"Advice to new photographers? ….find your center…
Let’s face it…you’re a creative! But creatives can often find themselves with ‘starving artist’ syndrome. Somewhere in the middle, the balance thing becomes your quest – discovering your ‘artistic heart-light’ while also finding a path to fame and fortune. Pleasing clients and pleasing self is the delicate dance all artists face. In the end… “do what you love and the money will follow” can become your life with savvy business skills and a professional ‘personal’ style of imagery to back it all up….Live, Love, Laugh…you were put on this earth to leave a tender trail."
One of the very best presentation I've ever attended was with Arthur Rainville talking about creativity and nourishing your creative spirit at a program in Boston many years ago. I was hoping he'd give you the kind of advice he did above. Arthur is a kick to follow and it all starts with his Facebook page.
