Michael Afonso: How a Portrait Photographer Went Pro

Thinking of going pro? Want to know what it takes? Michael Afonso shares his story.

Right away I’d say most of my portraits were just trial and error with nothing I was really comparing myself to. I was just having fun with my camera and learning what lenses would work with certain situations. It was fun but I wasn’t learning that much. Eventually I started browsing flickr and other photography sources. I ended up finding a lot of individual artists who inspired me.
