Where do you get your portfolio started

One of the best ways to get better at being a photographer and making a name for yourself, or at least a portfolio worth sharing is trade photo shoots. Commonly known as TF, TFP or some other combination of letters it is a scourge but necessary part of the process of getting better at creating people focused pictures. You could grab your spouse, best friend or child of course but here is what happens, they get tired of being your model very fast and being the subject of all your pictures on Instagram or Facebook. Or they could just not be attractive or cute, which is a big importance to those wishing to gain social media followers.

Hey photographer-you don't need a website of your own, yet.

Way back in the day when I decided to take a passion to create photos seriously I thought a website is a requirement. Those Hollywood photographers would write posts about own your space and how important that was. Websites are inexpensive for the most part, why not have one.

Why confessions of a failed photographer?

I mentioned that I was a failed professional photographer to a recent subject and they adamantly said I am not a failed photographer. That is right, I am not a failed photographer but a failed professional photographer. There is a difference, I can create a great photo but suck at the rest of the stuff, marking, networking, selling, and the like.
