Style is the signature that every artist develops with time, experience, research and practice. It is a mixture of particular recurrent elements that makes your photography unique and recognisable to the public. When your clients tell you “I Love your style” you will definitively know that – good or bad – you have one. Yay!
To me the concept of style is a non-static state of mind that reflects who you are as a person and where you are in your life. Your personality and your craft get refined by practicing your art and experiencing the world. When you change so does your vision of life and therefore your representation of it. Have you ever gone through your pictures of a couple years ago? Wow, what a difference! The change in style can be subtle or more dramatic but it happens to all of us. And it is a good thing because it means that we are moving forward.
But once decided what subject your photography is going to be about, how to get there? How to find out what is your style?
