I Interviewed a ‘Photographer’ Who Had Stolen Photos… From ME

I Interviewed a ‘Photographer’ Who Had Stolen Photos… From ME A few months ago, a girl came in to apply for a social media position at my last job. I was one of three photographers at the company and we had an opening for another photographer position. She mentioned to the HR recruiter that she also does photography. The HR guy comes and grabs me to tell me this and was wondering if I wanted to interview her for the open photographer position as well. So I said, “Sure, let me see her portfolio.” To my surprise, her “portfolio” included my photos. I was in total shock and told the HR guy that she has stolen work in her portfolio....

It’s a nice middle ground between what is “kind of like a portrait lens” and something a little too...

The Creative Process of Photography: A Case Study

The Creative Process of Photography: A Case Study I often hear: “I really like your photos. You must own an amazing and super duper expensive camera!” My reply to these people is: “If you own Tiger Woods’ golf club, would you be able to play at his level?” In Woods’ case, it all comes down to years of practice and a healthy dose of raw talent. It is true that — most of the time — more expensive cameras yield better image quality, but it doesn’t automatically come with image beauty. Just as in golf, the best results are achieved by spending a lot of time behind the camera, looking at other photos as a form of...
