I've been working on something exciting for a few weeks now and keeping rather quiet about it. I've been intimidated by the prospect of sharing my plans & developments. It's nerve-wracking to reveal things because you never know how people will react. Anyway, rather than stressin' about a "grande reveal" I figured it would be much more fun to share my ideas as I go & to invite you along for the ride. So please, join me as my latest adventure unravels and blossoms! It's a work in progress & here we go...
I'm going to be a glamour photographer. That's right my friends. GLAMOUR!! It's pretty much a dirty word these days. One of the following definitions is probably running through your head :
glamour photography (n) : slutty pictures on page 3 of the cheap newspapers
glamour photography (n) : super outdated cheesy portraits from the 1980's with pink boas & baby-blue eyeshadow
Well my friends....it's neither! Here's my definition...
glamour photography (a la Chamonix) : fashion-inspired portraits of everyday real women who want to celebrate, discover or rediscover how beautiful they are. yes they can be sexy too ;) and what woman doesn't want to feel confident, beautiful and sexy?! sensual is probably a more appropriate word than sexy really because we're talking about a much more sophisticated type of sexy. it's a type of sexy that doesn't have anything to do with what you're wearing (or not wearing).
So what about weddings?
I have a few more on my calendar that I'm soooo excited to shoot. I'll still be available to photograph weddings forever because it's a fab business and I love it but from now on I'll be putting my energy into nurturing & promoting my glamour photography.
