The Hit List: 33 Photo Tips & Tutorials from 2012
You can drive a car on the freeway staying in your lane by looking back through the rearview mirror. While it’s not the best way to drive a car, it’s completely possibly.
You just don’t want to run your life that way. Especially when it comes to health, finances, and relationships.
Add photography to that list, too.
Year in Review (Looking Ahead)
As a wedding photographer, I take a serious look at my business and the inner workings of what makes it tic. This includes the four pillars of what I believe make a successful wedding photographer today: education, experience, networking, and tools. None of which come cheap.
At the end of the day, awards, re-tweets, and blog comments mean nothing more than a mechanism to earn happy clients. I take those accolades seriously (when my Mom or Mother-in-Law (M.I.L. as she is know) comments, I pause, blush for a moment, then get back to what I do: take meaningful photographs of couples in love.
I’m in a constant search for growth that leads to a fulfilling creative avenue in not only photography, but personal fulfillment. As much as love creating, I love to share. Especially with other photographers, theoretically my competition. But I look at it as a way to give back and help make the wedding industry a better place.
