There's no telling who's going to show up on Throwback Thursday.
What I love most, is seeing the trends in photography. Just about everybody's headshot is the same. They're all so traditional in comparison to today's trends.
Over the last ten years, senior photography has been one of the fastest growing segments in portraiture with each session looking more like a celebrity glamour shoot than what we used to think of as the basic yearbook head shot. Even better is the process of capturing more than just the image for the yearbook, but the personality of the subject.
It's a huge market. Doing a little Google research, the best estimate for 2014 was over 17 million high school students in the US and a fifth of them seniors. That's about 3.5 million potential clients out there for those of you interested in senior photography.
As usual, a big thanks to those of you who are sending me images. I've got a few more to share, so if you want to be involved in Throwback Thursday, the only requirement is a sense of humor and sending me an image. It's also got to be at least ten years old! Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll do my best to work them into the pipeline in the months ahead.
Best of all, remember what makes Throwback Thursday special...it's all about the power of an image and our ability to time travel back to another memory making moment in our past. What a kick we all share in being part of the photographic industry!
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite.
