It isn't often that you are able to ask questions to the pros in your specific field, but if you were given the chance, would you? Fortunately, we had been lucky enough to be able to get in contact with many photographers that were willing to help out. If it hadn’t been for these fellow photographers, WilsonImagery as you know it wouldn’t have been the same.
In my case, it had been a simple DM on Instagram asking for some tips to start out with photography. All though we had attempted to talk to many photographers, the ones that did reply, helped out in more ways than imagined. The initial DM had been talking about their work and how we admired it as an aspiring photographer/artist, then asking them questions about tips and tricks for amateur photographers interested in starting out. Luckily, I am still in contact with a few of them, able to ask them questions when we come across problems or issues we find. One photographer that we are still in contact with is Christian Hinkle from Christian Hinkle Photography, he had generously helped us out during our starting phase of WilsonImagery. Able to offer advice about certain situations as well as tips and tricks about gear, what he does in the field, etc.
The other photographers that had been extremely generous enough to offer advice are @luxuriouslijah (Instagram), @c_stone710 (Instagram), and @kuhrmarvin (Instagram). In no specific order, each and every one of them have helped us out in different ways and helped us to thrive in what we want to do as an organization. Whether it had been offering advice about post-processing, to given advice about composition of the photo, they have helped out in many ways that I am unable to put into words.
Without networking and reaching out to those we look up to, we wouldn't be where we are today. Although we arent at the top, or anywhere near it, we are gradually rising. We are doing what we love and we can’t wait to continue to bring out new content to our viewers.
Thank You for taking the time out of your day to read this. Have a wonderful day!
