wow, you are truly great for being self-taught! It's people like you who can show others what the world truly is like!! Thanks so much for following my photography blog, the vintage camera. I cannot wait to see more that you post! :) emily
You’re so welcome Emily, and thanks for checking out my work as well! There’s definitely a lot more to come =)
Love the pictures! So im curious when did your work first start to get noticed by people and start getting offers to shoot?
Thanks man! I’d say I started getting noticed and having offers to shoot things for pay about a year after I started shooting, maybe a year and a half. But I spent that year shooting at every possible opportunity and constantly posting the best stuff I’d shot. I look back on the stuff I posted and it’s so embarrassing to me that it almost hurts, but you have to start somewhere and at the time I thought those photos were really good. And they were good enough for people to start noticing that I took photos!
So shoot a lot, post your best work and make it well known. Then keep shooting and evolve until you look back on your work and ask yourself, “What on earth was I doing back then?” That just means you’ve gotten better. =)
