This project thrives on the input you give. The more photographers explain how they work on their photo projects, the more interesting the information we can provide at Documenstory.

Fill in the survey (anonymously), think about your way of working and learn how others approach a project. The results are regularly updated and highlighted in interesting blog posts with insights.

I’m very interested in how you plan your photo project. I’m not interested in the final result you achieve with your project, but in the road to it. I’m curious about that. How do you handle certain things? Where do you find your inspiration? Do you start with an elaborate idea or does it gradually take shape? In order to get an answer to this, I made this survey.

This form consists of a number of topics, divided into a few sections:

  1. General information (5 questions)
  2. Preparation (5 questions)
  3. Inspiration (7 questions)
  4. Working method (15 questions)
  5. Edit (7 questions)
  6. Output (3 questions)

Some questions can be filled in directly via a multiple choice or checkbox. For other questions you may need a little more time, for example to think about your motives or to take a closer look at your own way of working. You will notice that many of the choices you make are made subconsciously.
