Change seems to be the only constant in photographer’s life. As a freelance visual content creator I constantly find myself learning new trades, new marketing techniques, new equipment, new technologies, …
This changed my mind
Case in point: If you would have told me a few years ago, that I was going to be filming a documentary in Afghanistan, I would have not believed you. At all. That was just not gonna happen – not the working in Afghanistan part, but the shooting video part. Well, guess what, I changed. Today I actively look for change, trying to stay ahead of it.
So I love change – and if you create photographs for a living, so should you. Change keeps you sharp. Over the 20+ years in my photographic career, I’ve changed many times.
Check out the article I wrote on Strictly Business, the blog of the American Society of Media Photographers, on some of the changes I’ve gone through in the last 20 years of my career called “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often” You’ll learn why change is not only good, it’s necessary.
