I was just thinking about how much I love looking at Pinterest, Etsy, Facebook and any other site that displays the art of lifestyle portraiture. I like looking at all the trends that come about or how different parts of the country specialize in a certain type of portraiture and how some areas would never have a demographic that has a need for the same thing.
It inspires me to say the very least.
Other local photographers inspire me as well. We all are sort of the same...but we do have our own style. We all run our businesses differently. But in this crazy world we shoot in...everybody knows or knows of everyone else. I love networking with other photographers and sharing ideas. Let's face it...there are more subjects to shoot than photographers. But the good thing here is when you believe in another person's work...work ethic...and integrity. It doesn't feel like competition at all. I for one am fortunate to lean on my friends for help. I have referred jobs to them. I have gotten calls to work along side of these talented people at weddings and functions.
I want to say Thank you to all the pros out there who have lended me a hand...and ear or a piece of advice. Thank you to those who trusted me with their treasured clients and shared your time...talent and ideas. And a special thank you to those rising talents who pick my brain and admire my work.
xoxoxoxo to my favorite gals...and guy.
Thank you for teaching me to water my lawn instead of climbing the fence.
