Start Your Own Thing And Follow Your Interests

- - Blog News

It’s a great job working with magazines as a photographer and it’s really exciting, but then at a certain point you realize that you are just waiting for the phone to ring, you are waiting for that perfect assignment. At that point, I think it is really important to start your own thing – follow your own interests.

  1. I completely agree – the same can be said for any job where you are working for someone else. There comes a time when you may need to just fuel your own fire, that is why I started a year long project called 365 days of fish. I make a fish out of things I find anywhere (my refrigerator, hiking, on walks, in toy stores, etc.), photograph them, and post them my blog. I have found much gratification in these daily creations. I am on day 276 – check it out if you need some inspiration

  3. You know this is the same with everything in life.
    You would think past teaches us at least anything, but that’s so rare.
    Hate all you want but the world is changing, and none of us have no control over it.
    E.g., imagine Obama had enough balls to put Putin to his place, but it seems like it’s not happening, welcome third world war.
    Awesome post, thanks!
