A freelance product photographer is a photographer who specializes in product photography on a per contract basis rather than being an employee of a single company. Product photography is a subset of commercial photography that focuses on photographing tangible products. Typically, the photographs are used for advertising or product listings.
In addition to the technical skill required to become a product photographer, a freelance photographer also needs to know how to connect with clients and locate job opportunities. Freelance product photographers can use the Internet to search for jobs via job listing sites such as Indeed.com, PeoplePerHour.com and many others.
