Each month, I’ll be offering a person who is looking for a studio space and give them access my new studio for the equivalent of one week during which I won’t be using it. In exchange, I’d ask for 3-4 days of skill sharing or assisting.
We’re done with 2017 and that marks the end of my 3rd year working as a photographer!
For those who were wondering this morning “Hey, is Alex Tran a nerd?”, well boy do I have the answer for you with some new photography stats. I did this for the first time two years ago, visualizing my wedding photography stats (back when I did weddings).
Hey I visited Toronto for kinda the first time back in September!
In this post, I’ll be talking about my ongoing assignment with the Mont St-Hilaire Gault Nature Reserve—my favourite assignment yet (bold statement, I know)! I need to tell you the back story first.
Well, I just came back from my second road trip to the Île d’Orléans just within two weeks. It’s sort of long to explain why I went there twice, so let's just say that I'm not a good planner. But hey, both trips were fun!
Quick disclaimer before we start—although I’ll be showing some wedding photos, please note that I no longer do wedding photography! I’m instead focusing mostly on editorial and commercial portrait photography, as well as headshot photography. Before my retirement from wedding photography, however, I was able to sneak in Fabio & Samia’s amazing wedding. Here’s the story!
How often is a stack of playboy magazines considered a business expense?
For Janna Yotte, a Montreal-based art director and visual artist, anything printed is fair game, and once she extracts the images from their magazines with her x-acto knife, they become a potential ingredient for her collages.
Most of my editorial portrait shoots involve artists, entrepreneurs, actors. I rarely have photoshoots with athletes, so I was thrilled about this one. I got contacted by Sportbox Entertainment Group (an athlete management company) to do a lifestyle photoshoot with speed skater Samuel Girard
Given that I had already photographed many, but not all of Pam's artworks, we had unfinished business to do before she left for her master's in New York. So every day during our trip, we packed one of her artworks in the car to go photograph it on-location somewhere.
One thing that I CONSTANTLY want to improve as a photographer is my editing skill. Not editing in the post-processing sense of the word, but in the curation sense, choosing which photos to show, which ones go well together, what the most effective order is, etc. In this post I'm sharing 2 exercises that I use to improve my editing skill.
