Tamara Burross – From The Treetop

  • Shooting professionally since 2005, started in photography 2002. 
  • Started with clothing design…very involved with style and setting…vintage photography. 
  • Over time people started asking more about the photos then the clothing and I was approached about becoming a photographer and I was started.
  • Conceptual art – Started as a children’s photographer and over time it evolved into a family session from requests, however, this wasn’t what I thought was what set me apart.  Stepped back and thought of my passion…what I could focus on that I am best at. 
  • Love using Lensbaby lenses…there is an art to using the lenses

  • Questions: 
    • How much money on props?  Not much…antique mall browsing. 
    • Pricing – Recently changed whole business model.  Previously 75% would buy the whole digital package.  Now it is a set package…you hire me and this is what you get. 
    • White Balance – I shoot RAW, previously tried to get it right at the time of the shot.  Now I edit in Lightroom to the White Balance I want. 

  • Equipment:
  • Lenses:
  • Editing – Photoshop, also selling Photoshop Actions
  • Do you repeat a lot of the same shots for different sessions? Rarely, not a replica of a prior session.  Each session is tailored to the customer…I would encourage the the client to move away from a prior session and elaborate on a prior session to what fits the client.
