There are so many weird and wonderful career paths out there, and somehow life did lead me to become a photographer. Of course, this isn’t for everyone, but there are a lot of people out there who love photography and would love to do this as a career. If this is something that interests you as more than just a hobby you probably want to think about what you can do to become the best possible photographer.
These days every 3rd person calls themselves a photographer but there is more to this business than mastering your camera settings and Photoshop. To become a successful photographer you need to be a marketer, advertiser, graphic designer, customer service representative and yes- a photographer.
When I saw a couple of my photog friends looking tired and finding excuses to not go to all sorts of social events just because “it is the season and I have to catch up on editing before the deadline.” That is when I understood that there must be more to it.
