Continuing our test shoot series, we caught up with Ivan Weiss about his experience as a working photographer, the reasons behind test shooting, and what it's like to be a part of a creative community.
'Test Shoot' - a collaboration amongst creatives to produce images for the purpose of (non-commercial) portfolio use. Test shooting is how freelancers gain experience, develop their skills, produce portfolio work to show what they can do and a great way to meet others in the industry. We spoke to nail artist and Freelancer Club member, Shiene Mann, to hear her test shoot story.
The Freelancer Club supports creative talent with access to paid jobs, a platform to showcase portfolio work, a way to meet other creative freelancers online and offline, events, masterclasses, discounts, legal advice, downloadable documents and much more.
