Our feature photographer for this month is Chandra Goodman of Chandra Delite Photography. What a remarkable person she is. Life hardships are inevitable and it’s easy to get discouraged from them. Chandra has used her faith to become a stronger and better person. This belief and positive attitude has carried over to her work and it shows. Her photos are full of love and beauty.
I love wedding photography. These photos often seem magical to me. Maybe it’s because there’s a heightened aura of love in the air. Brealyn Watson is a talented photographer who’s able to capture these special moments. She easily connects to people and is able to tell their stories through her photos.
Ambition and passion. You’ll find these two traits in Lili Sweet. She’s a great newborn and maternity photographer and an amazing person who’s full of love. Read her story and be inspired by the message she gives.
Daniel Laan is an amazing landscape photographer. Just take a look at some of the magnificent photos in his piece. You’ll feel like you’ve been swept away to a different and surreal world with each image you see. Absolutely stunning. Check out more of his work on his website. You’ll find a great selection of fine art prints that you can order for yourself.
Being a professional photographer isn’t just about taking good photos. There’s also the business side of things. Self-promotion and marketing are equally, if not, more important than the art itself. You can’t have a business without customers. Chris Winton-Stahle shares some ways you can increase your visibility with prospective clients.
Point-and-shoot cameras aren’t all that bad. Sian Elizabeth helps remind us of this. On a recent trip to Santorini she was able to make good use of hers. It gave Sian freedom and allowed her to more fully experience the vacation she was on.

Having your own photography business is a dream for many. There will be prosperous times, but also lots of hardships. The key is to relentlessly pursue the dream and to keep the passion aflame. Be inspired by Kate Densmore and learn from her experiences with the ups and downs of the business.
Photography is a subjective art. Not everyone is going to like what you do. Will you be able to move past a scathing critic’s opinions and continue with the work that you love? Katrina Tait shows us that a never give up attitude and a great support system are what has allowed her to find success and joy in photography.
I’m sure all of us have at some point in time thought about traveling to an exotic location. What a dream that would be for a photographer. Sian Robertson recounts a trip to the Falkland Islands and how she fell in love with the wildlife and landscapes there.
It’s easy to betray our loves when things are tough. Our passion for photography is no exception. Chris Winton-Stahle provides us some insight on how to nurture our unique artistic vision and how to balance the fear of failure with the need to be to be ourselves when pursing professional growth.
