I thought I would share their advice with any readers who are also beginning photographers, in an ongoing series that aims to provide some insight into the world of professional photography.
Joe Villanueva and Katie Stone professional fashion photographers. Together they own and operate Villanueva Stone Photography. Check out their inspiring words of wisdom for aspiring fashion photographers:

Just make sure you don’t go too far down the rabbit hole.
