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: Cedric Terrell
Cedric Terrell has made it his life's work to celebrate the art of living through photography that is visually precise and narratively compelling. The seven-year active-duty Marine veteran sees photography as a form of empowerment for commercial clients, for people from all walks of life, and for himself. His compositions have elevated established and emerging fashion, media, and lifestyle brands, complementing an evolving body of personal work focused on telling compelling stories of people and place.
