“How do you market yourself against low-priced competition? Have a unique selling point, be different, the techniques that you use, that you are better, and believe it,” said professional videographer Dan Pamintuan who spoke on Day 2 of Photo World Asia 2017, Jan 27.

“Each camera angle reveals a new face of your subject, so be aware of your angles, that you meant it to be because you are emphasizing a point,” said Dan.

“Also, be intentional with your camera movements. Allow your viewers to absorb your intentional camera movement,” Pamintuan added.

Filmmaker Nana Buxani showed powerful images from her social documentaries on Day 2. “Pre-production is very important in making a documentary,” she said.

Another speaker, Atty. Kris de Jesus, one of the early adopters of drone photography, spoke about CAAP rules aside from the technical aspects of drone photography.

Professional photographer Jay Jallorina spoke about digital asset management. “Have a system in place to protect your photos and videos, for easy retrieval, systematic work environment, responsive delivery of output, and data security and certainty,” he said.

“Always be making money, ABMM,” is a mantra to Jay. “How to price? Think of what you need, what it’s worth to your client, and do something different. Price at the premium level.”
