    circle of light



    When it comes to creating lighting that’s compelling, lighting that fits the subject at hand and lighting that can be accomplished quickly and efficiently, understanding of the effect of light placement and position is essential. Certainly, I’m all for experimentation and thinking outside the box, but you need a baseline to operate from.

    Time is money, and when you’re on set/location interacting with clients and models, the last thing you want is the perception that you’re winging it (even if you are).

    second shooters



    More and more wedding photographers are hiring second shooters for the wedding day, with so many couples now requesting this “extra coverage.” Two wedding photographers means more images and angles to choose from.

    There are plenty of things you need to consider when hiring a second shooter. These include knowing the difference between an employee and an independent contractor, second shooter contracts and handling income tax, including the requirements for issuing Form 1099s.

    5 reasons to specialize



    When I first fell in love with photography, I shot everything and anything. I was going to countless workshops and soaking everything up that I could. I was in my learning phase, and I really didn’t know what I wanted to shoot.

    Looking back, I really don’t think I even knew who I was as a creative. I distinctly remember getting an inquiry for a family session, and I was so excited. My son Roman was only six months old, and I had only just started to charge for my photography services.
