A few month ago I had pulled my social media account and closed down my website because I had decided maybe this dream will never happen. I don’t have the luxury of buying new equipment and upgrading my camera; so I began feeling stuck and defeated. I was second guessing myself and my path as a photographer.
Luckily for me, I don’t depend on my photography for income - otherwise I would be living on the streets. I also do not believe in charging clients exuberant amounts of money either, which is probably my downfall. When I got my first camera, I began offering free photo shoots to create and build my skills and portfolio. Not only did this help me grow, but it gave me hands on learning experiences and I created a small clientele.
I am happy to announce that regardless of my over analytical thinking, I am going to continue forging ahead with my work as a photographer. I will continue sharing my experiences through this blog, and perhaps I will reach an audience who feels the same and wants to grow with me. Never give up, and never compare yourself or your work to anyone else.
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year 2019! Make every day count.
