As one of many photographers in Pittsburgh PA, I can assure you that just like with any other industry, the competition can be fierce. And while you never want to give your competitors any reason to gain a leg up on you and your business, a little unity might even be beneficial.
Here are a few ways that dealing with fellow photographers can help you go a long way.
1. Networking groups can actually lead to some opportunities.
2. You can learn from those more experenced than yourself.
3. You can pick up some ideas you may not have though about before.
The possibilities are somewhat endless.
