Photography can sometimes be a competitive landscape. So how you make yourself stand out from the crowd?
In this episode, Gina and Valerie discuss the key elements you need to consider if you want to have a point a difference, make people remember you (for all the right reasons) and bring something extra to the table. Often, it’s not actually about your actual photography. It’s to do with your attitude and your confidence.
Gina’s recent lifestyle shoot had to incorporate these products:
Discover how Melbourne’s familiar landmarks have changed over time in David Collopy’s display of old and new photographs of the city. Images sourced from the Library’s catalogue, Monash University archives and Collopy’s personal collection have been rephotographed and shown alongside the original scene for comparison.

This photo was taken during the Brisbane Open House weekend, 8/9 October, and I submitted and promptly forgot about it.
Feeling rather down and despondent about my photography while having a cup of coffee I got an email, at that very time, to say that I had won an award for the category I had entered it in. I thought that it would only be a commendation but I had won the Interior category.
It is a nice feeling to be back on track 😊.

I’ve stumbled upon your podcast relatively recently and have been listening intently ever since trying to catch up. So please forgive this late post on #birds, but they are one of my favorite subjects and I was so pleased to capture this shot. I would really love to hear your feedback on it. I’m just a newbie in this field, but its under my skin. Thank you for providing such an awesome podcast. I listen with eagerness!

How to stand out from the crowd
You take great images, they are sharp, technically perfect.
Your website is good
Have all the best gear
Post production is good
You put in the hours
You dress well
But how do you get noticed? How do you stand out from all the other photographers?
There are qualities that many successful photographers have that get them noticed that have very little to do with their technical abilities
