I really want to make it clear that I did not make this video to bash those who photograph social media stars, but rather for the beginners or those currently in photography who think that is the OLNLY way to make a name for themselves online. At the end of the day, it's your photography. Photograph what you like.

All I'm saying is: work with people who you really want to work, not because their follower count is high. If your passion is to work with certain influencers, then that's a totally different story. Just don't feel like you need to work with certain people to 'make it' because there are always other ways. Good luck out there ^_^

this is a big mood. i've compromised my values to lower my rate or give free photos to very selfish and entitled influencers and i regret it.

LISTEN! I AGREE, FULLY! The follower phenomenon has gone out of hand and people feel entitled to things solely based on how many people want to see them in bikinis.

Everything Jessica saying is correct, however, if you're not shooting certain influencers for exposure, you simply have to attain it in other ways you may not enjoy, like paying for sponsored ads, etc. If you are simply trying to reach a certain level based purely on your work, then be prepared to suffer, for however long, because as sad as it is to admit, popularity probably plays a bigger role then we may realize when it comes to getting certain ppl to work with you. This isn't 2014 anymore, when you can just upload a photo of a lamp post or sidewalk and get 500 likes. You're fighting with more ppl than ever for views, as well as instagram's latest and greatest algorithms meant to suppress reach.

Exactly like you said Jessica. I had that mindset from the beginning, I think the more followers they have the more snobby they are and I’m allergic to snobby people. That’s why I don’t go after those people. I like to search for hidden gem.

I work with anyone regardless of how many followers they have because I know it won't effect me. I love the experience of meeting someone new every time, and having every shoot turn out nothing like I expected. I feel like people who keep it real and put in the work and effort will get more recognition than those who take the same boring photos over again.. nowadays so many people care about the amount of followers they have but that number isn't gonna mean anything to anyone but you.
Michelle Reid
agree!

I know this feeling, I'm not a pro fotographer and I don't even own a DSLR but my friend put me to make thousands of picture with him just because I have a compact camera. And he's just saying that im at the beginning and I need to do it for free, and because of him maybe I'll get some more insta followers. I'm like really dude, ok, we are friends but this is like the sixth time when you want me to take pics of you... :/

She's right ya know ..it's YouTube influencers are only famous because of other popular YouTubers.

The Problem with Instagram Influencers why photographing instagram influencers won't 2 days ago   01:49

While this might be an unpopular opinion, I wanted to address the lack of creativity in lifestyle videos. It's important to stay creative and fresh, and travel "edits" are basically all the same.

Regardless if you agree or not, hopefully you can still appreciate the effort I put into making this video :)
