Sex Sells... everything else doesn't.

I was browsing around fstoppers and noticed something a bit odd seeing great photographers who don't shoot sexy nearly or actually naked women do not shine over those photographers who shoot that.

What Should You Be Shooting?

Have you ever wondered what genre you are best suited for photographing? It is incredibly hard to take an objective view of our own work. Sometimes we create images but we don't quite know what our strengths and weaknesses are.

Post a link in here to your profile, or attach a few samples of work, and let us all give you our unbiased...
