It Doesn’t Hurt To Think Outside Of The Box

If you’ve ever wondered whether your career in taking photographs could get you laid – wonder no more. Granted, a person who can take stunning images holds sex appeal without even opening their mouth but it doesn’t always do the trick. Have you ever considered dating one of your subjects?

If you’re a girl, maybe you’re tired of seeing the same old beautiful skinny models day in and day out and the guys in the fashion industry are probably the most conceded lot you’ve ever laid your lens on. If you’re a guy, maybe you’ve tried chatting up the subjects of your shoot but to no avail. Either way, you know that people that are in the fashion industry really aren’t that clever and they’re probably looking for like-minded individuals to meet and procreate with to continue the cycle of complete douchery.

If you decide you want to change things up and you want to meet people that not only are good looking but also have a good brand and are actually smart – consider working in corporate photography. This kind of career path can not only get your portfolio to be taken seriously in other industries, but it can also connect you with people that know business and are most likely very rich. You could just walk away with a nice sugar mamma or sugar daddy after a while. It would be a cute story – you met while photographing them and you increased their sales by a large percent because of your talent.

What do they say, Opposites attract? If you’re the creative one with flair in all things Art, finding someone who is more business-minded, stable and professional could be a good look and balance for you. As you know, careers in art are sometimes far and in between and sometimes they’re only taken on as freelance work. You kind of need something to fall back on. But this is not to say that everyone you meet while doing corporate photography will be a winner. Sure, there will be some dogs in any career choice you make – but consider that a stepping stone while you scout out the rich and successful. That’s probably you’re ultimate goal, anyways. Am I right?

It is possible that you just want to pursue this kind of thing purely because it interests you – and that’s probably the best way to go about it. But it doesn’t hurt to think a little outside of the box when considering your future and stability, does it?
