for your professional life. How do you justify the cost vs rental.



We need to clarify the exact questions which we will ask in the interview, so any comments or suggestions please post them.
