I'VE BEEN SLEEPING SO STRANGE AT NIGHT/WITH A HEAD FULL OF PESTICIDE
worked through lunch because I was behind on pretty much everything. bought a samwich & baby carrots to eat later. got myself caught up on everything! ran five blocks to catch the bus. dodged dudes loitering on the corner yelling ‘wassup beautiful’. made it to the bus just in time. forgot my samwich in the fridge at work. one thousand sighs
Anonymous said: Do you think its possible to live off a creative career if you're only good at photography?
I can’t answer that honestly because it depends on a lot of factors. are you capable of running a business? you’d have to market your services, send bills & invoices, go to events & trade shows to talk to potential clients, set up a website, etc etc. I know a lot of people who have tried and failed at it.
those who are successful work primarily with senior portraits and wedding photos, so you’d have to decide if you would be willing to do a lot of less creative work in order to make a paycheck.
I don’t want to discourage you! photography is fascinating & it’s so much fun, I wanted to be a professional photographer for a while, but in the end I decided I like it better as a hobby
