The Art of Capturing Everyday Life

Lifestyle photography is an art form in and of itself. And even if you’re a photographer who places a heavy emphasis on posed images, you’ll still find a need for candid, lifestyle imagery within your work. In fact, no matter what type of photography you specialize in – be it family, newborn or wedding – you probably already realize that this “capture the moment” imagery is in demand from clients everywhere.

This guide answers all the questions you need to know about lifestyle photography, and gives you answers to questions you didn’t even know you had. Not only does it teach you insider, expert tips on crafting stunning lifestyle images, but it’s loaded with nuggets of inspiration to promote your own, internal growth as a photographer. Just try to read this one without walking away feeling eager to click that shutter button.

Our Lifestyle Guide is a collaboration between BP4U and ultra-talented photographer Jordan Parks, and we recommend it for both beginner and intermediate photographers. See the pink What's Included tab below to see the topics covered in this guide.
