Thought of the Day: When someone asks you to work for free “for the exposure,” what they’re really saying is they’re too cheap to pay for something that’s entirely for their own benefit. It is up to me to decide what benefits me and doesn’t, especially when it’s for commercial use. Working “for exposure” for someone no one knows, who you don’t need in your book, and when no one is likely to ever even know that it was your work to begin with, is a complete waste of time. Seriously. SMH.
If you haven’t checked out Google+ yet, it’s a great site for photographers to share their work, inspirations, tips and more. I’m fairly active there. So, if you’re on Google+, please feel free to add me to your Photographer Circle! I’d love to connect with you there, too!
While I tend to share my work here on Tumblr, I find it easier to interact with friends and fans on Facebook, where two-way communication is easier. I regularly share my work, studio and styling tips, creative musings, equipment reviews and more. Plus, I you’ll find engaging discussions on fashion and beauty, photography, lighting, post production and being creative on a day-to-day basis.
If you’re on Facebook, drop by my page to say hello! I hope to see you soon!
I find inspiration everywhere - in the things I see, hear, smell, taste and touch. When my senses are stimulated I become inspired. When I am inspired, I wish to create something that will inspire, excite and entertain others in return. If what I create then inspires others to do the same, a beautiful cycle is born. If you inspire me, I will do my best to inspire someone else… and so on… and so on.
Inspiration is contagious. Please pass it on!
Apparently my vivid imagination is a good thing! ;)
