The Key To Making 00 Per Day Photographing Hollywood Style Glamour Portraits!
Old fashion Hollywood style glamour photography is an untapped gold mine of profits just waiting for you to capitalize on. It is the simplest and easiest portrait technique to learn but is often under utilized because most photographers tend to complicate things with all their fancy equipment and lights.
In Glamour photography there are four main lighting techniques. They are: 90 degree Split, 45 degree Rembrandt, 15 degree Paramount (taken from Paramount Studios) and the classic Zero Degree Hollywood lighting of just one main light being set directly in front of and up high over your subject.
This lighting technique eliminates shadows and tends to smooth out facial wrinkles creating a very glamorous look with just a single light. Add a small background or hair light into the picture and you are ready to rock and roll your way into earning a fortune with your 35mm digital or film camera!
Many amateur photographers who dream of turning their passion of taking pictures into a full-time career will soon discovered that the world is full of thousands of very talented photographers who are far more creative and experienced than they will ever be. I’m not going to steal away anyone’s dream of developing a photographic career because I know just how really easy it can be to earn over a thousand dollars per day shooting portraits in a simple studio set up in ones own living room.
The truth is - any average amateur photographer who learns how to market really does stand a very good chance of earning a full-time income working part time hours. I know because I have trained
many people as photographers for several large studio’s over the last 20 years and learning to take great portraits is really a lot easier than what conventional thinking would lead you to believe.
Most people think that it takes years to learn how to produce high priced Glamour portraits. What they don't know is in reality it only takes two to three weeks of on the job training to know what you are doing.
There are two easy ways you can tap into the highly lucrative glamour photography market. The first way is to simply apply to any of the National Studio’s for a position as a photographer trainee and get paid to learn how to set up and shoot glamour portraits.
There are many advantages of starting out this way. Instead of investing years and thousands of dollars studying photography at a University or Art school you will be paid to learn how to take portraits.
One disadvantage however in that most portrait studios with trainee program have no lack of applicants applying for the positions and new trainees must sign a non-compete contract that prohibits them from working in the industry for several years after leaving their employment.
National studios have no intention of training their future competition. They are fully aware that with the right training almost anyone can learn how to turn out sellable Glamour portraits overnight.
However, provided you sign a no compete contract they will hire and train you to take, show and sell portraits. But what they won't teach you is the real key to your freedom. They won't teach you how to find customers and market yourself. They will keep you so busy focusing on working in the business that you will never have time to step back and take in the whole picture.
The other easy way to tap into this profitable fun niche photo market is to invest in learning from experts through attending live training workshops or taking home study courses. But your key to developing a big time money making photography career lies in first learning how to flood your studio with paying clients and then to continually hone and improve your skills everyday.
So get out your camera on start focusing on the fun and profitable glamour photography market today because the more pictures you shoot the better you will become and the more you will make!
