Photographer: Bethany McNaught Location: Worcester, MA I’ve been struggling to find my niche in photography for the past year. I started with nature and moved on to people after seeing all the beautiful editorial, beauty, fashion, wedding (etc, etc) photos by my fellow BFP. I did try shooting and editing people for the past year. However, I think I want to move toward food/ product photography. I have certain days I can shoot when my boyfriend’s mother watches our 2 yr old, and unfortunately, it was too rainy to go outside the day I did this shoot. I made the best of it, and did an indoorRead More →

Where are you located/based out of?: Charlotte, North Carolina Where did your inspiration for photography begin?: I’ve always loved photography but never really thought of it as a career.

That’s my goal every session and to of course have fun.Read More →

Photographer Name: Symone Seven Location: Atlanta, Georgia   This year’s black history month I celebrated for the first time as a young black photograpHer; So I did it the best way I knew how: through selfies. My intention with my art during that month was impact. I set out to create images that forces people to stop, acknowledge the present moment, and make a dent on their memory to shape their perspective positively. Like when I did my Nefertiti inspired self portrait, I wanted people to see Nefertiti as black excellence the way she deserves to be rather then the disrespected figure she was on thatRead More →

Photographer: Bethany Erby Located in: Italy, soon to be Mc Kinney, TX My session was just quick headshot for a LinkedIn account. I have been studying lighting and posing a lot lately and this was a great time to put that practice into play. I had my main light camera left and a reflector camera right. Using m a 24-70 mm lens I used the lens distortion to my advantage to add to my images. The backdrop was hand painted by me. I enjoyed letting my creativity flow with this shoot as I usually only work with women and babies. Although this was out of my comfortRead More →

Where are you located/based out of? : Las Cruces, New Mexico Where did your inspiration for photography begin?: I’ve just always been the person with a camera. I think I asked my parents for my first camera in elementary school. I just loved that I could freeze memories in time. I was a military kid, so it was important to me to always take photos of my friends, because I knew eventually that would be all I had to remember them by (due to relocating). When digital photography became a thing, I really got into it. Taking photos with no restrictions on film and processing wasRead More →

Where are you located/based out of? : Atlanta, GA  Where did your inspiration for photography begin?: My inspiration for photography started 7 years ago when I lost my mother and as I was making her funeral arrangements realized I didn’t have very many images of her at all and none were professional quality images. It made me sad that I would have to use a cellphone photo of my mother at her funeral. At that moment I wanted to help make sure that I used my talents to help other people get amazing photos of their family and friends.   How would you describe yourRead More →

Photographer: Donna Frazier Located in: Rosenberg, Texas This was my very first boudoir session, part of a marathon. I was so nervous, but over prepared. I brought every piece of equipment and props to the hotel where we shot the session. My model is a very talented HMUA, with a big personality. I was surprised how shy she was initially and uncomfortable with her body. I thought she was beautiful. Then she changed into her outfits and makeup…WOW! I let her know how hot she looked and it was on like Donkey Kong! She absolutely ROCKED her session! She is my ideal client. She showed up, showedRead More →
