I’m an independent NYC-based editorial photographer with five years experience and a long list of well known clients. For the last few months, I’ve been working on some personal projects with a commercial feel in an attempt to get some meetings with art buyers and transition into advertising photography. Is this what I should be doing as a first step? Any ideas or suggestions from photographers who have made this leap would be appreciated. —Anonymous
