Scott Borrero, 29, is a commercial freelance photographer that has shot for brands from Canon to Jeep.

Borrero, now a 29-year-old freelance commercial photographer, said that without that mentorship and his willingness to ask for help, he may have never even wound up on the web series hosted by Nigel Barker, let alone taking away the title and $50,000 prize package.

With the guidance of veteran photographers helping to shape his career, Borrero recently shared his experience from Top Photographer with Digital Trends — along with a few tips for new photographers in the same spot he found himself in less than eight years ago.

While shucking off that initial nervousness to ask a photographer for help launched his career, Borrero says those same nerves popped up as the Top Photographer series began.

The freelance photographer says he was in his own head, overthinking his shots and it wasn t until he decided to relax and have fun that his work gained an extra edge.

So, I just went out and had fun and it made all the difference.
