Day 50: 20 Photographers to Follow on Instagram

Welcome to day FIFTY OR, day Half-Way-Through! Thank you so much for being here! Today I wanted to shine a spotlight on photographers who have influenced me, inspired me, and definitely added some beauty to my Instagram feed! I’m a huge believer in following many different genres of photography. I love that I can get inspiration from my Instagram feed from people who shoot completely different subjects in completely different ways. Maybe I think it somehow makes me more well rounded, to study not only wedding photographers. Maybe you feel the same. I know you will find a mountain of beauty and inspiration in each one of these photographers.

#followmeto the magical cherry blossom time in Paris with @natalyosmann. Love this collaboration with the mega talented @hobopeeba. This is a small park next to Notre Dame, which is literally a cloud of pink trees and there are very few people around at sunrise. Good time for photos! Are you a sunrise or a sunset person :)? #cледуйзамной в Париж во время цветения сакуры. Наше совместное творчество с мега талантливой @hobopeeba. Этот маленький парк находится сбоку от собора Нотр-Дам и там очень мало туристов на рассвете – хорошее время для фото – приходите фотографировать!

I try and imagine every individual I see as an innocent child. I see them grow in this world…their stories branching in different directions. I see them age and try to make sense of the experiences that occur around them. I see them hurt and look for hope. They reach out to others because they want to know they are not alone. Their vulnerability sometimes scars them causing them to hide from the light. There’s so much that goes into making us who we are and the way we perceive each other and the world. When I look at another individual, there is no possible way I could even begin to understand what they’ve experienced… but I can try. One of the most important things I’ve learned in this life is that the smallest amount of grace you can share with another human being can make the biggest difference. .

Right before Julia left to see Elijah for the first time that day, she read a sweet note from him on the front porch. Love this moment.

Going back to Mexico is always soul lifting. There is nothing better that being surrounded by family and friends on a sunny day. Even though I haven’t lived there for the past 3 years, it feels like home every time I go back. 💕☀️ Definitely home is where the heart is ❤️ . . . . . . . . . . . . . #wanderlust #traveldeeper #mexico #valladolid #visitmexico #cntraveler #beautifuldestinations #feelfreefeed #passionpassport #livetravelchannel #lovetotravel #womenwhoexplore #lifewelltravelled #passionpassport #darlingescapes #forgeyourownpath #girlsborntotravel #girlwhotravel #livetravelchannel #lovetotravel #dametraveler #sheisnotlost #wearetravelgirls #pink #willtravelforpink

In the fire of confrontation you always have a choice. Be wood, or be water. – The prevalence of mutual attack makes me wonder if anyone realizes that other options exist. It’s like we’ve become blind to the fact that meeting an insult with a “sick burn” means that a fellow human, with emotions as deep as our own, is getting burned. – How in the F did that become the cool thing to do? Shouldn’t the real win be turning darkness into light? – We’re all just floating on a pebble in space trying our best to find happy path through this weird forest of existence, so why is kindness to each other so damn quiet? Why are we taught to turn away from negativity? Is ignoring it really better than healing it? The more vocal kindness becomes, the more aware we might become to the strength of it. – If someone compliments you, respond with kindness. If someone insults you, respond with kindness. If someone insults someone you love, respond with kindness. If a stranger on facebook tells you your work sucks, respond with kindness. If someone flips you off in traffic, respond with kindness. The general rule here is “respond with kindness.” Please. – Negativity is a fire. Be water.

