I have recently updated my Porfolio and I am looking for some feedback please
Also, just a note to let everyone know that i'm moving back down south to Worcestershire, before Christmas. I hope there will be more work for me down there as up here in Scotland, there's not so much.
Thanks in advance for feedback!
I'm thinking you've accomplished an aim via the publications listed and probably continue to attract higher level work, but I'd expect could comfortably achieve more in other genres. It might be satisfying enough to have made a useful career, but it'd be cool to see more high impact pictures too. Call it artsy or whatever, but I think you'd pull that off easily enough If you aimed for it.
Thank you. Yes you're right. I do want to steer away from adult work and do more edgy, arty, creative stuff! I'm dying to do high end fashion stuff etc!
Hopefully in the near future
Thanks for feedback.
I think the problem is similar all over the UK. Plenty of work really, but not much that anyone wants to pay money for. All I see on the FB pages and calls is "TF". Other than that it is cut-throat.
It's not really 'work' though is it. It's just like-minded people meeting up to create images from their respective sides of the camera purely for their own pleasure - a hobby. 'Work' in that context is a misnomer IMO - neither party expects to be paid to deliver a marketable product to a client.
If a photographer describes himself on model sites as semii-pro or pro then of course there's a natural expectation that he's producing images for financial gain and therefore the model should rightfully expect to be paid. Whereas amongst amateur photographers - those who have no market for their images - TF is the ever-increasing norm.
I think you have a great portfolio. I hope that I will be able to shoot you at some point. You're in my favourites folder already. I am glad you're moving back down south, it makes it more possible that I may get a chance to shoot you in the future. Fingers crossed.
