Cool Job Series: The Photographer

shutterstock_245250853

Professional photographers combine their creativity with their technical expertise to produce images that capture an event or visually tell a story. Most photographers specialize in a certain type of photography, such as photojournalism, portrait photography or landscape photography. In addition to capturing great photos, photographers are also skilled at using the latest editing software, utilizing artificial and natural light, and marketing their work. A photographer can operate their own photography business or work for another business or organization.

Whatever the case may be, photographers need to have the top equipment and products to help them capture the best photos. Along with the essential photography equipment, photographers can also benefit from the following products:

Jazz Age Glamour

With movies like Baz Lurhmann’s The Great Gatsby in the wings, we felt it was time to honor the real star of the upcoming film, the fashion! The Jazz Age was one of the most exciting eras for style, when the norm was suddenly outdated and the avant-garde was what even your mother was wearing.

Cole Porter summed up the phenomenon best with his lyrics, “In olden days a glimpse of stocking was looked on as something shocking, but now, God knows, Anything Goes!” It was the dawn of fashion as we know it, ushering in shorter hemlines, gender-bending styles and above all a flair for fun. This collection is a modern twist on the classic looks of the day. A time when oxfords were king, champagne flowed and freedom, glam and femininity rained supreme.Jazz Age Glamour

Featuring styles from Bass, Hush Puppies, Durea, & Dirty Laundry, brands that have perfected the art of modernizing classic looks without sacrificing integrity or comfort. At Shopping Blitz we vehemently believe in the importance of individual style. Never wear what’s popular just because someone else tells you to. Wear what you love and exude what the Roaring 20’s were really all about, the freedom to be yourself!
