The Photo Industry is Screwed and We’re All Doomed!

Posted by Greg Blue on Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

You hear that a lot lately, and without question this industry is not what it was 10 years ago. The thing is – 10 years ago everyone was saying the exact same thing and without question the industry 10 years ago was not what it was like 20 years ago. I’ve witnessed this scenario a few times now – in the early 90’s, when Photoshop was invented, the industry was screwed and we were all doomed. When stock photography became a viable commercial option, the industry was screwed and we were all doomed. When digital photography became viable the industry was seriously screwed and we were all totally doomed! If my memory is correct, I have witnessed the end of the world for photographers at least 4 times in the 30 year span of my career – if we were all doomed, you’d think we would have stopped bitching long ago.

Working with a Producer

Posted by Greg Blue on Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Many new photographers do not consider working with a producer because a) they feel such specialists are only for large budget jobs; or b) they do not actually know what a producer is. Fact is producers can be even more valuable to new photographers than they are to established photographers.

Inner City Gemsboks

Posted by Greg Blue on Monday, December 14th, 2015

This has always been one of my favourite images! The idea came together while shooting at the Museum of Natural History in New York. When I saw these Gemsboks, I thought they didn’t look like prey animals at all. The looked like they could whoop your ass if provoked. So I gave them an appropriately rough neighbourhood. However, I also gave myself some potential legal problems if the image used in the wrong way.

See a photographic trend? Run like hell!

Posted by Greg Blue on Monday, December 7th, 2015

One of the great things about social media and the Internet is that you can spot stylistic trends very quickly. The challenging thing for many photographers is resisting the urge to jump on the bandwagon. You shouldn’t be identifying trends with the goal of following them – you should instead run like hell in the opposite direction!

Storyboarding a Portfolio

Posted by Greg Blue on Monday, November 9th, 2015

Portfolio development is a major topic of course, so I will be doing a series of full free tutorials on the subject, but here is a condensed version until that time. Also, my opinion about portfolio development is just one amongst many different photographers, agents and clients. If you are new to this, you should seek out opinions from as many industry leaders as possible so that you can decide which ones will work best for you.
