ME vs “PROs”  

What’s the difference between a “guy that’s just a photographer for fun” and “the Pros?” #

🐻 I have to write catchy copy. Bear with me. 🐼

I like to put a lot of space between my approach to photography and the other guys’ approach.

Here’s what I see most often from other photographers. #

WHINING #

Other photographers seem to spend a lot of their free time whining in one way or another.

On forums, social media, YouTube, podcasts, etc.
Photographers just love to bitch.

About everything. #

ABUSING CREATIVE LICENSE #

Something else they like to do is make up for their lack of compositional/lighting skills and resources (makeup artists, hair-stylists, wardrobe stylists, money, conversational skills, imagination), with post-processing.

They go crazy. #

BEING CREEPY #

“Hey, bb, you want to do a photoshoot for your portfolio?”

I get that it comes with the territory, and you miss 💯 percent of the shots you don’t take. But it only takes a few bad apples to ruin it for everyone. Literally, every model I’ve ever talked to has bad experiences with photographers. Mostly male.

THANKS, DUDES! #


Here’s what you can expect from me. #

NO WHINING. #

NO CREEPY PMs. #

NO DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR. #

I do what I want. And I want to be a photographer. Period. #

Not some creepy fat guy out to put women in compromising situations. #

Not a photo-editor/retoucher. #

[BTW, If you’re not happy with what you get, why would you choose me in the first place? All of my work is literally on my website.]
