Some time ago I posted an article about who inspires me. It is Jeremy Cowart. His style is killing, his vision is awesome. Another photographer can be Cliff Mautner. I won’t write here anything about his Bio or something like that, you can google it out. Of course, you can check his website or visit some of his boot camps. But Jeremy, Cliff and many other great photographers are on one spot – Kelby Training Online!
It may see as some king of advertisement but I’m not payed for this. Kelby Training is cool website where you can learn from other professional photographers. But it isn’t just about learning. Take a look on some shots and try to redo them in your enviroment. Because you see how they did it, what settings they used, where was the light, how intense was the light, what modifier was used, where was photographer, were was model etc. you have more than plenty info.
But Cliff is absolutely crazy photographer! He strarted out as a photo journalist and now he shoots weddings. I took a look on his first class, essensials of photography and was just blown away! I didn’t think it could get any better, but than I saw his video of shooting beautiful brides and it was even better! And with his third training video …. well you can figure it out!
It changed my hierarchy levels in photography.
- Succer (can’t shoot but behaves like if he was shooting like Joe McNally)
- Tourist (classical point-n-shoot guy)
- Amateur (guy with interest in photography at starting point)
- Euthusiastic Amateur (he’s getting better and better)
- Professional Photographer
- Scott Kelby
- Joe McNally
- Chuck Norris (yeah, he’s everywhere 😀 )
- Cliff Mautner
- Jeremy Cowart
