I am a 19 year old photographer whom has been shooting a little bit of everything. Haven't really found a genre. Had an exgirlfriend which got me shooting fashion and some stuff for magazines for a while. Still doing that but it's nothing I find exciting anymore.
Just finished up editing the last couple of images which is going to pay for my 70-200 f2.8 as soon as I can show them to the client.
Lately news photography has captured my passion and I have been out shooting at football games where the hooligans have been battering eachother and the police.
I find it awesome, and would love to earn some more money of it instead of the meager bucks I get from the local newspaper.
Been considering of saving up enough money to make a trip to a country suffering from some sort of an crisis. Wondering if you guys have any tips doing a self funded photo trip? I am most likely gonna try to write and document the case with the best of my knowledge and hopefully I might be able to sell it to some paper afterwards?
Just ideas right now but they sound better each time I think about them. The downside is probably that it's going to be self funded and I might not be able to sell.
Suggestions? Tips? Experiences? Let me hear it!
