Almost any photographer can produce 10 to 20 really good images but that in itself, may no longer be enough to gain them the recognition that will take their craft further. Developing a voice or a style and eventually developing a successful body of work may help provide you with the edge to take your work to the next level.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR OWN WORK OR STYLE?
If you are a painter there are words to describe the style of painting that very clearly communicates the type of work you produce such as Impressionism, Realism, Photorealism, Fauvism, Surrealism. If you work in ceramics, or glass or just about any form of art other than photography the outside world gets a pretty good idea about your art. Yet, when it comes to photography, most folks just call themselves a photographer, which leaves the door wide open for interpretation. When I say that I am a photographer, I am routinely asked if I do weddings and when I say no, I am asked if I do wildlife and when I say sometimes, they are already confused. When I add in that I also photograph people and landscapes and produce commercial work for magazines, and fine art for galleries they are clearly even more confused.
