Yes it’s true. Everyone. All the top editorial photographers take bad photos.
They just don’t show it to me. Ever.
Thing is… I know everyone takes bad photos, it happens and it’s not a big deal… I just don’t wanted to be reminded of it when I’m looking for a photographer.
The promo, website and portfolio are all places where the possibility exists for you to remind me that shoots can sometimes turn out bland and then I suddenly get the feeling that the shoot I was about to hire you for will turn out bland.
I think I know why you do it. You don’t have enough material yet or you want to show me how you can shoot portraits, food, B&W, color, holga, photoj, etc…
I want to live in a fantasy world where every single shoot is perfect. The best photographers let me.
