I wish someone had told me early on in my career to take the time to invest in myself. You don’t need that brand new lens or that shiny new gadget to be successful. You need to understand how to run a business, stay up on the latest social media trends, and understand how to market. Yes, you need to continue your photographic education as well. Understand how to work with people, light your subjects and so on.
This is so important that I’ve dedicated an entire episode to this topic. Take a listen here.
Let me know if you’ve taken any awesome workshops, of what you do to stay on top of what’s current. I would love to hear what works for you! I also wrote a previous blog post on a similar topic, and you can check out some of the educational opportunities right here.
