I’ve seen a lot of well respected, and some not-so-known photographers sound off on white backdrop shooting and as someone who LOVE’S it, I wanted to chime in yet again. If you’ve read my blog over the years I’ve spoke

Non standard

There are many, many rules for photography. There are many people who shoot non standard ways and have non standard thinking. The people who are successful in shooting non standard, are those who know and understand the standard thinking. Now that I’ve filled the “non standard” quota, lets move on… This weekend past, I was

I’m the best photographer in the state

As you may or may not know, I’ve stopped my workshops. I’ve lost my love of teaching them, so I’ve been the student. I’ve not found any workshops worth attending here, but I’m on the look out. Either way, I’ve noticed a new trend amongst photographers that is silly, sickening and stupid. What’s the trend?

The power of music

I posted a question a few years ago; What’s the single most important thing at your shoot? I got a wide variety of answers such as camera, good lens, back up bodies and lens. Many great things. For me, I answered it simply; Music.

Let’s talk fashion…honestly

Let’s cut through the B.S. and talk about something that annoys me; Fashion photography in a non fashion state. As the days go by, I find myself shying away from model photography more and more. Why? Simple; I live in a glamour state! It is NOT my job to educate people on their career choices,

Simple Image

I see many photographers reverse engineering images and I feel bad for them. The reason I feel bad for them is the fact that I was one of those guys. I would sit for HOURS looking at images trying to figure out how they lit them.

The Flake Factor

For the most part, “flaking out” is part of the online modeling world as most serious models will never flake. For some models this is their job, or what they want to be a job or income earner. If you want to make money you can’t develop the reputation of not showing up to work. Online models are those who see photos and want pretty pictures on their Facebook or what not.

My contributions to the photographic world!

It makes me proud to see students, current and past, display works of mine taken at one on ones, workshops or group settings. If I may say with out ego, it makes me equally thrilled to see images obtained at my workshop have the most comments, likes and lists.

So you want to be a model photographer part I

To be a Professional photographer it takes a LOT more than a desire. It takes countless hours of promotion, self promotion, education and willingness to learn via bumps, bruises and scrapes. Much like my “So you want to be a model?” series, this will be broken down into several different groups; starting out, halfway there, there and what next. Let’s get right to it.

The sad truth about tattoos and modeling

The dirty on tattoos and modeling. I know this is a touchy subject, but it’s one I want to discuss. Tattoos are a form of self expression, but this blog post will discuss if there’s room for self expression in an industry that sells looks.
