Tips For A New NJ Videographer

By Charles Wallace

Some people know from when they are knee-high, what they career they want to pursue. Others just keep changing till they find what fits them, or you end up turning a hobby into a full-time job. The best way to excel at your work is to love what you do. For people interested in capturing moments and telling stories, being an NJ videographer can be one way for you to make money, and also do what you love.

These days, anyone with a phone can take and edit a video, but for you to be good enough to film other people events, you need some training. You can start by taking online classes, or even working as an apprentice for a well-established videographer. After you have learned the basic skills, make sure you progress and get a certificate to show that you know what you are doing.

Once you have the knowledge, you need the equipment in order to start working. This will be the video cameras and computers for editing. At school, you should learn which cameras are best for which jobs, and also which applications you will require in order to work. Before you save enough money to get your own equipment, you can rent some in order to continue working.

After you get the training and the tools of the trade, you will need the clientele. If you plan to start as a freelancer you will have to aggressively market yourself, in order for you to be well known. It is easier to initially work with a well-known company, and then from here you can slowly build your name. Initially, when marketing yourself, you might need to use some incentives like discounts, in order to attract clients.

You should know how to sell yourself and your work, to potential clients. This will mean knowing how to negotiate, and also when to compromise. You will also have to learn how to seize various opportunities and use them to market yourself. Once you get a number of clients, make sure you always respond to any questions or suggestions in a timely manner.

As a beginner, no matter how good you are, you might not have the privilege to be picky with the jobs you take. You will need all the exposure you can get, in order to make money and also establish yourself. As you get better, pay special attention to a specific field then make it your specialty.

You are required to keep pushing yourself. This will allow you to grow and get better at what you do. You, however, need to carefully balance so that you do not overwork, or take on jobs which you cannot handle. This might end up having bad results, which could affect your image.

Pricing is also another factor. As you get better you rates will definitely go higher, but make sure that you are not too expensive or too cheap. Constantly look at the prices other people are charging, in order to stay within a reasonable range.
