entertainment industry coach question 611: Should I have my set photography and wedding photography on the same site?

I've seen plenty of Still Photographers do it, that does not mean I agree with it. I think if you want to market yourself as a Still Photographer you have set stills on your site. The only exception would be to have your artistic stills in a section of your site. This can give photo editors, directors, producers, etc., insight into your mind and your artistry.

For me the distinguishing factor is: if it's another way you make money like wedding, music, fashion photography, I advise against having it on the same site. The main reason is because many people who hire you come from the opinion that set still photography is a completely different craft. You're not using your own lighting, you're capturing moments in the filming that will sell the film, and you're around celebrities... which leads me to another exception. If you're fairly new to set photography, but you were huge in music photography and photographed some of the biggest names in music, those photos can be showcased to give credibility to your ability to work with talent.
