I read somewhere that there are two groups of photographers.
One group are professional photographers. They are spending only 10% of the their time shooting and the other 90% hustling, marketing, selling and servicing their clients.
The other group of photographers want to go pro because they imagined they would be spending 100% of their time doing what they love — shooting photos.
Both groups talk about how their current lives don’t allow them to do what they really want to do. An amateur thinks becoming a professional would allow you to practice photography full-time. And a professional realizes that it doesn’t.
Fulfillment doesn’t occur when one crosses the line into professional status. Rather, it’s develop a life that takes risks and makes room for that which fulfills.
I want to once again thank Mark for starting my love for photography and Debbie for helping me to make room for it in our lives.
Oh. And in case you missed the point. Making room for that which fulfills applies to pretty much everything important in life and not limited only to photography.
