10 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Photography

June 15, 2010 | By | No Comments

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.
