    In many of my workshops, photography career articles, and classes, I’ll often share with my students the one amazing tool that will revolutionize their work, help attract new clients, and keep their spirits positive all at once. It’s personal work. Sure, maybe you’ve heard this before, but maybe you haven’t heard the true significance of why doing ongoing personal photoshoots are so important for you. For me, doing this has made my entire career.

    The past year has thankfully been very good business-wise (I’m a commercial photographer and video producer), but as we all know, we don’t always get to shoot the projects we find most exciting or fulfilling. I’ve always relied on my personal projects to keep me excited and my work looking fresh. Every time I have shot something for myself/portfolio it has always yielded something positive. Whether directly leading to new jobs, or maybe personal fulfillment with charity-related projects, or maybe something that allows me to fulfill a childhood dream, personal work has never steered me wrong.

    I’ve been talking about my shoots as a contributing writer to Fstoppers recently. In this guest post I wanted to share some of what I’ve been working on the past year here on Scott’s blog, and if you’re interested in finding out more about any one of these shoots, I’ve provided links to in-depth articles for each one so I don’t take up too much of your time here.

    Below are a few examples from the past year or so of things I have worked on in my free time or projects that happened because of personal work that I hope you will enjoy!

    Photo by Scott Kelby Hello everyone, my name is Rob Foldy and I am a sports photographer. I am extremely humbled that Brad and Scott would ask me write this post for you all and I am excited to share with you some of the things I have learned thus far in my career and how I have been able to put them into practice. I like how Scott tends to break things down in his writings into "bite size pieces," so I'm going to attempt to do the same. Most of the things I'm about to share apply to sports photography, but I think most of these tips and tricks can be used in almost all types of photography. I tend to be long winded and go on lots of tangents, so I'm attempting to really reign myself in and only focus on…

    It’s funny with photography, it's pressing a button. However until you get to actually 'do it' it can be so effortless or so incredibly complicated. There’s definitely a good range of possible roadblocks between you and the photos you want to achieve. In the end it comes down to who you are as a photographer and what you would like to shoot. One thing is easy for sure, it's to think, "I could have shot that," but you simply haven't until you have. One of Scott Kelby's favorite quotes of Joe McNally has to be, "If you want more interesting pictures, you gotta stand in front of more interesting stuff." I’d like to use this guest post to show you my process of shooting new work for my portfolio, maybe it will help some people to go and make the work they want as…

    After recently wrapping up my eBook on urban exploration photography, I’ve taken a step back to examine why I go to abandoned places, risking legal repercussions and personal injury only to walk away with a few shots that I truly love. The obvious reasons are that it’s incredibly fun, it’s adventurous, it’s exhilarating, it’s challenging, and I love historical places. But most importantly, I have the rare opportunity to photograph places that very few photographers can. The skills I’ve gained over the years to find abandoned places, to figure out how to get inside of them (without getting arrested), and to photograph them in extremely unforgiving lighting circumstances are all factors that I shouldn’t take for granted. With that said, it hasn’t always been a cake walk. I’ve had close calls with authority figures, I’ve partially fallen through floors, and I’ve walked away with…

    First off, let me thank Brad Moore for the invitation to be part of Guest Blog Wednesday, as well as Scott Kelby for sharing this popular platform with many great shooters and storytellers across the world. You are both a tremendous service to the industry and the art of photography. A few years ago, I had an all-day conversation with several other photographers. We talked photography from morning until dinner. It was nice, but also personally revealing of some feelings about my work as a photographer. You see, I left that conversation thinking to myself, “I’m not a photographer for photography’s sake.” That was it? That was the sum total of the entire day for me? Don’t get me wrong. I love photography. I loved photography before it was my job, and I feel I have the best one in the world. It is,…

    Hi everyone! The last time I posted here on Scott's blog it was while I was still working on the new Down & Dirty Tricks for Designers, Volume 2  and I am happy to announce the book is now shipping. If you enjoyed the first book then you are in for a real treat. This book is designed to take you to that next level with more involved tutorials that are more project based so you can learn these techniques in context. Not to mention I did the best I could to bring you some of the most eye-catching images to inspire your creativity. I have always thought that just seeing what is possible can open up possibilities and change your thought process to generate a new idea. When Volume 1 of Down & Dirty Tricks for Designers rolled out in 2011 I was…
