It's been a while since I've made a post. I almost forgot how blogging helps to release stress. So many things have been going on these past few months. I officially have my own photo business now. I got sick and tired of working at the same company, listening to the same bullshit from people that don't value who I am and the expertise that I bring to the table. Overall, it was a pretty good experience, but when you dedicate six years of your life, like I did, to a company you expect more.
Of course everyone has bills to pay, but why continue to do something that you don't really want to be doing? Life is short, enjoy it while it's happening. Being a full-time photographer has to be one of the most frustrating/rewarding career choices a person can pursue. I will tell you though that it's more business than photography. I spend more time marketing than shooting. In a perfect world I a rep would be awesome, but I love not having to work for another person's company.
So that's my "I'm back" speech for today, lol. For all the people that have jobs instead of careers, take a look in the mirror and ask yourself "what do I want to do that will make me happy and what are the steps I need to take to get there?"
