Today We have a guset Interview from http://www.orlandoech.com/

You can also look at his work on his flickr page aswell





Orlandoech is a freelance photographer, who does Automotive , and people shots.



First of all, I love the work you do with your automotive
shots. You have some very stunning shots.

Orlando: Thanks, I appreciate the kind words.




Q: Can you tell us something about yourself, how did you start in photography and what do you love most about it?

A: I'm 24yrs old; I’m a full time Network Administrator in Salt Lake City, UT. I got started in photography not too long actually; it was Nov. 2007 when I got my first DSLR (Nikon D40). What I love most about photography is how challenging it is. It keeps me on my feet with being as innovative, creative and patient as possible.


Q: Focusing on the automotive side of things. How did you get started in this industry?


A: I started out photographing anything in general to just learn the basics. I've had a passion for vehicles since I was a kid, so this was an easy path to follow with photography. I then got in touch with pro-automotive photographer Josh Mackey (www.MackeyDesigns.com), who then mentored me and taught me pretty much everything I know, from photography essentials to photoshop skills.




Q: Who do you shoot for? Do you photograph for magazines, commercial or for car enthusiasts? Or all of the above?

A: I do freelance work, so anyone and/or company needed work. I’ve shot for magazines such as Import Tuner, companies such as ScoobyWorld, locals, local companies, etc.


Q: Did you learn on the job? What was the learning curve for you like?


A: I'm always learning something new, whether on the job or from reading. The learning curve never seems to come to an end really. I'm always learning new tricks, skills and best practices from other photographers such as Scott Dukes, Scott Chu, Clint Davis, Josh Mackey, Devin LeFevere and Jeff Creech, all which are awesome people and photographers.























Q: What equipment do you use? Are you a canon supporter or Nikon or something else?


A: I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II and a few "L" lenses mostly. Canon or Nikon? Both are amazing.

Q: What is one piece of advice you would like to share with anyone trying to get into automotive photography?


A: It can be a challenge. Like everything else, politics are involved and you better be able to handle very harsh critique and keep challenging yourself.


Q: Who is your most inspirational photographer?


A: Without a doubt Easton Chang


Q: Who is someone you would like to share with the world? A hidden gem or your favorite automotive photographer maybe?


A: Uhh.... not sure really lol.


Well Thank you for being a guest on my website, Yo have mentioned some good names for us to research and I wish you well in your career and I hope we can do this again sometime.
