Hi all. Last year after the loss of my son I was compelled to learn the art of photography and try to make a career out of it. I get alot of paid work like family portraits, events and babies. I really want to step it up though and get interest from magazines and the art industry. From my port, am I heading in the right direction and how long did it take for you? If your there that is. Would love some feedback and direction if you could be bothered.

You want to do fashion or more commercial stuff?
I think you need to work on lighting, composition, better models(poses, facial expressions)
Your photos look amateur.

Thankyou.These were the some of the first photoshoots I did and I totally agree. deep down I knew at the time the lighting was wrong. Being caught in the moment i was uncorned though and just happy to have the camera in my hand. What do you think of my more recent work?.

Thankyou for your reply. I would like to do more commercial orientated pieces. Lighting I agree with, better models is somewhat hard to find in a little town like this. Diamonds in the trailer park a few and far between, composition is always on mind and I try to include at least one every shot, poses and expressions is a huge problem for me that I need to work on. I find people with experience have more too offer in a shoot rather than someone who has no idea.

I also agree that longer time is needed to really perfect an art. Thankyou for your reply.
