A Tip In Street Photography Vol. 8: Compose Later

A Tip In Street Photography Vol. 8: Compose Later

This week I have a short write-up for you guys, not because this tip is less important... But because it's straight to the point. When people give you advice about street photography it's typically cliche tips like "Get close to your subject", "Don't take a shot, create one" or "Use the rule of thirds". Those things are cool and perhaps beneficial for experienced street photographers, but for someone beginning, they are a lot less practical.

5 Ways To Make Money As A Freelancer

5 Ways To Make Money As A Freelancer

It's been a while since we've talked about freelance work, so long, that those who are new to the blog probably weren't aware that this was even something that I dabble in. Well, for those wondering, it is. In fact, the majority of my income over the past 2 years has come from photography.

I can say this statement confidently now, as I have a couple of clients that I work with a few times each month. To have this kind of consistency is amazing, but early on, it wasn't this simple. I legit had to grind! How did I get to this level? I constantly introduced myself to random people, I actively emailed those whom I wished to work with and I was never afraid to ask for the sell. When none of that worked I ventured into other avenues... And that's what I want to talk about today.

My Favorite Street Photographs of 2016 Captured With iPhone

After a bit of back and forth the store associate finally gave in and allowed us to purchase the phone, my girlfriend then turned to me and asked; "What phone should I get?". I looked at her puzzled, I thought people only purchased iPhones.
