Photography Genre

When I started getting serious about photography I kept reading that one should pick a ‘genre’.  I was like, ‘what the heck is that’?  Why can’t I take any kind of photo I want?

As I read more and photographed more, it made sense.  A wedding photographer needs certain skills and tools to take beautiful wedding portraits, just as a sport photographer, and they are each different.

So, I thought – I want to be a landscape photographer.

So, I was surprised when the first photograph I got published was wildlife.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.  We just got back from a trip to the beach from AZ, and these are the pix I brought back – all wildlife.

Do what you’re good at… and what you enjoy, and you’ll be good at it.

  1. All your pictures are amazing, I have never heard about the monarch butterfly migration, I’m sure it was amazing to see. Felt like I was there, from your description & pictures. Thank you for sharing ❤️❤️
