howtobeaphotographer0

Looking to jump into a particular genre of professional photography? Instead of shelling out money and time for lessons, workshops, and/or internships, check out the handbook, “How to be a Photographer in Four Lessons.” Written by Brussels-based photographer Thomas Vanden Driessche, it offers the basic gist of how you can instantly become great in contemporary photography, war photography, conceptual photography, and more!

Okay, okay… the whole thing is a tongue-in-cheek project designed to give you a laugh. It’s still funny seeing various photography stereotypes listed out officially, though. Enjoy!
