    Commercial Photography


    Recently, I shot a few pictures for my friends’ boutique store site. I’d never really shot merchandise before but it turned out a lot better than I expected. Specifically, the brands were dl1961 , generation love , and the bohemian styles of tbags los angeles, Woodleigh clothing. The product was real nice and the store had a great vibe to it. I haven’t processed the pictures yet but once I do, I’ll be sure to post them. First, I was shooting as a hobby until I realized that it was my passion, but I didn’t know what kind of photographer I wanted to be so as long as I someone pays me to point my camera at something then I’m game!


    Shooting a product is a lot different than shooting people and there are pros and cons. The work is a lot more consistent as there are always businesses that need great professional photography but I kinda miss the spontaneity of real people. Regardless, as a freelance photographer, it’s hard to get jobs as it is so I won’t complain too much.
