My college years unfolded during the early
‘80s, before the Internet really exploded, before
smartphones, and before personal relationships
and business decisions were documented in
Facebook status updates. Being social and
communicating with others took place the old fashioned way,
via written letters (yes, on paper!) and in-person encounters to
group gatherings and get-togethers. Fast-forward to the way
we learn and socialize these days, which changes faster than
you can post your latest selfie. So how do photographers stay
connected? This is our very first Social Issue, and we are excited
to explore how the industry expresses itself and networks.
On the following pages, we encourage you to trace with us the
evolution of social media, discover why photographers post
photos the way they do, find out if blogging is really right for
you, keep pace with the ever-changing social media algorithms
and peek inside the workings of experiential workshops. We
even have a handy cheat sheet to posting on four different
platforms that you can cut out and save.
So what are you waiting for? Go get social!

tips and insights. Enjoy!

ON THE COVER
Heidi Browne (of the wedding duo Forged in the
North) was channeling Julius Shulman’s 1960’s L.A.
work in shooting for Hollywood Closet Rentals,
owned by the stylist Roxy Ortiz. “We wanted all the
looks to pop with bright, bold colors,” so midday
light was ideal, says Browne, who worked with
Barberella Hair and the makeup artist Amber Bruehl.
“Roxy styled this particular look to be sexy, playful
and confident.” Model Kelsey Evenson pulled it off,
and embodied the “It” girl fit for our Social Issue.
Heidi and Ryan Browne paired with Lev Kuperman
(Rf 30 Rising Stars in 2015) on WRKSHP, an in-person learning experience for photographers.

networks” like this, starting on page 54.
