How’s That Photography Thing Coming Along?

It’s been a long while since my work or artistry was considered a “thing”. But whenever I find someone belittling their art as a thing, this blog always came to mind. Enjoy.

A beautiful aspiring model said to me last night “Well I am going to give this modeling thing a […]

Boring Is Not Sexy… Being Present In Front of the Camera

Most often when I speak with fellow photographers, we all have our issues when working with different models. No two photographers really want the same thing when producing an image, however, there is one thing we ALL have in common. We all HATE boring models. I […]

Stop Bragging – You Might Get Robbed

Social media is an amazing thing (be it Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr and the like). You can stay in contact with friends and family around the globe. You can follow your favorite celebrities and see what latest antics they are up to. You can view the latest fight on World Star. Social media allows you to […]

Fight Against Your Pretty

I am exhausted. I just got in from a photo shoot (well 3, honestly) and to say the least it is a very long day. Only those in the industry can truly understand and appreciate the grueling day that we go through. Those outside of the industry think we just breeze in at the last […]

Bookers – The Gatekeepers To The Gods

This blog is from the archives and happened to be one of the most controversial blogs I have ever written. So controversial that it actually got me blocked from shooting for a few agencies for a while. I didn’t care. I always advocated for models ever since I got […]

The Right Light

I was at a lighting seminar a few years back during the New York City PhotoExpo. It was the big one that comes to New York City held at the Jacob Javits center in midtown Manhattan.  You know the one, where all the new photographic toys and gizmos come out.  You walk around salivating over […]

Controlling Your Brand

There is a lot of malice in the world today. Most of it is intentional. People hating on you for whatever reason. Spreading lies, gossip and ill-will. Unfortunately you cannot control all the bad publicity that may come your way, when a person hates on you it let’s you […]

Clients Pick the Worst Images

There is an old photographic saying:
“When the photograph is good, everyone gets praise. When the photograph is bad, the photographer gets the blame.”
I have never known a quote to be more true. Because of this quote, I have come to realize that we (the photographer) are the director of every photo shoot that we […]

The Making of a Well Equipped Model

Yes, it’s me again, and yes another blog is coming your way, just after a short interval of time since the “oath” blog. When people come to my blog (especially models), I always want them to walk away with something that may help them along the way. A lot […]
