I love this! Your work is great! I have many questions but I have to admit I'm embarrassed to ask. I'm thinking about taking your Fashion and Beauty course, but I've heard it's nearly impossible to become a fashion photographer. Do you think this to be true for most people? #295049

Thank you. Never be embarrassed - not with me anyway. The more you learn. the more you realise that there's more to learn. Regarding becoming a fashion photographer: Well, yes, it's not easy but things that come easy are not worth having.
If you dedicate yourself to your photography, you will always be on the right track to becoming a fashion photographer. The ones that fail did not want it enough, or did not try hard enough, or were not good enough. Those that succeed are not always the ones that are best. #1721682

WOW! This is incredible! I just love the background too. I have noticed several shots in the high end fashion these days with the platinum background. This is really nice. I like the lines of the floor, really cool! (How very very fun...want to photograph me!! LOL -- I'm sure you could make anyone beautiful!!! ;) ) #1839693

I just finished Bruce's Fasion and Beauty class and I enjoyed it very much. Bruce is a wonderful, patient instructor and provides helpful insight and feedback. I am starting a portrait photography business and Bruce's class has provided me with some very valuable creative ideas for posing and lighting my clients. I don't plan on pursuing a career in fashion photography but I do plan on doing more fashion and beauty work for my personal enjoyment. But, then again, you never now what life is going to throw your way. This is a fun class and I highly reccommed it. #1840154

Well, I don't know how much a plane ticket to the UK is these days but, am thinking it might be more cost effective to just take your class!! And do self portraits! LOL! :) So, here I go to sign up! :)
See you in class! #1840296
