Being recognized by a photo style is one of the biggest compliments a photographer can get.
Who doesn't want to be picked out of a crowd?
If there is ever any kind of success in this industry, it isn't about the number of fans or followers you have.
It's when someone recognizes your work without your name even being on it.
This success means you have stayed true to who you are, what you create, and without a single apology because someone doesn't like it.
Just shooting for you and marrying your art.
It’s more than picking up your camera and clicking.
It’s seeing a vision.
It’s not a fad.
You aren’t chasing what others are doing.
Actually, quite the opposite.
You are writing a cohesive book.
One that doesn’t differ no matter what page you are on.
It takes guts, going against the grain and not caring if it is the latest fad.
It’s more interesting than anything else out there.
How does one do this?
It takes a feeling.
It’s not about the clients.
It’s not about how many sessions.
It’s about the passion of an artist and the story that they tell.
And they aren’t telling this story for others.
It’s for them.
We all use the word “artist” as someone who is a photographer.
But here I’m talking about something & someone much deeper.
It's when you see a painting on a wall at a museum and immediately know who created the work of art.
It might not even be a painting you love.
But it’s one you respect.
The artist didn’t apologize for the scribble or the dripped paint.
They embraced it.
An artist finds a strong deep feeling within themselves and uses a tool to communicate it.
