Photoshelter (creators of online portfolio platforms for photographers) have just released the latest in their series of free industry guides: The Inspiration Handbook. It’s full of hints and tips for all manner of photography and business related matters.
The Inspiration Handbook: 50 Tips From 50 Photography Trailblazers is an special one for me as I’m included (on page 24 if you want to know!).
Extra-special because it’s humbling to be included in these pages alongside some incredible photographers and industry professionals. Many of these folks I’ve admired for a long time (e.g. Zack Arias & David Duchemin) and remain my inspirations. I can’t believe I’m on the same pages as these guys!! Pinch me. Seriously.
When I took a change of course in my life 18 months ago, and set out to become a freelance photographer, I had no idea that the road would be one of such a lot of blood (not literally), sweat, (many) tears, self-doubt and financial ups and downs. So I’m really grateful to the people at Photoshelter for acknowledging me in this way. And in this kind of ‘stellar’ company. It really really helps to be encouraged so early in my career.
If you want to see some great photography and pick up some tips for your business (photography or otherwise) then the guide is available to download for free here. It’s worth the click.
