Show 07: How not to be like everybody else and succeed as YOU!

10 Mar

[ week’s show is all about succeeding as YOU! As emerging photographers, we sometimes get too caught up in ‘what we should be doing’ to be successful. With everyone having an opinion as you frantically find your feet, it can be pretty overwhelming and a lot of the time we miss the fact that the only way we can truly be successful both professionally and personally is when we are ourselves.

This week, it’s a little bit different. No emerging photographers, but two guys at the top of their game who I just HAD to pull together for this discussion!

Firstly, joining me this week is David Esquire from Esquire Photography. David is an awesome wedding photographer from Orange County, USA who has a larger than life, fun persona which is really infectious and great to be around. With a photographic background spanning three decades, David’s career has seen him photograph weddings, veer off into another direction photographing extreme sports in the 90’s and then back again shooting weddings bringing a fabulous signature style and ‘good time guy’ attitude in all that he does.

Then we have the ace Richard P Walton from Photo Graffiti in Newport, South Wales. Richard has had an amazing start to his career seeing him receive commissions from fashion magazines, high street clothing and footwear brands as well as many fashion assignments for Voice magazine and also MTV. In January this year, Richard was also crowned ‘Overall Portrait Winner’ of the International SWPP 20×16 Print Competition 2011. His no holds-barred approach to what he does allows him to keep producing his signature style of imagery which continues to gain him both artistic and commercial praise.

We’d also absolutely love to hear your views, comments and feedback on this show, so please leave your comments in the space below.

    I’m not even done watching, but you guys are so RIGHT ON! I love David’s analogy of what it feels like when the camera is mashed up to my face. It really does feel like really good sex. Especially when I’m shooting boudoir.

    It took a minute, but I figured out that when I’m being “ME”, my client’s love me, the photos are better, and I sleep with a clear conscience.

    It’s great to get both your perspectives from totally different continents.

    Top presentation guys and great to hear someone remember a wedding is about the bride and groom and not always about spending hours trying to get the perfect shot.
