In today's fast-paced world, it's easy to get caught up in the competitive nature of business. However, as photographers, we have the unique opportunity to embrace the concept of community over competition. By supporting one another and celebrating each other's successes, we can create a thriving environment where everyone benefits. This blog post will discuss the importance of community within the photography industry and how it can help propel small businesses forward.
As a passionate photographer, there's no greater satisfaction than seeing your peers excel in their craft. With the rise of the "Great Resignation," we're witnessing a surge in the number of small businesses emerging across various industries. This presents a fantastic opportunity for photographers, as these budding enterprises will require professional branding imagery.
The beauty of the photography industry...
One day you’ll be creative and everything flows.
The next you’ll be wanting to gag at your own work. I heard it from Judd Apatow first. The Vomit Pass.
He continued to say that if you judge yourself on your first draft, you’ll never make it to the next one.
So write it out, take that photo, make that post, share the Reel, tell the story.
Stop being so pedantic over everything.
Nothing you do will ever be perfect, but if you don't TRY, you’ll never move.
I worked super hard and for a long time to be working with and photographing women like this. Photos like these don’t just happen.
I paid my dues and definitely told myself that I suck at my own work.
But then, one day, you’ll be looking at your work and smiling because you know that you’ve achieved your goal.
You’ll finally be happy with your work.
I’m so happy with this that I open my phone often to smile at it.
