It took a long time to work our way up in the fashion photography world to be laboring a gig in Beverly Hills, plus I wouldn’t have believed it if you told me years ago.
I was a lowly magazine photographer in a forgotten town in the midwest.
Some of our first gigs were garnered through contacts I met while every one of us were in our time in art school. But I had a lot of other photographers our age to compete with when it comes to available gigs in that town in particular. Once you’ve taken ceremony photos for the thoUnited Statesndth time, it starts to get outdated unquestionably abruptly. I was also taking portraits for high school seniors plus that was bringing in a little bit of money as well. However, our true break came when I was able to shoot photos for a band that was coming through our town to play a gig. I went to the show plus took some shots that got the band leader excited. After she featured them on her social media page plus credited me as the photographer, I had so various calls plus e-mails coming in that I couldn’t keep up. After a year or so of growing demand, I took a leap of faith plus moved out to Los Angeles, California with our best friend. Both of us got an lake house in Culver City but I almost instantly started laboring as an assistant on photo shoots in Beverly Hills. I remember a photoshoot at a studio on Sunset Boulevard where I met the woman who would provide me the rest of our gigs in our time in Los Angeles. Recently I had another gig in Beverly Hills in Holmby Park. I stopped at a cannabis dispensary off Alden Dr beforehand but I didn’t use any of our products before heading to our photoshoot. I can’t risk getting too high before heading to work or I could lose our task.
