As a photographer it’s hard to distinguish yourself. A netwerk and portfolio are crucial. In the beginning this was something I really struggled with and put tons of hours in for nothing.
There are times where you feel like losing hope. Everytime hoping for that one shot, that one connection, that one experience. Not doing anything and having a lot of free time are therefore no options for me. Currently, I’m studying 4 days in the week and photographing 2 days a week too. Everytime I’m getting ready for that one shot to follow my dream.
You want and need to invest in yourself. That’s what drives me as an entrepreneur. Even though sometimes I still feel like it’s just my hobby. It’s not bad to fall, not at all. It’s part of the process. Hard work and passion for your craft are the most important, the rest will follow.
