Designing a photography department:

Staffer vs. Freelancer

There are many ways to provide photographic support.  Just two of them are the staff photographer or the freelance route.  Both have pros and cons.  The freelancer carries his own insurance and provides his own benefits and retirement plan.  He is available on a different schedule and may not have as much vested interest in the project.  He is available by the job may come in when needed and leave.  Consequently, more advanced planning is often necessary to optimize his useage.

The staff photographer on the other hand is always available.  He is on the payroll and a member of the company.  He must be provided benefits such as healthcare, retirement and other perks.  One should remember not to abuse the staff member's time.  Like the freelancer he is a professional.  He does not live, eat or sleep at the company and should be treated as the professional he/she is.
