OC Smug Meeting July 2011 – John Mireles   Leave a comment

“The most important things that a photographer should carry are her/his feelings and emotions, because you can make a great picture with your soul, not your eyes. You can’t make images that affect others if you aren’t in some way affected while making them.” ~Brenda Tharp

That is one of my favorite quotes. It was also very fitting to the OC Smug Meeting in Costa Mesa that I went to last night where the speaker was John Mireles and the topic was on “Getting The Clients You Want And The Money You Dreamed Of“. He basically discussed how to stay true to yourself…how to make your work unique and stand out from the rest. You can follow the latest trends and have all the latest camera equipment, but your personal vision has to come from your heart.

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