Hi

I am a photographer based on Atlanta, I have experience in photography but I am just starting as professional (meaning trying to make a living on photography), I do weddings because is what makes me some money but I like commercial and glamour, however I have no idea how can you make a living from this kind of photography.

Any suggestions? books to read? anything?. Also please give me your professional opinion on this picture, is the style I like clean cut, nice looking girls, outdoors, dressing sexy and sometimes in between showing a little to much and almost. Many models get shocked when they see this pictures which I don't find offensive, but maybe that is just me.

Thanks

Please forgive my bad English

Andy Pearlman had a great post about this in January. Rest of the thread might help too.

You make money at it by shooting weddings, babies, and maybe stock sales.

I'd love to check out your photo; However, with a long path name, user name and password protection waiting at the end, it's hard.
Keep shooting, build experience, images and put your stuff out there. If they like it, they'll come.

First Welcome to the zoo here, there's some realanimals here, but hey aren't we all in some fashion. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

If your asking for a critique, all I can say is I'm not a fan of this particular pose. I think the legs bent and to the side showing her butt isn't really doing anything for her. She is a pretty model it appears. JMO.

I'm fairly new here myself so take it for what it's worth. Others will give a better opinion than mine.

As for making money, all I can say is, keep doing weddings and putting your name out there. You might want to get this years edition of "Photographers Market" as it has info on where, how and requirements for submitting photos.
I got one through Amazon.com. Other than that, build a portfolio, keep posting here as there's a lot to learn. Some of the best I feel are here to help.

Good Luck [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

MAKE money??

It never dawned on me that people make money at this! I have thousands of dollars invested in gear and I shell out tons of money on every shoot. I have a shoot coming up in a few days with a professional body-painter who's going to paint one of my favorite models. I'm paying the painter, her materials, AND the model.

One problem with trying to make money at it is that every decision then has to make business sense. Last summer I was renting out space in an old mill building in Lowell MA and hiring models to shoot there. We had the whole 4 story building to ourselves and had a blast finding places in it to shoot - sometimes with studio lights, sometimes with available light - nude clothed, whatever. There would be no way to justify that kind of fun on a business basis to a client. I just do this for fun - making money at it has never crossed my mind.

I seem to have the same business plan, but perhaps someday I'll make it up in volume.
