JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 03.23.19
I was thinking in general terms this week.
Maybe because I shot a general.
But I mean I like being a generalist. I like that my IG profile shows a range of work.
I love when people are portrait photographers. But I really dislike going to their IG and just seeing face after face after face.
Sunday night, I shot a punk band.
Monday morning, I shot a CEO and an Army general.
This month I’ve shot corporate headshots, actor headshots and sports.
Next month, I’ll shoot a corporate event, more sports and who knows what else.
I’m basically the utility infielder of photography.
And I’m OK with that.
There’s something to be said for being a specialist. And for a long time, that’s what I thought I wanted to be, both in my day job and in my passion.
But I like being a generalist.
And I want to be the best generalist I can be.
Generally speaking, of course.

“I didn’t choose photography; it chose me. I didn’t know it at the time. An artist doesn’t think first then do it, he is driven.” ~ Ilse Bing, born today, March 23, in 1899.
