Years ago, long before I became a photographer, I had my first real experience with professional photography, as a customer.  I wanted pictures taken because I was graduating college.  I was nervous, and while the photographer was polite, she wasn't friendly, and did nothing to put me at ease.  She actually seemed annoyed when I accidentally blinked, which made me even more uncomfortable.  When it came time to select some for print, I really wasn't happy with any of them.  Because she had taken so few pictures, and they all looked pretty much the same, I was left with the task of picking the one or two that were the least off putting.  A task which I ultimately left to my mom.  Mom found a couple that she wanted, and they weren't horrible, but they lacked something.  Something I couldn't put my finger on at the time.  Years went by and a close friend was showing me some pictures he'd taken for a photography class and telling me how much fun it was.  I wasn't terribly busy at the time, so I took a class.  And another.  And then several more.  At the end of two years I had learned composition, posing, lighting, portraiture, still-life, glamour, fashion, product, commercial, and perhaps the most important lesson of all -- what my graduation pictures were lacking.  Passion!  It is often said that a good picture should tell a story.  What story did mine tell?  Was I thrilled to be graduating after years of effort?  No.  Was I melancholy that one chapter of my life was closing?  No.  I just looked like a guy in a cap and gown.

If a photographer isn't passionate about taking pictures, most often the model/customer won't be passionate about posing for them.  Now, I don't mean sappy bouncing off the walls craziness, but a good photographer should be able to bring out the best in their clients, and showcase your passion.  A good picture should tell a story -- your story... whatever you want that story to be.

Over the years I have learned that one way some photographers supplement their income is to sell stock photos of their clients.  The thought of someone using the disappointing pictures of me in my cap and gown to advertise a product or promote a service I've never heard of is a bit unnerving to me.  So I figure some of you may have the same viewpoint.  I have never sold any stock photos of any of my clients.  If in the future I consider it, I will always ask for your permission first.
I often want to use the pictures in my portfolio, but even then, if that's something you're not comfortable with I don't have to.
