As photographers, we are easily drawn towards mesmerising landscapes, minimalistic architecture, beautiful design products and pretty faces and bodies. Over the last couple of years, I have travelled to 25 countries on four continents to capture the most beautiful and exotic places, in order to add them to a well-diversified portfolio. Most professional and aspiring photographers’ portfolios should show to a certain extent their dedication to travel to remote places or to go the extra mile at least. That has worked out very well so far for me.
Now, as I want to grow my business to become a successful commercial photographer, I have to diversify my portfolio by adding a different kind of pictures to my portfolio: Commercial pictures - pretty pictures of ordinary things. It is fairly “easy” for a photographer to make beautiful places and things look even more beautiful. The real challenge is, to make those things look nice that look fairly ordinary and that your clients want you to photograph. Of course, I’m striving for high-paying clients with a big reputation, bu you have to start small and work your way up.
Long story short, I’ve started to capture very ordinary architecture in Nuremberg in a compelling way.
Here are the the pictures of the Merian Forum, in North Eastern Nuremberg.
