It's Sunday and as usual there's no telling where my head is going as I start writing this post. I don't know what got me thinking about it this morning, but the topic is the love we all share for the craft. Think about it for just a second - you're reading my blog so right off the bat, we share a passion for this industry. Then think about everybody you talked to this past week - there it is again - everybody shares that passion.
Next month I'll be in NY for PPE and surrounded by people with an unstoppable passion for imaging. They'll be there attending programs, meeting with vendors, looking for answers to the same questions a photographer just starting out would have...how can I grow my business? What do I need to learn next?
We're all part of an industry that never slows down, especially when it comes to education. Every day the paradigms shift and what was the standard yesterday is different today. It's all about passion: for the craft; for learning and for understanding every client's mindset in order to create images with an uncompromising level of quality.
"One of the things that may get in the way of people being lifelong learners is that they’re not in touch with their passion. If you’re passionate about what it is you do, then you’re going to be looking for everything you can to get better at it." Jack Canfield
Happy Sunday everybody - make it a great day and don't let anything get in the way of your passion!
