I have a long way to go before my photography and my photography career are where I want them to be.
Even though I support my family of six entirely through my photography, and I have met with a relative torrent of success since moving from Utah to Las Vegas, I do not yet consider myself a successful photographer.
However, I have learned a few things since I started seriously shooting back in 2006.
To re-launch my blog, I am posting “10 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Photography”.
I will expound a bit on each one over the next week or so. For now, here they are, in teaser format:
1. Shoot Ordinary People.
2. Seek Out Your Betters, Shut Up and Listen.
3. Hire an Assistant.
4. Invest in Yourself. Take a Workshop.
5. Get Closer. Get Away.
6. Ya Gotta Serve Somebody.
7. Say “Thank You.”
8. Shoot Into the Sun.
9. Move Around.
10. Never Go Full Retard.
