    I guess that photography can be treated as a business like any other, but you have to be an artist if you want to be successful in this line of work.

  • I recently watched a documentary about Annie Leibovitz and couldn’t help but think, “Wow. Now SHE is a photographer.

  • Thanks for suggesting the book. I am planning to get one ASAP.

    I ourchased my camera for myself as a gift and started taking photos about 2 yrs ago. Just for fun. I took one photos class and really enjoyed it. I never thought about doing photgraphy as a job, I have been a nurse for 15 yrs, until this past Christmas. I took a couple of my photos to a store to be framed for Christmas gifts for my boyfriend and his daughter. My boyfriend has always been very supportive and encouraging about my photography. The shop asked me to bring in some more photos and he would display them and see if anyone purchased them. I said Ok and laugh. The day before Valentines the store called and said someone purchased my photo “the blue chair.” I couldn't believe it I was so excited. I called my boyfriend and he said “see I told you you were amazing.” The next night at dinner and after the concert my boyfriend gave me my Valentine gift….. He had purchased my first photo because he always wants to be my very first customer he said “because you never forget your first customer.” That was the greatest gift he ever gave me… the insipration to go after my dreams…. Now I have photos in several shops around town and I am taking 3 weeks off and traveling up north west to take photos and I can't think of a better vacation or life….. My boyfriend and I parted ways but he still emails me almost daily and sends me photos to look at and encourages me to cont. following my dreams…. His last email said “keep going and never forget how amazing you are…” If I can do it so can you….. To my first customer….Rick R. ” I love you for all your support for all your affection for sharing your children with me for loving mine and insipring me; our paths will cross again one day and we will be on this journey together. You make me amazing.”
