    Jerry, you’re a wealth of information and an amazing photographer who knows how to work the subject in any given situation. This is a great opportunity for all those looking to take their photography to the next level, or even just starting out and wanting to start off right. Just wanted to post this so that others would know how professional and personable you truly are.

    An avid admirer of your work
    & someone who’s enjoyed learning from you,

    Thank you Sabrina, I had great teachers in life… And there is nothing more rewarding to me than giving back to the craft that has given so much to me. And thank you again for coming to see my lecture at Photo Plus Expo this year. I hope you’ll come back!

    Hey Jerry,
    As a young photographer I want to do the most artistic fashion styles & get paid well. What city is most best for this desire??.. New York or Milan, etc. It seems like there’s more artistic exceptance/awareness over in Europe! after all there’s a long history of art there!…


    Jerry Avenaim Reply:

    Well Greg, it used to be (when I started) one had to go to Milan, Paris, or London to build their portfolios of work in the fashion magazines only to come back to the United States to get real assignments. Today however, there are so many fashion magazines here and abroad that you can shoot and submit. As far as cities, New York is the fashion photographers mecca, while Los Angeles is more celebrity driven. In the beginning, I would choose a smaller city (Chicago, Phoenix et al) and work on MPD (Model Portfolio Development). This will help to serve both you and the model before you take the big next step. Best of luck, Jerry
