I have been a professional photographer for over 12years. I specialize in portrait photography, but I also have experience in wedding, family, and landscapes. I am a member of the American Society of Media Photographers and the Society of Professional Photographers.
I am the author of the best-selling book “Professional Pictures” that was published in 2000. It is a comprehensive guide to all the things you need to know about shooting a professional portrait. I have also written more than 30 books. The first book “How to Shoot a Portrait” was published in 1997. That book was the first book that I wrote and had the biggest impact on my image and photography career. I was also an editor for “The Art of Photography” in 2006.
We all know that photography is an art, but that doesn’t mean that it must be a “professional” skill. Many people think that a portrait is just another kind of photo shoot. But I’m sure that’s not entirely the case, because a portrait is actually much more than a photo shoot.
Of all the things that I’ve learned throughout my years of photography, the idea of shooting a portrait is one of the most misunderstood. Most people simply dont know how to do it, or think that it is only done in a studio setting. That is to say, they think that a portrait is the same as a photo shoot. And they are right, because it isnt that way at all.
The truth is that portraits arent just photography. They are an artistic medium, and the best portrait artists learn how to use it in a way that will make the image feel like it was taken by someone who loves him/herself and feels a sense of humor. The more we know about how to use our own images, the better.
Well, the first thing you need to do is to find someone who will do portraits of you. If you do not like the idea, then find someone who will do it for a fee. It does not matter who, just be sure it is someone you trust.
You can find people to do portraits at events, or at the dollar store. There are plenty of good portrait artists out there, so just go to the next best thing to the dollar store for a good portrait artist. There are a lot of people to choose from, so try and find one that you like, and get what you pay for. Do not, however, pay much for portraits of your face. Even though it feels like a good idea, it is not.
I just want to mention that I have been going to a lot of events lately. It is nice to see people who do things for a living. You will never see me do it for a living. It is nice though to be seen at an event. It allows me to show you a bit of myself off and see what new things I can do.
I’m not sure I should be saying this, but it is true. You will never, ever see me in a wedding or a wedding party, and you will never see me in a bar. I don’t think anyone is getting married or getting a party. I do think that if you are, you will be wearing a dress, and that dress will be from the local mall.
It’s a problem that all too often comes up when we think of the “art” scene: everyone is doing it. The problem is that it’s not art, it’s commercialism. Commercialism is when you make money from selling something. Making art (or any other creative endeavor) is an act of love. Love and creativity go hand in hand. It’s difficult to love something you can’t see or touch.
