L.A. Smug Meeting May 2010: Garrett Delph   Leave a comment

A SMUG is a place where photographers can learn, teach and meet up with other photographers who share the same passion. It’s also how we can tell you what’s happening in each others’ world and discover what’s happening in others. SMUGs are a great way to connect with other photographers and add a few weapons to the creative arsenal.

I attended a Smug meeting at the Global Cafe in Studio City, CA. Garrett Delph was the speaker and the topic was on “Second Shooters”. Garrett described himself as a fellow traveler who was trying to figure it out like the rest of us. He has been shooting professionally for 11 years, owns Garrett Delph Photography and co-owns ShootDotEdit. Garrett also leads the San Diego SMUG. Garrett is an all-around good guy and a veteran working professional.

I learned a lot from this meeting and it was very imformative. Garrett talked about how second shooters should present themselves (appearance and mannerisms), how they should work with the primary photographer and clients, how to avoid duplicate images and gear.
