How to become a ‘New Photographer’ ? Open your eyes, Specialise and love the medium
If not, then how do get yourself noticed?
Be like Adam Warmington and specialise.
Who is he?
Originally from Bristol, UK, San Francisco based photographer, Adam Warmington has always been fascinated by images. He has spent 10 years in the film industry (even helping to make Aardman films) yet his true passion lies in stills, where he finds a greater challenge – to tell a story in one fraction of a second.
As a young traveler and observer he documents his own and others’ lives:
As a warm hearted people watcher he has also got his photographic eye open to breathtaking landscapes
So what about specializing?
Although he was always active in surfing circles it was the move to Ocean Beach,California, that acted as the catalyst for Adam’s career in surf-photography.
The combination of a close proximity to consistent waves and a gradual but warm welcome from the very tight-knit local community has allowed Adam to capture some unique and beautiful moments over the past few years. That, combined with frequent travel has let to his work being published in Surfer, The Surfers Path, Transworld, Water, Line Up, and Surfline amongst others.
So , a good eye, a passion or interest, and some determination to get up early, to grab the right light, to brave the cold wet days can all lead to specialising and getting noticed.
