"My advice to a new photographer just starting out?
Vision… have vision… study vision… and become visionary… Photography is an imaging media and it is embedded unconditionally in vision. Start your vision at the point you want to be at, and in a season of time, bring your vision into focus deciding on the type of equipment, client, quality of work and bank account that your vision reveals to you.
Today it isn't enough to be a great photographer, wizard of light or an impressive Photoshop expert… You must develop a vision, your own vision, get truly excited about it and create a trail blazing path.
Photography is exciting because we deal with light in every aspect, it's rewarding when we create a composition that is wonderful, bring a smile or tear to someone or have someone tell you that your work has influenced their life, and can be a means for a good living, and for most of us, it is a life, it is a real love and it is all because of a vision…"
