I’ve been fortunate enough to have been regularly asked to photograph models who are very experienced in front of the camera. This allows me to try lots of different lighting approaches and know that, whatever I do, the subject will always deliver.
However, that doesn’t mean I’ll only work with the pros. I find it just as rewarding to bring out the best in any subject, even the most inexperienced. The key is to make it fun and enjoyable. Then everyone relaxes and the best photos appear.
