Weekly Projects to Invigorate Your Photography Portfolio
Many photography students struggle with a mundane portfolio of work that lacks true impact. This book is a remedy for the "average” portfolio, and will enable portrait, wedding, or fashion photographers to create a portfolio of compelling images that is sure to help them differentiate themselves from the competition.
Many existing books use bland imagery simply to prove a technical point, while many fine art books are filled with beautiful imagery, but contain minimal (if any) educational insights and also have no relevancy to most working photographers. This book blends both: inspiration and education that photography students can take to the bank as they create images that attract potential clients.
Creative 52 provides 52 weekly challenges that push photography students to experiment with new concepts, techniques, and post-processing tools, culminating in a unique and eye-catching portfolio. The challenges encourage and invite the student to put the knowledge and inspiration of the book into practice, helping yield tangible results.
The author has taught on this subject dozens of times on major national platforms, and is a sought-after source as someone who pushes creative boundaries while achieving professional success.
