How to Get your Work Out There and Get Noticed

We talked a little bit about contests on my breaks Today. I was judging a contest. So I was when I went back to the Green Room a couple of times I did. I woke up at six Oclock this morning before my alarm at seven. A little wobbly, but I was judging a contest. And because the contest is based out of Europe, so, like you should enter these contests, it was so terrific. It was broken down into these really cool categories. And I've judge this contest before and I've judged other contests for them, and it just blows me away every time I do it, because it's just like so much talent and so many people. And it was like a food bloggers category and a street photography category and a Snapchat category. And honestly, the pictures from the Snapchat category were amazing, and it wasn't like studio photography. It wasn't this kind of thing. It was this kind of lifestyle e travel photography that really caught my eye. And some of it was so good because it was so such good rep Atash and catching pe...

ople in moments with food, right? And I love that about about food photography is that it's such a human experience, and being able to judge that content again opens my mind. So I would say, Get involved in content. And if you win one, hey, that opens doors for you because then all of a sudden you get listed as a winner and a PD and taste or on Pink Lady or one of these other big contests. You can win some money. You can travel, you could get an opportunity to shoot, so you never know you. It's a it's a lottery ticket and it's fun. So you should definitely enter yourself in some contests. But if I want to talk a little bit more about portfolio review because it's not just about finding, AH, service or going to an event, because that's that's one method of it. No, the method of it is find somebody that you know and trust to look at your work. Somebody you know that knows the business a little bit or understands food photography a little bit. But I do it all the time. People send me stuff and ask for my critique, and I am brutally honest. I will not pull punches with you if you ask for a critique, because I think it's irresponsible. Um, and hopefully whoever you share your portfolio with will be equally brutal. Because if you social media has taught us that everyone will puff up our heads because they like us or ignore us because they don't and has nothing to do with the work, you like the pictures of the people that you like, and very rarely do you click on pictures off people you don't know or like, and it becomes personal. So you have tow. Ignore that to a certain degree.
