Evolving as Creators
- Imposter syndrome only exists when you’re not trying to be who you truly are.
- Effort beats talent every day. How bad do you want this?
- Are your photos that you’re putting on display showing who you are as an artist and person?
- Think about how you want your work to feel. How would you want your work to feel if it was music?
- Everyone shoots and sees things in a different way – this will all speak to a different type of client.
- There’s a season for photographers, and we have to work hard to extend that season.
- Associates can be a good option to add longevity to your career.
- There are photographers in their 50s still shooting. The old guard of gatekeepers are changing.
- The way people are receiving work is changing. Everyone has the opportunity to have a voice.
- Feel comfortable to something that feels like a passion, that might feel like it might not get the best reaction.
