When you’re a photographer, or even just a creative person in general, there are so many things that can happen — both expected and unexpected, big and small — that end up having a huge-wild-amazing impact on the course of your life. For me, one of those life-defining moments came to me in the form of my very first portfolio review.

I have kind of a big question for you: What would you say if I told you that you could literally start making money in your sleep with photographs you took a year ago? And no, I do not mean selling your gorgeous prints to your family and Instagram followers (which, to be honest, is a totally legit thing to do as well). Now, before you start thinking, “Wow, Nicole, you’ve totally lost your marbles,” let me explain. It’s easy to get stuck in the mindset of photography being a sort of “time-for-money” business model, but if you do it right, the money doesn’t stop when the shoot ends. So, now you’re probably thinking to yourself, “Wow, yes, Nicole, sign me up, where do I start.” And I’m here to tell you exactly how to get signed on with an agency and make your work work for you.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about community and the impact it can have on our quality of life (especially in the creative field of photography, and especially during a time of such heavy isolation like we’re living through right now). Over the past few months, I’ve realized just how much this community has helped me… As Horizon Found has grown and changed, I too have grown and changed. Connecting with people in this community has literally kept me going during those really heavy moments—and today I just really, really want you to know how much you mean to me. Really…I could NOT do any of this without you! Every time I start thinking more deeply about what community means to me, I always come back to the same thing: understanding.

I have something I really want to share with you all. A few weeks ago, I kind of lost it. I had one of those deep, heart-wrenching breakdowns that you hesitate to talk about out loud, but that hurt like hell. And the thing was, while I was trying to talk myself through it, find my motivation, and use all the different self-care tips that my 10,000 self help books have given me, I just couldn’t figure out what was wrong.

When it comes to getting started as a photographer, the ever-growing list of “must-haves” and “must-dos” can feel overwhelming. Somehow you’re supposed to have the perfect camera (and, uhm, know exactly how to use it), have all the right gear, have all the connections, and — of course — have the skills and experience to put it all together. But the problem is, none of those things really MAKE you a photographer.
