As the wedding photography industry gets more and more saturated with competition, some photographers may switch over into different niches that aren’t as hot. Here’s a 1.5-minute video that offers a glimpse into the work of Tom Byrd, a professional divorce photographer.
“For a lot of people, the day their divorce is finalized is the new happiest day of their life,” Byrd says in the Comedy Central “Mini-Mock” (wink wink). “I encourage people to get personal, vulnerable.”
Byrd says he sometimes takes the couple back to the location of their first big fight to rekindle “that energy.” And instead of shooting a wedding party, Byrd’s subjects are often happy divorce lawyers.
