Growing up, I know when I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up and said “artist”, I would get *That* look. The one that says “Oh child, someday you will learn that all artists are starving and when that happens I hope you have the training to get a real job”. Or possibly “You’ll learn when you get older”.
As time went on, I discovered the truth in that but never lost the desire to be creative.
When I tell people that I’m a photographer, I get pretty much the same reaction as I did when I was younger. This time though, I know what I do. I am currently doing it. Currently making money. More importantly, I’m also helping other photographers make their businesses profitable and work how they want them to.
Regardless of what other people think, being strong in my own knowledge it doesn’t matter what others think about it.
