Starting Out as a Photographer

Around this time of year, I get a lot of emails from photo students about to graduate. I think part of their curriculum is to go out and ask photographers they like how they got their start. So, when Andrew Torres emailed me a few weeks ago, I decided to make a blog post out...

    This is a great list with lots of helpful information. I have a quick question, which tilt-shift lens do you find is more versitile, the 17mm or 24mm? I’m an architectural historian and part of my job is documenting historic buildings through photography. I’ve gotten by with correcting the keystone effect in photoshop, but it would be really great to do that in camera. I shoot a mix of interiors and exteriors so I was looking for a tilt-shift that I could use for both (if possible). Thanks!ReplyCancel

      I find myself using the 24mm more than the 17mm. The 17 is really wide and I’m not a fan of using it in small interiors. Makes everything look too distorted. That being said, when you need a 17mm, there’s nothing better. I would plan in getting both, but start with the 24mm.ReplyCancel

    Marketing 101 for Commercial Photographers

    I think one of the most challenging aspects to being a commercial photographer is the marketing. It’s ironic because we are in a commercial marketing environment, yet reaching the people we want to hire us can seem voodoo and difficult. In my experience, no matter how good you are or how “cool” you are, if...

      Branch Science – Portland Monthly January 2010

      I really liked how this feature shoot came out in the January 2010 issue of Portland Monthly. Art directed by Michael Novak, the two of us first drove down to Corvallis, OR to photograph OSU scientist Steve Strauss in his grove of genetically modified trees. The trees in the above shot have been engineered so...

        Life’s a Beach Anywhere

        As long as you have Adirondack chairs and can feel the breeze on your face.
