Photographer Bobby Bruderle graduated from college last year, but chose at some point during his time as a freshman to commit his future to shooting imagery. Without the luxuries of knowledgeable professors or access to expensive camera equipment, Bobby had to teach himself—an approach which he believes “has its perks in the long run”.
Seeing the opportunity to expand into motion, he contacted Erich Roland, an Emmy Award-winning director of photography based out of D.C. Bobby spent a summer employed at Erich’s camera rental shop learning about equipment, lighting, and filmmaking.
His first gig as a “’serious’ photographer” came without the aid of traditional marketing: he had networked enough that people knew him, and that started him building his professional portfolio. Now Bobby wants his marketing to match the quality of his photography, and to that end he works with a Campaign Manager Pro marketing team.
You can read more from Bobby about his maturation into a busy commercial photographer in the full post here, at Agency Access’s blog. The Lab is an ongoing Q&A project between artists with questions and experts—many of whom are fellow artists!—with answers. In addition to sharing photographers’ stories, recent posts explore balancing your marketing to new and existing clients and keeping track of multiple portfolios.

Southern California photographer Bob Stevens has a great sense of humor, and that, in combination with his eye for the interesting, often makes for an engaging set of photos. His recent shoot at the Venice Beach Boardwalk was featured on the FoundFolios blog, showcasing the kind of fascinating work FoundFolios’ varied members can do to fellow artists, eager art buyers, and anyone else with an interest in great photography.
“I’ve long been fascinated by the Venice Boardwalk,” Bob explains in the post accompanying the images, “so I set out on a sunny fall day to capture the unique personalities that roam this concrete strip along the sand.” He captured men, women, friends, and families, bringing them into a makeshift mobile studio to control the shifting California sunlight. The result is a glimpse at the smiling faces of one-of-a-kind people in one-of-a-kind place.
See more of Bob’s photos and learn more about his body of work at the full post on the FoundFolios blog.
