Yesterday, I was listening to a bit of CreativeLive in the background and I think it was Sue Bryce who had said that she doesn't see competition or believe she's competing. You focus on creating and you focus on the client. The client is the person who will pay you, not your competition, so figure out how to better serve them.

I thought that was a nice view and reminder about things. I realized I do no different whether I've been aware or not aware of other photographers around me where I've lived. No one shoots like me or provides services like me. Keep focused on your clients and get things done!

Ok NY & NJ photographers, I posted this on FB, but I really think many of you will love this workshop. As I repeat below, I'm paying to attend, I get nothing from this!

Hey guys. Not sure if you have heard of a photographer Craig Lamere. He started not that long ago, but has worked his lighting so well that he's really blown away people in boudoir and fashion groups I'm in. He has his own style, and I'm hoping to learn from him when he hits the NJ area in August. Unfortunately, there has to be at least a dozen people interested to keep the scheduled event. The location is at a Victorian Castle/Mansion in Middletown NJ and I really think it'll be worth it. He just changed the price from $999 to $750 and I think you receive a book from another photographer who is helping run the event.

I get nothing for this except that I won't see the event canceled. I am paying the fee and have set my calendar. If you'd love to learn more about lighting and working with models, I think this will be a great hands-on event. Check out his stuff and be sure to register tomorrow. We have a week to get enough interest.
No kickbacks, I just don't want to see NY/NJ not get him here after seeing photos of his last event and how cool it looked:

My wife loves Kristin, so it was cool to see her shocked by a fan on stage. From all the stories, not a plant, just a lucky fan who got her dream. Pretty cool.

I don't use Instagram a ton but it can be fun here and there. My baby definitely enjoys her mornings.

I already miss the fall. This was a photo from a session in the park (Brookdale Park) nearby, one I'm really just starting to take advantage of now that we moved here in June. This photo will be the Giclee canvas centerpiece on their family wall. I can't wait until it arrives.

Even when I met them afterward for their ordering appointment, her laugh was still as awesome as I showed her family this video. I hope I'm this happy and full of joy later in life like Emma is.

I know it's not exciting to see posts on winning things, but after watching a friend of mine actually win one of these contests, it's hard to NOT try even with slim chances. Which camera would you pick?

Yeah yeah, I keep trying to win free cameras. My friend in Boston did last year on one of these and I of course think it's realistic that I will win one too.

That said, please enter and help me ;)

Finally launched my new site. I've been working hard behind the scenes with someone for the new logo, but the site was on me. Today I put it out there and officially am announcing that AST Photos has now become Anthony S. Torres Photography. It's not just a name change though.

I've been working with testing printers all over to narrow down a revamped product line, and have had a great time doing it, as time-consuming as it has been through the whole winter. I won't give my final ones out, but most of them are great, I just have my reasons.

Anyway, the new site is here: http://anthonystorres.com

More work to do in updating it, but you have to get out there.

I can't believe how much time has flown by this winter. I realize now it was a lot to spend this time rebranding and rebuilding my business line from scratch.. while also trying to raise our little girl.

This isn't a complaint though as I would not change a thing. I've been making sure she gets at least 1 photo taken of her everyday, and the changes are already so dramatic over the course of 4.5 months. So many milestones, and while I won't really call this a 365 project, I just figured I can't take enough. Something I look back and realize I was missing a bit as a kid.

Business-wise, I've been testing out just about every major US lab/printer as well as a couple small ones to find things that are unique, things to help separate me from the competition. Combine that with a class I've been learning a ton in, taught by +Sarah Petty , and it's an exciting and scary spring to come.

New logo should be done soon, and I can start really working the marketing. Hope the rest of you are ready to awaken this spring!

Here's Priya telling me how many months along she is... I'm so happy she chose that finger.

Story
Introduction
Always a fan of art, drawing since I was a kid, I was told art was no career. I set myself up on the suggestion of others to pursue engineering and landed myself at MIT. I then realized that I missed my true passion for the creative, and left chemical engineering for the closest field at the school: architecture & visual arts.

After years as a producer and designer in various companies, I'm currently the owner and photographer @ Anthony S Torres Photography. I love my job and hope to inspire others to always go with their heart, but work hard with their heads.

  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology
