Tara ( our sales and marketing guru) shares her favourite 5 blogs and instagrams. As photographers, we look for inspiration that can be brought into the studio and blogs are a great place to start!
1. Steve McCurry
The photographer of the famous ‘Afghan Girl’ with the mesmerising green eyes puts out collections of images with poetic verse.
His use of exaggerated colour and wide open spaces have inspired many a portrait shoot. But also McCurry provides tranquil content such as his series on ‘Trees are Sentinels’ and ‘Breathing Life’.
2. Felix Kunze
German born, English bred, resident of New York, this photographer is a master of lighting and we love how his group photographs.
3. Anne Leibovitz
No blog here, but an instagram worth a look at!
The portrait photographer of our generation. Beautiful portraits of individuals from their hand positioning, where their gaze is and making use of props. All of these inspire us as photographers as well as being in awe of meeting all these celebrities!
4. Seth Casteel
Another instagram – The best medicine is laughter and this photographers blog is fantastic. I purchased his book on Underwater Dogs while travelling through America of which sits in the studio reception and provides others will a good giggle.
5. Kelly Brown
To say Kelly Brown is a Newborn photographer is slightly underrating how amazing this lady is. All the way from Australia, Kelly is the lead newborn baby photographer in the world!
If you want to learn Newborn; posing, wrapping, lighting and session flow, Kelly Brown is the woman!
6. And one from Peter…
Peter: When I was starting photography this was the blog that most influenced me. Not updated as much as it used to me – but still worth a visit.
