Critiqued

about a month ago, inspired by national geographic and magnum photographer david alan harvey's comments about my photos last june, i sent david another message, this time asking for a full critique of my work. today, i found his reply in my email. my knees are still shaking...

jeryc...

first of all you are a fine travel photographer...and this seems to be how you make your living and i would imagine you are successful with this...your pictures have a great sense of place....you are able to put people in locations that show both lifestyle and location, which is the mark of a good travel photographer...

i just do not know what you might want to do besides travel photography....to satisfy your clients, you are doing a fine job....but, i would like to see you take this a step further and be a little more "personal"...

i always enjoy your comments on the blog...i hope you are shooting something for our "assignment".....if so, go close...get involved...be yourself...really yourself.....do not think of me as a client...now is the time to really show what you can do...if you do, your "clients" will get better...the very best magazines would appreciate this very "personality" that i so described above...

cheers, david

Salamat, pre. Ibang klase talaga. To be told by someone you admire that you're doing things right. Na-challenge ako to do things better :)
