    Wow. Let me tell you, I never thought this would happen. Guest blogging for Scott Kelby didn't even come into my dreams it was so crazy. It is an incredible honor to be able to talk about my photography to so many people, and to follow the long list of fantastic photographers that make up the Scott Kelby guest blog "Hall of Fame." I started taking pictures about 4 years ago, around my 12th birthday. My family was just about to go on vacation to Arizona, and right beforehand I got an Olympus C-765 UZ. It was my second digital camera (the first was a Fujifilm, but it broke pretty quickly). I don't really know what prompted my initial interest in photography. I like to think it was the thrill of capturing a moment in time and being able to revisit again and again.…

    Let me start my blog with the name of GOD. First and most, I want to thank Scott who gave me this chance to show up here today. Hi, I am Ali Rajabi, 29 From Tehran, Iran. Photographer and Photoshop Instructor. Before I go to the main story of my blog, I'd like to mention that Photoshop World Conference and Expo 2010 was not just simply a memorable experience for me but basically that was the first step to realize my dream. Something I'd been waiting for for a long time. I ultimately happened to meet those who I used to see just on the internet. In the next step, it was a new start point to fly high in the Photoshop and Photography world. I'm always Thirsty about learning and trying hard, I hope one day I will instruct in this huge event.…

    “Every child is an artist. The problem is…how to remain an artist once he grows up.” --Pablo Picasso I am frequently asked what were the events that lead to me becoming a photographer. As is always the case, it began at the beginning. It started with my very first childhood portrait session. You see, I have a confession to make. I was the Gerber baby. Those five words are perhaps the hardest words in the world for me to write, let alone tell someone. Being the Gerber baby is an event that has flavored everything that’s ever happened to me in the past fifty years. A day does not go by that I’m not affected by it. For example, take creamed spinach. Whenever I go out to dinner and on the plate is a mound of cream and green… spinach, I have wholesomeness flashbacks.…

    First of all, thanks to Scott and Brad for giving me this opportunity. It’s always an honor to be a guest blogger here. And last time I blogged here, some amazing things happened. More on that later.

    I wanted to chat this time about a growing concern I’ve had lately. I’ve been noticing from a few people that follow my work over the last couple years that seem misunderstood in their perception of who I am as a photographer or more importantly, how hard I’ve worked to succeed in the first place and how hard I’m still working. They seem to think that I’ve arrived at some magical destination in photography land where I just sit back and watch the jobs roll in. But more alarmingly, they seem to think the same thing is going to happen for them too. I see it all the time and it’s frustrating. It’s frustrating because they have the talent but they don’t have the drive or motivation. They seem to think that their amazing talent is going to do all the work for them. And sadly, that’s just not the case. Maybe it used to be that way but it’s not that way anymore.

    I recently heard an assistant (24 years old) mocking a 30-something year old wedding photographer. He said,

    First off, it is an honor to be featured on such a great photography blog. As long-time readers, we've often enjoyed reading the "Weekly Guest Blogger" feature so it's a bit surreal to be taking part. About a year ago, we all came together (from various freelance backgrounds) with a strong desire to share our strengths in close community with one another. The idea behind us being a "collective" is that we believe that together we can create work at a higher caliber than we could as individuals.  We all fill different roles at different times, which is something that helps us grow individually and as a functioning unit. It is a spectacular feeling to share in both the struggles and triumphs with people who you not only consider artistic peers, but friends as well. Here's a video that walks through a recent shoot…

    (I’m going to go ahead and apologize up front… There aren’t many, well, any, images in this post to help break up the text [I know, I should’ve had my camera with me the whole time!], but I’ve done my best to break the text up into smaller chunks to make it easier to get through. Hope it’s worth the read!)

    How did I get to where I am today?

    That’s a question that I get asked somewhat often when people meet me, so I figured I would share it here. That way, if we do meet some day, you’ll already know and we can talk about something besides me :)

    I was born at a young age in the hills of East Tennessee…

    Actually, let’s fast forward to the part where I pick up a camera, cool? Thought so.
