Giving Credit Where Credit is Due
Today as I sit here, ready to tackle new challenges, I can't help but think about all the amazing people that have inspired me. They have taken the time to answer questions, dumb questions, they include me as a second shooter, give me advice on how to improve my work and most importantly they celebrate with me when I succeed. Of course we all do this for each other. Let's face it, this business is not easy or friendly as I found out in my early days.
Some photographers want to keep what they know a secret. They don't share locations, or editing techniques, business tips or posing techniques. I get it, I do. It takes a lot of time and a lot of sacrifice to get to a successful place and just when you think you've made it, something comes along and changes everything. These photographers have been teachers, professors & friends. And for that, I thank them. You are what keeps me going. You inspire me. I adore you and am a better photographer (and person) for knowing you!
If you have a moment to check them out, I highly recommend that you do, you won't be disappointed.
