We start today with Selina Maitreya, a photographers consultant who has helped many photographers achieve their goal of finding their voice, of finding their ‘Style’.

Selina and I on MP3. Feel free to download and save.

Some of the discussions we have had on style range from how to ‘create’ one to how to recognize one when we find it.

The photographers we interviewed for this series are varied in their style, their approach to the work, how they see their own work and how they believe others see it.

Here is Selina’s Bio on the “Going Pro NOW” site. We will be working on next year for a launch, and sorry the economy left us feeling pretty uncertain for this year.

Here’s an interview with Selina and photographer Craig Ferguson.

A Photo Editor (APE) had a great interview with Selina a short while ago.

And lastly, a blog post on the “Value” your photographs have.

  1. That was a fantastic interview! I really enjoyed the topic of focusing on images that you have access to – that could be a conversation of itself. It goes in so well with what we discussed about pushing our own envelope – developing our style by continually working just outside of our own comfort zone, but within our reach.

  2. Thank you for this interview!
    It’s a really interesting\vital topic and your discussion has some points that I haven’t thought about before.
    I personally struggle with my style (not only in photography, but personally too – house, clothing, etc) – I just find myself liking so many different things. All at the same time. And If I try to implement them – I get bored, and I want to move on… and I do. I start trying new things, new techniques (not new equipment though :))
    I don’t know – maybe I have ADD :))

  3. Great insights.
