Over the years I have honed my craft in various ways. Some folks may say, “How can a person do two things exceptionally well?
Don’t they have to specialize.”
Well, I DO specialize… with a camera, by knowing and understanding light and shadow and the workings of my cameras and lenses. I work to know trends in both Headshot Photography and Wedding Photography. If a person is truly understanding of the principals of light and studies the trend in each industry, then why couldn’t someone be great in several sub areas of the main one- photography? Also, having been an actor for over 30 years and worked in so many aspects of the industry, I am more than qualified to do both. I liken it to someone telling an actor that they can only play comedy or drama. While it’s true that some actors are not good at one or the other, but many are excellent at both. Imagine if they had told Meryl to only do drams after Kramer vs. Kramer or Sophie’s Choice. Think of all the great comedic perfomances we would have missed out on just because some person may have told her to “specialize” in one thing. Well, guess what? She did specialize in one thing- Acting, and all its facets. I specialize in Photography and what I can capture with my camera.
