Today's share comes from David of David Schertz Photography. He writes, "Using the Inspire Me Cards: A Modern Posing Guide for Wedding Parties and Inspire Me Cards: Modern Engagement Posing Guide, I ordered two bound 4x6 proof books from WHCC with frosted covers. 4x6 is the perfect size to keep on the office desk or toss in my Thinktank gear bag. I needed a way to be inspired without taking up too much room. Since I'm on the road a lot too and am sometimes forgetful, I uploaded both Inspire Me Cards sets onto my iPhone and iPad (they're always with me!) No matter where I go, I'll be inspired. The 'Inspire Me Cards' are just awesome! I knew before I bought them that I had to get them bound and printed. I didn't just want a digital copy sitting on my iMac or Macbook Pro. Once I thought about it, I thought it would be a great idea to have them on my iPhone and iPad. That way no matter where I'm at I can get a quick look before a shoot. My assistant can just grab my iPhone, iPad, or grab the bound versions from the gear bag. Besides the fact that these rock, my clients have been super happy with some of the poses that come out of our shoots. They credit with me such a creative look. I credit Design Aglow!"
We love what you've done with the posing guides, David, and it's perfect for any photographer on the go! Thanks for the great share, and enjoy your $75 gift certificate on us~
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
Hi! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What was your road like to becoming a photographer?
Hello! I am a portrait photographer based south of Boston, MA. My passion is capturing mothers and their growing families. Maternity and newborn portraits are the foundation of my business, and I also capture baby milestones, children, and families. Fun fact: I returned the diamond earrings my husband bought me for our first Christmas as a married couple to buy a digital camera.
When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.
There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.
