 Should you copy other photographers and creators?

There's a lot of heat on the topic of every "picture looking the same" lately on the internet - at least on Instagram. And it is understandable - pictures travel 1Mx faster than before so "trends" will appear and disappear very quickly. Yes the question is still should you COPY other photographers and creators?



Pierre T. Lambert´s opinion is that YES, you should... BUT only in certain cases:

1- To learn how to do something. Please copy copy copy - try to replicate, master the techniques!

2- To try to shoot differently.

3- If your client is requesting you to do a very similar shot - yet with differences it is understandable. Hard for certain shots to be "unique" or "original" - so much has already been done. Yet every shot will be different!

Videos Pierre suggests watching around the topic:

- Jamie Windsor: Why YOUR IDEA'S NOT ORIGINAL (and what YOU can do about it)



- Peter McKinnon (he published 3hrs before he got that one online - super random - guess it's copy-cat Monday?): I AM NOT PETER MCKINNON
