The last time I went golfing I almost killed a dude.
That’s how bad I am.
Besides, I don’t really like the game. I find it odd, like yoga.
(I started yoga last month…what a weird activity that is…more on that later)
Strange, strange stuff…..but it could be me. Who knows.
One thing about golf that is super cool, is the tight feedback loop.
You know instantly if you’re doing ok. Music is the same way.
You hit the ball, it responds with scientific accuracy.
You play a note, it’s either in tune, or not.
You take a photograph….well, maybe it’s ok, maybe it’s not.
So you post it on flakebook. A hundred peeps tell you it’s amazing. You feel good.
Wow….I am a photographer. Look at what I created. Look at the love and admiration.
I’ve said this a million times.
Love it or hate it, it’s about as scientific as you can get in this field: the only feedback
loop that matters in the business of photography is the money.
Show me the money.
Unless, of course, you’re in it for the hobby and therapy, which if perfectly OK.
But if you’re in the biz side of things, the ONLY feedback loop that matters is sales.
Profits. Cash. Sheckles. Don’t fight me on this one. You will lose.
There is no alternative. We live on an economic planet. It’s always been that way.
Don’t like it? Find another planet. Or, take up photography for other reasons.
For me, it’s my passion, and my “job”.
My feedback loop is the profit loss statement. Everyone wins when I win. My wife, my family,
and especially my clients.
They must. They keep coming back.
Yours in photography and success,
