As a photographer or anyone working in the creative industries, inspiration is essential. Inspiration can come in many forms, like beautiful music, nature or just something great somebody said one time. I often get inspired by looking at other pictures, so I spend hours a week on the internet just looking at pictures.
Already for quite a while I have a profile on Pinterest, where I create many different boards and pin all beautiful and inspirational images for upcoming shoots. This is pretty much fun, although i print most of those images and put them in my ‘inspiration book’. This is a scrapbook with images found on the internet or in magazines that inspire me and giving me some ideas i would like to develop later.
Yesterday i did a love shoot at the beach, with a great stylist and a cute couple. These were the pictures i’ve used for inspiration:
And here’s a little preview of the pictures i took:
