It is important to have trust and confidence in a photographer. After all, you entrust a photographer to showcase your products and/or services (if a commercial shoot) or to present your family and friends (if a portrait shoot or a wedding) in the very best light. This is why I have made every attempt to make the bokeh photographic Blog different to most other photography blogs. Let me explain.

The established convention in photography blogs is that each post should feature images from a photographer’s last shoot. Each individual entry is also usually described as offering a ‘sneak peek’ - implying exclusive and privileged viewing of photographs. In fact, despite what is suggested, such blog posts are in no way special as there is no pre-selection of audience (in other words, the images are available to anyone who wishes to read the blog) whilst typically each and every blog entry is based on a so-called sneak peek (i.e. when all blog posts offer a sneak peek the notion is somewhat devalued). It’s also probably worth pointing out that simply blogging images from a recent photo shoot is the easiest possible type of post for a photographer. There’s very little effort involved as all that is required is to ‘cut & paste’ from a client gallery.

Although I personally regard ‘sneak peak’ photography blogs as contrived that is not the main reason for making the bokeh photographic Blog different. My main concern is that this approach to blogging doesn’t tell you anything additional about a photographer beyond what is already known from the images contained in that photographer’s portfolio. In effect, the blog simply duplicates the portfolio. In my opinion, a blog should be interesting, informative (and also entertaining in terms of offering a good read) and should help readers make a decision about whether to commission the photographer that has written that blog. Whilst a photography blog should complement a photography portfolio it should be different to the portfolio and crucially provide something additional that will prove useful to the reader.

So what can you expect to read in the bokeh photographic Blog?

  • Firstly, short posts - 500 words or less - as client feedback is that shorter blog entries are preferable to longer posts. Each post should normally take no longer than five minutes to read.
  • Secondly, interesting, informative and hopefully entertaining posts which tell you something about me, my methods of working, the photographic equipment I use (particularly the more unusual kit) and the services that I offer. The idea is that the blog will help you make a decision about whether to commission me as your photographer or maybe just find out something you didn’t know beforehand.

So, whilst bokeh photographic Blog entries might occasionally feature images from a recent shoot you can be assured that you definitely won’t ever come across the words ‘sneak peek’.
