Kellie Bieser is the owner and photographer for Shutter & Glass Photography. I love the many golden nuggets she’s shared with us in her piece. The mindset she has for photography is something we could all incorporate into our lives. It’s awesome to read how happy she is and how much fun she has with photography and her clients.
Having your own photography business is a dream for many. There will be prosperous times, but also lots of hardships. The key is to relentlessly pursue the dream and to keep the passion aflame. Be inspired by Kate Densmore and learn from her experiences with the ups and downs of the business.
Photography is a subjective art. Not everyone is going to like what you do. Will you be able to move past a scathing critic’s opinions and continue with the work that you love? Katrina Tait shows us that a never give up attitude and a great support system are what has allowed her to find success and joy in photography.
I’m sure all of us have at some point in time thought about traveling to an exotic location. What a dream that would be for a photographer. Sian Robertson recounts a trip to the Falkland Islands and how she fell in love with the wildlife and landscapes there.
It’s easy to betray our loves when things are tough. Our passion for photography is no exception. Chris Winton-Stahle provides us some insight on how to nurture our unique artistic vision and how to balance the fear of failure with the need to be to be ourselves when pursing professional growth.
