In the field of photography, we usually think of two main divisions: retail photographers and commercial photographers. Retail photography includes wedding, engagement, family portraits, and similar projects that individuals typically hire photographers for on a small-scale basis. Commercial photography, on the other hand, involves larger projects. The photos you see in magazines, books, many websites, and real estate listings are some examples of commercial photography. Of course, a commercial photographer may specialize in one of a number of different subcategories: interiors, architecture, real estate, or even the creation of stock images for purchase online. In this post, we’d like to introduce you to a few of those different subcategories and also give you an idea of what to expect when you choose to work with Ellis Creek Photography as your South Carolina-based partner in commercial photography.