I took this image 3 years ago. It’s still my favorite for so many reasons. . First, the skin tones and the “painting” like effect it has to it. . Second, the connection I have with my subject. I slowed down, it’s wasn’t rapid fire, it was one shot and it was perfection. . THIS is why I shoot film. I’m a better photographer because of it. . My mindset is different. I create art, I’m one with my clients, I capture the real them. It fuels my soul and I’m complete. . It’s the most important change I’ve ever made in my business…and I want to share this with you. . I’ve been hinting about this for months and it’s finally happening. . This will not be your average “follow these steps to become a film photographer. No, this is me teaching you what I do. From knowing what camera to buy, hacks on starting film without spending a fortune, walking you through how to load the darn thing. What the heck is rating? Metering, huh? What’s a light meter? How do see what I shot? Does Walgreens still develop? Do I need a darkroom? . GUYS! Stop! It’s not hard!!! You are making this way too complicated! . So, join me. Tonight at 8pm (Thursday,June 14) or tomorrow (June 15) at 10am (CST) and I’m just casually answering all your burning questions! If you want to shoot for personal reasons or incorporate into your business, I’m here to hold your hand friend. I got ya girl. . And I just had iced coffee for the first time ever and I’m dying to do a happy dance on this airplane RIGHT NOW because I’m so freakin excited to hang with you!!!!! . (Head over to my stories to get that link, I know you just want to click and you can experience my joy of discovering the magic juice that I’ve avoided for 47 years! 😂😂😂 . Who else loves iced coffee???!!! Emoji please!! Styling @jannabrowndesign | HAMU @chialimengartistry

This picture is called Brighter Days. I made it to portray my undying optimism – the way I see the world. While I find dark imagery most beautiful, in my everyday life I look for blue sky days. This image was chosen to represent a new campaign that I am thrilled to share with you. @Sonyalpha presents #SonyAlphaFemale, an initiative to support women in the photography business. Sony is giving away FIVE $25,000 grants + $5,000 worth of equipment to the people selected. 🌙 Link in bio! 🌙 I have been behind the scenes working with Sony executives to help bring this to life and I am honored to be on the panel of mentors for this program. I watched this initiative come from a place of honest to goodness desire to level the playing field (and sometimes from a place of frustration, empowerment, and sincerity that blows me away). 🌙 To me, this feels like an important moment in the photo world. I cried when I found out about these grants. Why? Because it is important to me that I work with a company not just for their product but for their heart. Because I want to see people succeed and inspire others. Because I want to be in a position to help change lives. 🌙 You don’t need to be a top photographer, don’t need to have created your very best work, don’t need to “know the right people” or ingratiate yourself to anyone. This is about selecting people who have the potential to soar, and helping that potential along financially, through mentorship, and education. 🌙 When I was brought on for this project I asked that the fine art market be represented, and they listened. So here I am, proud as pudding to be here and sharing this with you. I might even say it is one of the defining moments of my career to be a part of this. 🌙 (Because I feel I should say this – I was not told I had to share about this, wasn’t pressured into saying anything at all. I’m here telling you about this because I believe in it. That is my reason for sharing anything that I share.)

Home is where you hang your heart 💙 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• The first thing I was told upon arriving to my first Burn back in 2013 was “Welcome Home.” An older man in nothing but a tutu immediately ran up, gave me a huge hug like we were long lost friends, and then told me to roll around in the dust. I won’t lie, the experience was completely jarring. I immediately thought, “What the hell did I just sign up for?!” I always thought I was an open minded person, but was this going to be totally beyond what I could handle? That week was one of the most uncomfortable, awe-inspiring, emotional, carefree, and life-changing experiences in my life. 5 Burns later, I’m proud to say that not much has changed. It still takes me at least 24 hours to shake the real world off, to stop thinking the word “weird” and to, if I’m being completely honest, stop judging. We all judge others based on what’s beautiful, what’s acceptable, what’s “normal,” and what’s cool, when those beliefs might not even be what we really feel. It’s just what we’ve been conditioned to think. If there’s any takeaway from #BurningMan that I try to carry with me, it’s that we’re all weird. There is no normal. Life is weird. Love is weird. The internet is REALLY weird. So why not be silly? Why live in fear of being uncool? Wear the tutu, roll in the dust, cry when things are sad and dance when everyone’s watching. You only have one life. How do you wanna spend it? •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #burningman2018
