Someone asked me the other day how to become a professional photographer. After wanting to give my smart-ass answer of “take a series or photographs and get someone to pay you for them, viola, you are a professional.” I thought better of giving that answer and came up with the real answer, practice.
My first photography teacher/mentor/tormentor John Grey and my professor at university, Greg Lewis, both always said you have to always be taking photos, always have a camera with you. You never know what you will find walking around. Oh, that is also part of the secret, get out into the world and really take a look. You can’t make photos sitting at your computer reading my website post.
Giant baby heads are everywhere if you just look for them.
