When a stranger finds out I am a full-time freelance photographer the next question is, “So, what, do you do weddings?” In my case, I photograph weddings but I do not advertise as a wedding photographer. I love taking photographs of people, learning about them and what they do. Give me a person and I will provide a product like no other but make me take photos of birds and I will be board out of my mind. I try to compare what I do with other career fields. Not all doctors are surgeons, not all painters paint with oil or water colors.
Finding your niche in photography is the key to success! If you like taking photos of food then learn all you can about culinary photography, if you want to shoot children and families then learn all you can about posing and lighting. This is just some quick advice to help you be the best photographer you can be.
