When given a chance to decide if you will hire a professional photographer for a special event, you need to look for the best. Yes, anyone can take photos, even your 10-year old nephew. The problem is that you won't get the desired results. Photography is an art, talent and skill. It takes dedication and time to get the correct detail. You might even regret it because you didn't capture the heart of the event. These are the reasons why it's always better to hire professional photographers to do the job.
So I’m having a really hard time finding a forum for my work.

Wedding photography is a big business. People are looking for professionals to capture the moments of their special day. A professional wedding photographer is hired to follow the couple before and after their wedding, and on their wedding day. Here are some tips on how to become a professional wedding photographer.
Where to start with this... well... I am going to start some myth-busting.
I'm an almost professional photographer. I've done commercial work for outdoor brands and specialise in adventure, travel, and climbing photography. I started an online publication called Nether—go check it out if you like the wilderness and cool articles.
It doesn't get any better than this.
Concert photography is quite the experience. From the atmosphere of shows to meeting a community of talented individuals that drive a creative fire, there is an attraction to being able to capture the energy of a show in a single snapshot. For me it was the love of music and photography that inspired me to give this art form a shot. I have only dipped my toe in the pool of concert photography and know there much to learn.
In 2008, Digital SLR cameras came down in price and finally within reach. I walked into Best Buy with a photography friend and made my choice. I closed my eyes and Sal handed me one camera, with my eyes closed I felt it up and down, pressed buttons and got a feel. He then replaced the camera with another one and I did the same thing. I then said, "I'll take number 1," which happened to be the Nikon D90. At the time, it was a $1200 camera, and I grabbed a Nikon 50mm 1.8 plus the kit lens that came with the camera. That is how I picked a brand. I began to shoot cars, because I have a love affair with them. Soon after, I would shoot anything that wanted to be photographed and that captured my eye. Like all beginners, everything was there for the taking. Every bug, every person, every place I saw through the eye of my camera as a moment to capture, and nothing was going to stop me. I tried a million things, and to this day my hunger to learn has not only grown, but become something I eat, sleep and breathe. My shutters are my compass to my past, present, and future.
Welcome and thanks for taking the time to check out my page. 😊 I am a photographer based out of St. George, Utah. I have been shooting professionally for about 3 years now and am loving every second of it.
The tricky thing about gig photography is that every night is going to be different. The crowd, the lighting, the venue, all these aspects play a huge part when it comes to gig photography, and you need to be ready to adapt at any moment’s notice in order to get the right shot.
Hi guys. I recently graduated SNHU with a Bachelor's Degree in Art in Digital Photography. I wanted to share with you my journey creating my print portfolio. My online portfolio was pretty easy. You can find it at SMoms Photography.
