Photography is probably the only thing that I have in my life that is truly mine. I am uber protective of it…really it is kind of ridiculous. It’s probably no secret that I am working on building a portfolio…and I get a lot of advice from well meaning people about what I should do…which of course tends to be what they like or what they think would bring in the big bucks. But guess what…I’m not listening!! hahahaha!!!!
When my portfolio is finished it will be full of the images that speak to me…and I could really care less if I ever make any money with my photography. I would be happy as a clam going through the rest of my life just snapping the shots that I am inspired to snap. Sure, it’d be cool (okay, amazing/awesome) if someone else liked them too and wanted to pay me to create more of them…but I need to keep this thing mine.
And hey…this guy couldn’t agree more. Check out his inspiring words.
