Create an Income with Photography 

Walid’s energy & passion set me free and I let go of any fears I was holding on to.  He’s taken some of my favorite photographs because I felt like I was shooting with a friend and  he could bring out the best in me.

WHY the "How to Photograph" Project?

I started my "How to Photograph" project because after about 8 years of photography it was time to teach others about the business of photography, photo shoots, lighting, and client management. I began my career with zero knowledge of using a camera or booking a client. I taught myself one new thing each day and 7 days a week I was on Youtube or at a local bookstore learning studio lighting, retouching, etc... I made countless business mistakes, really embarrassing ones but each was a lesson! In there were also great decisions and I photographed or directed clients like Usher, Kanye, Mariah Carey, Ricky Martin, HP, VW, Target, Courtney Love, etc... I plan to teach you all of that, my mistakes (lessons) and my accomplishments. 

That is why I started this photography project, to share my experiences with others and contribute to the world of photography.

My hopes are that you also find a path to success and want to continue learning about photography.
