Getting Noticed in Fashion Photography
Fashion photographers have a hard time getting noticed these days. There’s just too damn many out there, even for seasoned veterans it’s a cut throat era.
I was asked a question this morning by a young photographer, and since I have not had the time to do any writing (more about why in my later writings *hehe*).
The young photographer a world away asked…
Hey just a question??
How on earth do you ever get noticed 🙁
do tell about your sucess 🙂
So I thought, well this is an easy enough answer if I give the short version, at least it was for me on my chosen path.
“In one word it would be tenacity. That said, do things extra-ordinarily and then get in people faces with it. Be charming, but never take no for an answer, everyone want’s to be noticed… But it’s as simple as telling an art director or editor, “I want to work for your magazine” if they so no reply with “then please tell me how to work for your magazine.” And so on, you keep showing that person your passion and desire and they will eventually say yes…
A footnote: Just remember you must have the goods (portfolio) to back it up!
