Hey, You… Listen Up!

I’m often asked if I have any advice for a person just beginning their photographic journey. The main reason, if not the only reason, to keep snapping the shutter is to create images that come from the heart. Pay no attention to what others say. Look at other people’s photographs and when you’re out there camera to eye, try to pull out what is your vision and express that through the photographs. Love your own photographs because, frankly, nobody else will, initially. It takes time to find your voice so make sure you take your time and take baby steps. Don’t think of it as your financial future, because you will not likely make a living as a photographer. Do it because you love it. It will show with every image.
