Welcome to My Blog

We, as photographers, are fortunate. We are called to use our creative gifts in a way that directly influences others. Our burning desire to capture the moment and the true essence of our subject matter is what drives us to get out of bed in the morning. I don’t know about you, but I look at magazines and browse galleries and art shows and seriously envy the lives I imagine these successful photographers have. More often than not, I see a photo and compare it to my own work, thinking, “my images are just as good, why am I not being featured in this magazine.” Why not indeed?

Hi my name is MP Collins and I’m a recent business and photography school graduate setting out to make bank as a commercial photographer.  I love marketing, advertising and helping others so I hope you’ll follow along, learning from my missteps and successes to become master your own personal universe.
