London, Kent and the South East are very popular with creatives. The region attracts the successful companies, ventures and major projects that they want to support whether they are in film, art, design, fashion, photography etc. London is alive with the opportunity and talent which creatives thrive on. It is the perfect place to collaborate and find exciting projects.
The challenge is the amount of competition in the region. There is also a tendency for some companies and ventures to ask you to do things for free or at a greatly reduced rate.
This is a deadly trap for creatives who want to show off their ability. It is easy to say “yes” to these requests and think we’ll impress them and so we will win well-paid work.
Unfortunately, this strategy doesn’t work. People don’t value the things or services they get for free.
