199 – Have you ever looked at another photographer's locations and thought, “Ugh, I wish I lived there!”
Like Charlotte's ooey-gooey sunset light on the beaches of Brisbane, Australia? Or Alicja Zmysłowska's majestic mountainscapes?
Don't they make you wanna turn around and kick your spot right in the shin?
What if you took a different look at where you live? What if you try to see the beauty in unexpected places? Or maybe even embrace the unbeauty of it all?
I wrangled Emily Abrahams of Inspawration Photography onto the Hair of the Dog podcast this week and we have a great chat about the importance of choosing unique locations and unleashing our individual personalities.
Because that, my friend, is how you find your style, what makes you stand out from the crowd in this ever-growing profession of pet photography.
What to listen for
4:51 Why you gotta go where your heart takes you
9:57 What Emily looks for in a location
13:55 How to pull the elements of a location together for a cohesive image
22:49 If I had to choose just two lenses for the rest of my life …
26:01 Why you must take a different look at where you live
Epic scenery is great to have but is it an absolute necessity for a pet photographer? No.
After all, if it wasn't for the lack of epic-ness (it's a word, I swear) in Pittsburgh, I never would have found my zone of genius, shooting with an urban vibe.
Or Emily might not have learned she loves to play with textures, shapes and colors, transforming the mundane into magical backdrops.
I challenge you to have a listen to this week's podcast, go out and take a different look at your location, and then head to the private Hair of the Dog community to share what you've seen.
