KPIX7695 a aLoads of upcoming photographers mail me and my fans on my FB Page keep on asking me this specific question. How to be the best fashion photographer in India? Here are few tips and tricks to be a photographer.

FOLLOW YOUR PASSION TO BECOME THE BEST FASHION PHOTOGRAPHER

Before taking fashion photography as a career I was in an aviation industry as cabin manager for 8 long years. My passions for photography made me quit my job and follow what I always wanted to do. Whether you are thinking about starting a small business or what career path to choose, it’s important that we follow our passions. Loads of people around me discouraged me not to quit my job. Told me its not easy. But, what I personally feel and tell everyone is that you should always try what you feel from inside. Its better not to regret later without trying.

YOU HAVE TO EARN YOUR PLACE, CAN’T ASK FOR BIG BREAK

In this competitive world, no one is going to give you a break because you are passionate or are very confident about your self. Work hard and shoot regularly. Try and make a good portfolio for yourself and keep your work up to date. Work hard; if your work is good you don’t need to sell yourself.

CREATE YOUR OWN TREND

Don’t follow the trends, you create them. Every industry is affected by trends. But you need to be aware of the current trends in Fashion Photography and try and incorporate them in your shoots. You may be a brilliant photographer but if you are not updated with the current fashion and style, then you might get lost on the path you have chosen. Make your work stand out and show every one around you that you are one step ahead with your won style.

STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO THE COMPETITION

Look in the mirror, that’s your only competition. You really don’t know where the other people stand on the scale . If you think they are better, that’s because they have put in hrs. of practice and commitment in their work. Instead of wasting time on going through other photographers work, its advisable try and practice. Look back at your work see the changes the difference. With more and more practice you should surely see a change in your shooting style and improvement in work. If you don’t , you are doing It wrong.
