How does a photographer become a photographer? Do they have a natural talent? Or do they learn from practice? I think it´s a mixture of both things. Extraordinary photographers know how to create a good image in a natural way but that would be nothing without good skills.
Sergio Larraín explains his nephew how to become a photographer. I wish it would be so easy… anyway he gives him really good advices. Hard work, common sense, critical spirit, a big amount of patience, learn from other photographers…

But internet offers thousand of tips to become a better photographer or learn better photographic techniques. Though it is highly unlikely that, with these tips, you end up workin for Magnum or National Geographic.
I´m doing my homework. I work everyday, have patience and learn from good photographers. This week I´ve discovered wonderful portfolios to share:
– Childhood summer memories
Have a nice week
