Important Points that Make a Great Photographer

There are many things that people say that make a good photograph.  And this is true in regards to how the image is read and how it performs the job that it was intended to do.  A photo of a classy car, well it will make people desire it and want to buy it. Job done.  What I would like to take a moment and write about is the Important Points that Make a Great Photographer.

If you ask someone what makes a great photographer you will probably get the answer ‘someone who can take a great photograph’. Again, this is true.  But what is more important is the qualities of the photographer him/herself.  At the top of my list, I would say that to make a great photographer you need to be a people person.  Even though a photographer usually will be shooting on their own for the most part, it is vital that they are able to communicate effectively with the client.  Another quality that is important is to be creative. Its not good enough just to know how the latest equipment works, a photographer must be able to use the camera to bring to life the world as they see it. A good photographer will usually have enrolled in a course such as City of Westminster College on a relevant course.

Another point that I would like to mention is coordination.  Yes, its important, in ways that you would never realise. I cannot stress how important it is to be able to work around heavy duty studio lights that are mains operated and not knock them over and electrocute yourself and others in the process.

There are more, but I thought I would just mention these for now. If you would like to see my work click Portfolio.  If you would like to follow me click Twitter.
