photography training finding inspiration
Being a professional photographer is a dream for a lot of us. I think it represents hope. Hope that there is something beyond that desk job. I know I for one had that hope for many years as I dreamed of becoming a professional photographer. What drove me was my love and passion for photography. I still remember those days. Every waking moment was spent reading, learning, practicing and dreaming of the day I would be on my own to chase my dreams. Even when I should have been working at my real job, I was playing photographer on the side.
One day I punched out and left that corporate job. I have never looked back. And make no mistake, there is not a day that goes by I don’t realize and appreciate how very lucky
I am to have a successful studio in this world of “everyone is a photographer.” I have heard many of you cry, “You don’t understand, Sal, no one wants to spend money in
my market.” “We live in a depressed part of the country.” “People don’t appreciate photography where I am from.” “Everyone is a photographer!” And on and on and on. All excuses.
This month, I want to share with you the success of others. I want to reinstall hope. I want you to see that others who have embraced our strategies have found success in their market, and not only changed their business, but transformed their life. Success can be yours. You just have to want it more than you want anything else.
