What makes someone a professional photographer?

It’s an intriguing question. Many photographers start out working ‘part time’ in photography until their business can sustain itself.

But what does that mean in regards to their ‘profession’?

I sit down with my friend, Anthony Collins, to discuss that very topic. We’ve got over four decades of photography experience between us so surely we’ll be able to come to a consensus, right?

You’ll have to listen to find out…and quit calling me Shirley!

About Anthony Collins

commerical photographer anthony collins

“I am a New York City-based photographer and I specialize in editorial and assignment photography, shooting nationally and internationally for Fortune 500 companies, advertising agencies, and design firms of all sizes.

Using my background in electrical engineering and my great love of art I strive to deliver strong, dynamic, and beautiful images. I love working with clients of all kinds, whether they are the board of directors or the members of a creative team. I am project-focused, technically flexible, and efficient. Most importantly, I am sensitive to my clients needs at all times.

In my twenty years of experience I have traveled with my camera to more than forty countries—from the Arctic Circle to the Great Barrier Reef.

If you need a photographer to hang out of a helicopter or hang in a boardroom, I’m the one you want!”
