Stay true to your art! If you have a style that pleases you and you get excited over the images you produce, you will start to get clients that share the same artistic vision and the work will come.

I had a photographer friend years ago that told me the importance of catching the subjects personality through their eyes. This has stuck with me over the years.

A ton of lenses but I use the 24-70 2.8 and the 70-200 2.8 the most. I love the glass on both of these lenses and they seem to cover the focal length that I need.
