to the photogs



Occasionally someone will be extremely kind enough to write and let me know that some obscure thing I’ve mentioned, either through here, or in direct conversation has helped them out somehow. Either regarding editing style, equipment I use, companies I work with, tips on shooting, or where exactly the bodies of wedding coordinators that try to use my images without permission end up.


In regards to technical ability, there is nothing that any photographer alive can show you that you can’t go out and figure out on your own with tons of practice. That said, there are really great resources for technique, lighting, marketing, running your business, etc. that are worth their weight in gold in the long run.  But always keep in the back of your mind that anyone promising you fast track fame, fortune, awkwardly long hugs, or free candy, is most likely a shady butt-munch. That’s the scientific term.

If you have any questions about the businesses I work with, locations in my photos, or whatever minuscule photography tips I know, tricks or general info, I absolutely encourage you to ask. If it’s something completely over my head (and there’s a really good chance of that) I’ll find someone that knows and we’ll both learn something. There’s absolutely nothing that I do that you’re unable to do yourself.  It may possibly be something I do that I have no clue how I do it, but we’ll figure it out together. If it’s a really, really hard question, we’ll probably need to meet and discuss it over beers, and I’m ok with that.

  • anngeedee - It’s very refreshing to hear your view on sharing knowledge. I wish more of us in the photography community were open to helping instead of trying to hoard. I came to your site through Zack’s feature specifically because Tulsa isn’t a common home base for a traveling photographer and it also happens to be my hometown. Perhaps I could think of some really really hard questions to ask you so that next time I’m in town we could discuss over a beer or 3.ReplyCancel
