"What advice would I give new and seasoned photographers? Learn as much as possible, find your style / what you love to do, brand and market yourself properly and have a strong business mindset.
For a lot of photographers the talent comes easy, what’s often difficult is how to make their love for photographing profitable.
Learn more; know more. Educate yourself. Be different. Just like Apple products, things change quickly. There are always new products coming out, new techniques, new fads, and new equipment / software, etc., you have to keep up.
Grow yourself; invest the time and money necessary to make yourself better. If you want more money: work more efficiently, be smarter, be better. Spend all your time learning or behind the camera, anything else you’re losing money."
One of the qualities about being a great photographer is about never compromising on the quality of your images, while at the same time setting a standard for pushing the edge of the envelope on creativity, especially lighting. Great lighting is fast becoming Moshe's signature along with outstanding headshots. You'll find a lot of spectacular work on his site.
