How To Get Started In Glamour Photography
Glamour photography and escort photography are highly competitive businesses, especially in the big city of London. There are multitudes of up and coming photographers who are dying to know the secrets of breaking into such a difficult sphere, but it’s not always as easy as a one line answer.
Every professional photographer has a different story. I often get asked how to startup in glamour and escort photography business, and I’m always willing to share my experiences, but that doesn’t mean that my career can be used as a template for absolutely everyone! Aspiring glamour photographers and escort photographers need to be adaptable, hardworking, and most of all, totally dedicated.
Just Get Started
The most important thing is to dive right in! Whether it’s interning at a photographer’s studio, working on your portfolio or even attending as many photography exhibitions as you can for inspiration, you need to immerse yourself in the industry. Find ideas and motivation everywhere, and always jump at the chance to hone your skills. Great photographers have talent, of course, but often it takes time and experience to develop that talent fully, and so you should always take every chance to learn from the more experienced professionals. After all, they were in your position once!
Don’t Be Too Fussy
Some aspiring photographers can be too picky about what sort of things they want to photograph, and this can be a serious problem. Like I’ve said before, experience is key and you should never turn your nose up at an opportunity in the early stages of your career. These experiences often open doors and bring new ideas to mind. I started in the lingerie photography business, and this was what led me into glamour photography and escort photography. You have to be open-minded and welcome new challenges.
On the same note, don’t get stuck developing long-term skills and relationships in an area of photography that truly doesn’t interest you. If you really feel like you’ve learned everything from a certain opportunity, don’t be afraid to pursue bigger things. After all, the greatest thing that a photographer can be is brave!
