Even if you stay the same, the world won't. My dad had basically the same job his whole life. As a pro photographer or videographer in 2018, you won't have the same luxury. Our jobs change every year, and if you don't keep up, you probably won't get to keep your job. If you're wildly successful today, you'll probably still be doing well next year - but in five years, everything you've built could be gone. My advice: Get comfortable being uncomfortable. Keep one foot firmly grounded in what's working for you today, but move your other foot forward. Keep track of upcoming trends by staying close to young people and watching how they interact with photos and videos. Experiment, jump on the latest trends and have fun.

Canon has been the #1 camera manufacturer for decades, and they beat Nikon, Sony, Fuji, and all the others with leading-edge innovation. That seems to have changed in the last few years...but Chelsea has a theory that they're just charging up for the ultimate mirrorless camera. Is it true?

Sign up for your FREE trial to The Great Courses Plus here: http://ow.ly/7atf30k3oOv

The Great Courses Plus is currently available to watch through a web browser to almost anyone in the world and optimized for the US, UK and Australian market. The Great Courses Plus is currently working to both optimize the product globally and accept credit card payments globally.

Two years ago a company used one of our most well-known photos on the cover of an iPhone case without our permission. This was misleading in a couple of ways; the product seemed to advertise that it could produce the results in our picture (it couldn't) and some people assumed we were endorsing the product. The product was in some of the biggest stores in Australia and New Zealand, including Target, and selling for about $70 AUD.

We tried to reach out and handle it nicely without getting lawyers involved, but the people who stole our photo immediately lawyered-up and tried to ignore us.

So we sued them. That wasn't easy! We had to hire lawyers in Australia, and finding an attorney was REALLY HARD. The defendants tried to get off without paying a fair amount... but in the end, it cost them a lot.

How much did we get? We'll show you our bank statement. Don't forget to subscribe to the Picture This Photography Podcast in your favorite podcasting app.

The US Army has banned the use of all DJI drones. DJI is a Chinese company, and a US memo accuses DJI of giving YOUR secret images and data to the Chinese government to use to plan attacks against the American military and infrastructure like drinking water, farms, and power plants. That's a SERIOUS accusation! We dig deep into the privacy of your data and make surprising and disturbing discoveries.

Rumors indicate that Canon and Nikon are planning full-frame mirrorless cameras to compete with the Sony a9, a7R III, and a7 III. If you want to go mirrorless, should you wait for those announcements or sell your camera and switch now? We can't perfectly predict the future, but we'll do our best to give you some idea of what to expect in 2018.

It's impossible to view your own work objectively. When you look at your pictures, you remember the movement, sound, and emotion from the experience. Sometimes, you have to trust others to judge your work.
