Never underestimate the power of the diversification of your skills and business.
Always try to see beyond your usual skill set, how it can be applied in different situations and can serve clients for the better.
I’ll give you an example.
My All Is Amazing brand venture. It’s a photography and videography company or as I call it - visual story telling brand. But, among the various types of photography my team and I do, I have diversified our skills to events, weddings and commercial branches. It helps me target specific clients easier, attract photographers with different skillsets and diversify business income sources.
Oh yes, here is the photo from the recent H&M campaign for South East Asia, that All Is Amazing team did in Sumba island, Indonesia. Guess under which branch of business this creative assignment goes? ;)
The future as seen from the past and the past as seen from the future. Photography becomes a useful and attractive artistic medium precisely because it takes advantage of the weaker point of art - its lack of touch with everyday reality.
There are quite a few biologists in my family, so I’m pretty much used to this discipline since childhood. I just like to know how the environment works around us and I’m interested in nature processes, connections, the surrounding world as a unit. Nevertheless, it has barely influenced my photography path I believe.
Natural light photography is all about using - and, more importantly, controlling - what’s already available to you. A few tips of what to have in mind while taking pictures at home:
Prepare and study the space;
Play with curtains;
Use a reflector;
Stay safe and don’t get bored while self isolating at home!
