The life of a photographer who likes to shoot just about anything.

Are You Listening?

Half the problems in life are not listening. Whether we’re listening to our wives, husbands, moms and dads, they tell us something but our thoughts are elsewhere. This  also applies to our jobs. Our clients/employers provide info on what they want. Our job is to listen and, hopefully, enhance what they’re asking for. On a recent assignment last year I had to capture a portrait of an employee in a toy store without any brand identification. In other words, I couldn’t photograph the person in front of any Barbie dolls or some other famous brand. While it was difficult to find the right angle in the toy store for the portrait, I listened to the client and got the image they needed. Yup, listening helped. It’s a simple task, but one often ignored.
