These last few blog posts haven’t had much to do with my photography. This is my page, my life and my story. I’m going to put up whatever.
I have been travelling like crazy lately. I haven’t put much energy into my website. Last February when I lost my job, I told my co-w0rkers that I was never going back to a 9-5. I was going to put my 8hrs per day into my own endeavours. On that, I have been failing miserably. I don’t even put 4hrs per day effort into this.
Photography is such a passion project for me. I create killer work because I am passionate, and I have an amazing ability to connect with the people that I photograph. Passion is a double edged sword. I do not wake up every morning brimming with it. I am sad, happy, tired, excited, busy, mad, sick, distracted, name 100 reasons.
This is why they say that working for yourself is so hard. When I have to get to work, I go despite it all. I show up to work tired, mad, sick even, and do my job. At home it is too easy to put things off until later. As soon as I put something off, it does not get accomplished. I have to be self motivating, and that is very very difficult. I am accountable to myself, and no one else. This is evident when it comes time to pay bills. When I goof off, I get behind financially. When I focus, I kill it.
I have been putting more energy into selling my possessions than I have this photography game. Photography is such a hard luxury to sell people. I am not a salesman at all, but I have been having amazing luck selling my 15+ year collection of VW parts. I need to find the balance between selling my things and doing photography. I am loving this blogging thing. I know this blog post isn’t the finest example of my work, its all part of my growth process. I am developing my writing style, building my audience and finding my voice.
Thank you for being a part of my crazy journey! Check out my other web pages, every page represents a different part of my life. They all tie in together, yet show different things. For instance my Business Facebook is very professional, vs my Instagram page shows photos that I take in the moment. Check out my Youtube and leave some feedback. I love reading all your comments!
