When you’re starting out as a photography studio, there’s a real value is saying yes to everything.
Don’t confuse this with giving all your work away for free. Say yes to selling, shooting and learning.
School is never out for the pro. To this day I still “attend classes on photography.”
My brain isn’t full yet.
For example, last weekend I had a wedding. The day before and earlier on that day I watched a bunch of youtube videos from younger photographers who have some really cool and creative ideas and videos on shooting.
I want to learn. At 62, why not? I’m still hungry!
Ego and pride are always the enemy. Listen, this works. We need a constant and ongoing source of quality education and inspiration.
Best part is it works. My clients see me shooting, and are amazed. Little do they know I learned and got inspired by kids in their age group.
One of my favorite photographers is Fuzzy Duenkel. A few years ago I snagged him for a five-part Advanced Training series. For members.
In my opinion no one is more qualified and skilled on how to manage lighting on location then Fuzzy.
It’s a tad technical, but off the charts good. We can all learn while on our never ending road to mastery and profits.
Enjoy. Learn and grow.
yours in success and photography
