Pro photographers are always looking for ways to grow their businesses. Those who offer video services to their clients are able to add on fees and tap into new revenue sources. InfoTrends believes that offering video services is something more pros should explore. It used to be that shooting videos required a dedicated video camera, but it is quite easy now for pros to record video using interchangeable lens cameras (DSLR or mirrorless) since virtually all new models include video recording as a feature.

In 2010, only 16% of pros said that they offered to shoot video for clients. In subsequent studies, we saw this rate grow steadily, but it has leveled off to around 28% over the last few years.

WPPI is held at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas
