    Could it be you can't do 4K slow motion, only 120fps in 1920x1080 on the 7iii? That's how it is on the 7Sii. Check camera specs.

    Whoa, and you could probably jump start your car with it. 😉
    I had also bought a Meike battery grip with my a7rIII  (instead of the $Sony grip) and while it worked as advertised I now have 2 periodically problematic buttons on it. You do get what you pay for!

    Hi thank you for the response guys.
    I ended up buying this.

    It comes with 2 batteries, so now I only need to buy 1 more battery. It charges 4 batteries, and can be used as a large battery pack . You can also mount it on a gimbal .  Its fantastic so far!

    I'm using photography as a marketing tool more than a photography brand.  That's the thing I think you're confusing about with branding.  A photography brand is not really a brand but more of a company name.    Right now we are building a fitness brand apparel within an NPC Fitness niche, working with Influencers to market our products.  We are not an official brand yet, but there's a start to everything and if you already believe it won't be a brand then you are doomed from the start.   At the same time I am sponsored to do work in the industry for promotions, but this is a short term plan as I'm using it to build our own products also.  So I essentially I'm not marketing my photography, but using it for branding products we have in production.  We've been commissioned to do stuff I can't really talk about so I have a pretty long view of what I'm trying to do.  Photography as a tool is not my end game, but I can enjoy it still and get noticed while we branch.  It doesn't have to be an entitiy of its own.
    I have multiple funnels of income coming in, setting aside funds for business growth and investments for the future.  It's hard work and dedication.  There are failures but not everyone fails.

    Branding has never been something new, but there are failures and there are success stories as long as you're willing to commit and have a plan.  You can't live your entire life listening to all the negative things.  If you do, you already failed.    It is all about doing and taking risks, but at the same time you need steady revenue coming in from multiple sources to to help fund  your projects.  I myself believe it it is better to try and fail than not try at all and fail thinking you never tried.  
    And what your'e saying to me is the traditional way of thinking things.  It's hard to live through those methods as it isn't as appreciated now as it was back then.  I'm well aware of the financial risks and possible short term gigs and I do have many back up plans.  Don't kill my vibe man lol.

    Being in the fitness field, we figured all our clients and brand ambassadors are all like Super Heroes, so we branched out to design our own costumes as a bit of something extra!
    The last few months we've been getting requests for some of the coolest characters so I've been doing sculpts for 3D prints to conceptualize ideas.  This Supergirl costume is one of the least complexed one's we did as there wasn't much elements or complicating designs to deal with.

    I do appreciate your taking the time to offer your advice. I'm pretty good on the technical side, but have a lot to learn on the artistic side. I do try, more and more, to compose my shots well. This one, though, was shot from quite a distance with a 105mm focal length (most I had), so I am depending on the 42.2MP of the camera to give me leeway on final composition. I'm not the sort of photographer who packs multiple lenses. When I've done that in the past I spent too much time switching lenses and would rather have just one general purpose lens that will handle 95% of what I need.
    Here's the latest attempt. I also brought out the shadows a bit. How does this look?

    Andy, congratulations. I think you are right, traditional photography has lots its relevance to some degree, however there are many more new specialisations that have emerged from the digital transformation. Being a photographer is not really enough, everyone has a camera and can learn to use it with a little effort, so it come down to doing something that is worth paying more for.
    Keep it up, perhaps you turn your brand into a franchise?

    Hi Guys,
    I'm a long time user here, but I lost my account.  Formerly AndyWear, but I'm sure most of you guys probably don't know who I am anyways.
    I started my first Sony Camera with Sony A7 and am still using it til this day. I obviously do heavy post process because I enjoy it more artistically.  I plan on getting an A7iii eventually but at the moment I've been busy upgrading lighting and more important stuff as I try to scale my business.  I remember being told on here by a few people that photography as a living is no longer viable and I am glad I didn't listen to those  whispers.  A few years later now, I can say that I've been really successful in my area as an artistic fitness photographer.   As time went by, I've learned new marketing strategies and new ways to work smarter and not harder using marketing techniques I've picked up from the guys at  Slanted Lens.  I charged more, and take less jobs, but to be honest it is not for everyone, and I don't think it is for me either in the long run.  I've learned that branding is such an important thing to establish!  I just wanted to say this to give some people confidence that it is still very doable and  very lucrative if you take the right steps.
