    Shooting Test, TFP, Non-Commissioned and Charity
    I have seen this pop up soo many times in Facebook groups and other photography communities and I wanted to demystify it a little bit. I wanted to know what exactly test, TFP, non commissioned and charity means and why one came to be. So I started researching this and I think no one really uses the right term. It’s a mush of everything together in one big pot. But this is what I’ve found searching online and asking fellow photographers.

    Shooting the cover for the 100th issue of Zoom Magazine one of Hollands biggest Photography Magazines is freaking awesome! They contacted me because of my Fashion&Fine-Art background and thought I would know how to build a dress from 100th covers. They challenged me to build and shoot a dress made from all the past 100 issues, and it needed to be shot within a week. Who doesn’t like a challenge! so Accepted! Phone rang:

    I’ve taught a few lectures and workshops. In these I also refer to the people I look up too and other cool friends making awesome and I’ve heard this over and over again: “But I’m not as creative as them”. I’m not always sure what that means. So let’s nip that excuse in the butt. You say you’re not creative? I’m going to ask you something. And you’re going to get 5 seconds to think about it.

    RichardTerborg_Elinchrom_ELC-3

    Elinchrom has introduced a new flash!!! The awesome Elinchrom ELC Pro HD 500 & 1000 Watt!
    I’m not going into how happy I am with the Elinchrom brand and all the 1000 reasons you will love this brand as well, But I had the chance to play around with these puppy’s. They claim it will change the way a photographer thinks.. I think thats a bold statement. But it does have some very interesting stuff I like very very much. Before going into the new “creative features”, here are a few things that I found worth mentioning right off the bat! Normally I don’t like talking about how things look… BUT!:

  5. Starting the Photography business – Part 2

    Check out Part I, where I talk about figuring out what you want in life. Now it’s time to flip that and turn it into something that can pay for your food and housing.

    After I kinda figured out what I wanted to do, it was time to figure out how to get paid to do it. Knowing what you want, and getting paid for what you want are different things. I’ve never really liked business. I’m not a suit-wearing, networking-events-going kind of guy. I don’t really like talking to people I can’t relate to. You sometimes see people force themselves into relationships, trying to keep them because they want something from the other.

  6. Starting the Photography Business – Part 1

    RichardTerborg_LostMyMind1

    Every person has his or her own way. I can only share with you the path I’ve walked. Once you have decided that photography is the thing you would like to pursue, you do some research on the photography businesses around you. And sooner or later you will hit a wall with a question that will stick for a while: Who am I? And what do I want that will make me happy? Before you figure out who you’re trying to reach with your work, you need to figure out who you are, and what it is you have to offer/give.
