When I was just getting started in photography, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing.
No idea at all most days.
I used to spend hours reaching out to photographers I admired asking for small pieces of advice, like:
“How do I send an invoice?”
“What do I include in a proposal?”
“What’s a call sheet?”
I had no one with experience to ask for help, and since no one would respond, I dreamed of having a community to lean on.
I will never forget when a photographer I looked up to for the longest time (& still do) actually responded to one of my messages, she said to go after photography if it’s what I wanted, and to remember that learning the technical side of things was SO important. She said that I needed to learn from the experts if I really wanted to make it and that I should stop trying to teach myself.
That little response — from someone I can guarantee you has NO memory of it — changed the trajectory of my entire life because I did exactly what she said.
When we open ourselves up to community, to growth, to connection, something so small can change everything.
I know how lonely it feels in the beginning, I know how isolating it is when you don’t feel like you have anyone to lean on, and I know how hard it is when you don’t know the answers.
But, guess what? I also know how life changing it is when you don’t feel alone anymore, when you feel like you have people to lean on, and when you realize you it’s ok to ask for help.
I know, because I’ve seen it in my life
And as of today, I hope I can be a voice in your ear weekly that makes you feel less alone, that shows you you have someone to lean on, and that gives you the extra push you need to believe in yourself and take action.
