Dear Right Moves,
I will be graduating from RIT next year. I’ve been speaking to photographers and assistants. Does the old paradigm of a photographer having his own studio still make sense?

Dear Spacing Out,
The new work paradigm for photographers is to share a studio and workspace with other artists or to work from your home and rent a studio space for your shoots. You must become a member of ASMP or APA and network with other emerging talents who will be needing space as well.
