How do I write a photography project?
A photography project should be personal and allow the photographer to explore a subject that interests them. It may take months or even years to complete but it is important that the photographer enjoys the process and doesn’t feel rushed. It is a way to experiment with different approaches to photography and learn new skills.
Once the photographer has established a topic they should start researching any information that they can find on it. This could be through books, articles, archives or browsing the internet for current photo projects that cover similar themes. It is also a good idea to create a concept map to help establish connections between any ideas that the photographer might have for the project.
It is vital that the photographer has a clear understanding of the topic they are working on as this will help when writing their proposal. Whether they are trying to win a client for a shoot or applying for a grant, the photographer needs to ensure that their proposal is detailed and easy to read.
Having an in-depth understanding of the project will ensure that the photographer can answer any questions from clients about what will be involved and give an accurate timeline. It will also help the client understand if the photography project is something that they can work with or not.
