The way we view the process is pretty much like this. You can choose to work just one project or to work on a series of projects and see how much they take up your time. To apply to become a freelance photo editor, your resume has to be as concise and as detailed as possible (you can find an interview checklist for your resume here). You should have experience in a variety of areas, and you should be capable of working independently (this is very important!) and with minimal support (you can hire someone to edit your portfolio to help you with this!).
What skills do I need to become a freelance photo editor?
One of the things I always look for in a good freelance photographer is the ability to create compelling images. To do this, you’ll need a strong eye for colour, clarity and balance, as well as great composition and editing skills. You should be able to create quality stills using your favourite camera settings, and you should be able to produce some great quality editing images from those images as well. You should also have the willingness to follow directions and follow through on some of the directions.
What is the difference between a freelance photo editor and a freelance editorial assistant?
A freelance photo editor performs basic editing tasks, such as removing blemishes, removing colour, adding text, and adding details to your images. They’re also responsible for setting up and running a photoshoot for you, as well as providing you with images to complete an article for your publication.
A freel editorial assistant is responsible for:
Managing your portfolio for the photographer
Editing images for the publication
Providing quality images for the publication
What is the minimum amount of money I need to earn for becoming a freel photo editor?
I recommend starting at around €1000 per month. I like to try and keep at least €500 a month, but this is a personal preference and this may differ from publication to publication.
This depends on the size of the freelance photography industry and the type of project it’s for you to be a member of, but I believe I need a minimum of at least €500 a month to be able to cover most of the daily costs of running a freel photography company.
This will take you through to around €5000 a month when taking on your own shoots and managing your own website. (I also use a freel editing website which I’ve created as a personal business)
