Creative photographers understand that the creativity is from within, not from “getting ideas” from other creative photographers. You will never grow as a creative photographer as long as you are looking to copy truly creative photographers.
I am honored to be asked to speak at the Professional Photographers of San Diego County tomorrow, Tuesday at 7pm. If you are a photographer, please feel free to attend. I get an email practically every day from photographers and aspiring photographers from all over the world asking me so many questions about how I do what I do. I’ll be talking about just that!
I have faint memories of modeling in Paris, Munich, Milan and L.A when I was 20. I do know that my first job was for Elle magazine and the highly-respected photographer Toscani who created all those colorful Benetton ads. Also at that session I was accompanied by Carrie Lowell and Paulina Porzikova. I thought that was a good start.
