is an editorial and commercial photographer based in Charlotte, NC with clients that range from national and local magazines to Fortune 500 Corporations to ad agencies to TV networks. A graduate of RIT, he has worked as a newspaper photojournalist, a war photographer, a fashion photographer, a sports photographer, a travel photographer, a food photographer, a still life photographer, a news and sports photo editor, a set builder and designer and a prop man. All of these vast and different experiences have help shaped him and the way he sees the world. When not shooting or editing or doing marketing or billing, he can be found playing with his 3 dogs or fly fishing on a mountain river.
On this episode I chat with my good friend Peter Taylor who is a successful editorial and commercial photographer based in Charlotte, North Carolina. He’s served in the Army, photographed three war zones, spent some time photo editing at AOL, and now takes on a range of clients from top chefs, restaurants, cigar companies, and more. We talk all about business, licensing, bidding for jobs, and how to continue finding new clients. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade podcast!
