Check out my Takeover of AdoramaPix's Instagram & Blog Interview!
I am really excited to share that this week I am doing a take over of AdoramaPix's Instagram with a mix of new and favorite photos & stories from my adventures. Accompanying the Takeover is an interview on their blog where I share my story of becoming a photographer, tips for aspiring photographers and more. Plus, on my Instagram we are giving out an 11x17" metal or canvas print! See you there!
Excerpt from my interview:
Advice for others starting out?
"For aspiring photographers starting out that are looking at college I would recommend a degree in business or marketing and then take photography classes as your electives. Much of the real struggle in making a living as a photographer comes from understanding how to run a successful small business, taxes, marketing, and operations. Artists are entrepreneurs. Learn the fundamentals, exposure triangle, and compositional elements as elective courses and by experience. Create a portfolio and revise it at least yearly. Don’t be afraid to cringe at your old work, if it burns it means it is working. Devote your free time to going out and actually using your gear to photograph your niche subjects. Join your local camera club and surround yourself with people who love photography as much as you do. Also, many professional photographers are on YouTube vlogging and sharing their lives and struggles. It is an amazing resource. Find a mentor or three in your genre to watch, study and learn what works and doesn’t in the real world."
