Is our industry saturated with the same type of photographers?
Are you one of them?
I was. Until I got sick of being a rerun.
Rather than find yourself in photography "cliques", oh lord no more high school please, go look for those inspirations that are beyond words "different".
You don't have to love their art, just look at how they are doing it for the true inspiration of their project.
It doesn't even have to look good to you, you'll be able to spot someone who is creating for themselves. And this is artistic motivation!
You will be woken with excitement to do YOUR OWN THING.
Commonality is what makes it harder for you to be picked by a client. You are just another apple in the bag if you are like those around you.
So easily we are drawn in by the top 10 industry leader styles but what makes theirs "the best"? Popularity? Again, it's just all high school.
A high profile name does not equal true talent. I find photographers so deep into their art they don't care about fame or Facebook likes. And I am more inspired by them!
Comment below and tell me someone you LOVE that is NOT high profile and not the traditional "fill-in-leader-name" copycat.
I want to see true outside-of-the-box talent.
