Behind-the-scenes (BTS) stories are the ultimate exercise in self-promotion. They challenge a photographer to take their skills they use on a daily basis making other people's products and services look great and apply it to themselves.
BTS stories might showcase the attention to detail that a photographer gives to their client or a tool to convey their own personality and confidence — both of these traits are a must when dealing with agencies and clients. The stories can also show the vast amount of time and preparation that go into producing a large shoot.
This week's BTS showcase: Cassandra Plavoukos
I’m a people-person with a lifelong passion for the visual and performing arts. My vision as an artist is to create authentic imagery, whether personal or assigned, that honors the beauty of self-expression and celebrates the human creative impulse that lives within and connects each of us. I’m fascinated by the human body. I love to experiment with lines, shapes, texture, and movement. I thrive on the creative-collaborative process and enjoy making pictures both in studio and on location. It should come as no surprise that my interests beyond making pictures include fitness, dance, and music. They are an integral part of my life and help to define who I am as a photographer.
