Reinventing myself as a fine art photographer is like throwing a car into reverse after driving 70 miles an hour on a freeway for 20 years. It's hard. It gives me whiplash. It's terrifying to put so much energy into putting my peronsal work out there and not know what may come of it. Will I sell enough prints to quite my commissioned work?
I recently listened to this 3-part podcast episode from Chris Do and The Futur, all about designing your life, choosing passion over profit, and doing the work to get there. It really resonated with me. While I love my commercial work, it's not something I want to do for the rest of my life. But I do want to make photography my life's purpose.
So, like a monkey, I'm holding on to one vine and aiming for the next. At some point, I'll let go of the old me and move forward with this new chapter in my career.
Thanks for being here and for your support.
