Here’s my quick stance on personal work. If you’re not doing it, you’re already a step behind. And by personal work I’m referring to something that took some planning to pull off the vision you had.
I’ve never met Tatyana or Brandon before other than on this beautiful Fall day but we hung out as if we’ve known each other forever and once again, I met them both through Instagram. To give you a bit of background on the shoot, I scouted the location, I planned the time of day to shoot, I suggested outfits for them to wear and on top of all this I drove 2hrs to arrive at the place and 2hrs hours to get back home. Was I paid for any of it? Nope. In fact I ended up spending around $230 to make all this happen and the bonus without question meeting to amazing people.
