I got called out today. One of my followers told me that they thought the random puppy shots were acting as a filler for the times when there was nothing else to post up here.
Sometimes that is the case. No lies here, but more often than not it’s because I want to break up the theme and give you all something else to look at. I’m a huge believer in photographers specializing in a field, or even so far as a sub-genre in a specific field. Sometimes it’s necessary. Obviously I specialize in people with a specific emphasis on fitness and modeling. Yet there’s an opposing belief in there too where I think that a good photographer should be able to photograph anything well. I like to practice what I preach.
There are definitely some days where I have a bunch of images that I want to post here but can’t yet (due to contracts, publishing agreements, or simply proper timing) so I’ll go out and hike around with the camera for a bit until I find something worthy of putting up here.
I also like to remind my other clients that I’m not moving away from the work that they have hired me for in the past simply because my focus is shifting to a different market.
Maybe the point is simply that I absolutely love what I do, and in the end I’m happy as long as I’m able to be behind the camera…no matter what is in front of it that day.
See you tomorrow,
