Questions from an aspiring phtoographer - Want to get a woman's view
Apologises for barging in on the women's fitness board, but I just wanted to get a female view/opinion on a question I have. As with most people these days, I'm into photography and I have been for quite a while (Since 2008/9). Over the last year or so; while getting myself into fitness and trying to get myself into shape, I've been fasinated by the physical form and I want to combine the two interests.
Therefore, I want to ask for those that do model/compete - Basically what do you look for in a photographer when it comes to taking yourpicture. I realise that anyone can take a picture but I want to be the one that does it well, that when you look at my pictures; you know that it is Bishop's style and I have a goal to eventually be involved in the fitness industry in this capacity. What would make you approach a photographerWhat would turn you away from a photographerWhat would you expect a photographer to behave/be like?
I plan to be the following: Respectful
- I'm not just going to be a 'Guy with a camera' - I want it so that I always have good references Collaborative
- Your body is your 'Brand' - therefore I'm not going to release pictures that put you in a bad light. Professional
- I'm approaching this with a business focus and not just as a hobby, granted I'm still on the ground floor but I want to ensure that I'm doing it correctly - Doing my research so to speak.
I also have some sample of my work that I can show.
Also note that I also plan to do male fitness photography - Not just limiting myself to females.
Any other gems or considerations would be helpful - I hope a good debate can come from this
Thank you for your time.
