Dave Hill

Being a photographer in an ever changing and extremely rapidly growing industry means one of two things. One, You're faced with a growing trend of photographers flooding the market. Two, staying above the rest of the people (or at least standing out) is a necessity. By this I mean you need to be ever evolving just like the industry is. You also need to have a style and set of skills that keeps you a head of the competition. One such photographer is Dave Hill Dave Hill is an extremely talented photographer. His lighting skills matched with his creative post processing makes him a diverse and dynamic photographer. Dave Hill started a trend. He started producing a certain feel, style, and flare with his photographs. This look spread world wide and has created an entire following of photographers that try and duplicate his methods. Being the trend-setter he is, he's not one to give away secrets that would make it totally possible to duplicate his amazing photographs. People have tried. With moderate success you can achieve a look that is similar to his. But unless you are Dave Hill or someone close to him who knows his creative process, and are willing to share, Dave Hill will easily remain above his competition and continue to evolve as the industry does. I am eager to see what he comes up with next.

The dark gray text against the grey background is hard to read on your blog.
