While updating my personal blog last week I stumbled upon across a link I had shared a while ago titled Advice. It’s a collection of thoughts on what every aspiring photographer should know that range from “learn to say I’m a photographer out loud with a straight face” to “style is a voice, not a prop or action” and my favorite “never compare your journey with someone else’s. It’s a marathon with no finish line. You will never “arrive”. No one ever does.” I read this list a long time ago, but I realize how some of these words have settled somewhere in a remote corner of my mind, offering comfort, encouragement and perspective when I most need them.
What are the advice, the words, the thoughts that other photographers, friends, teachers shared with you that have helped you when holding a camera? Please share with us today.
