Patience, perseverance, persistence

As I close this 10-week photography blogging special, I think it’s important to touch on the realities and challenges of becoming a photographer. While the process is long and exhausting, those who make it will also relish in the joys it brings to their lives: the new people and pets they get to meet and call friends, the fresh locations and places their camera takes them, and the ability to gain a new perspective on things we may not otherwise get to experience, and the opportunity to create special pieces of art or memorabilia for someone that will be forever cherished and valued.

It doesn’t matter if you photograph high school seniors, families, children, pets, weddings, or choose to be a photojournalist or commercial photographer, the road there will likely not be an easy one. There will be tall hills, deep valleys, and probably a few really unexpected turns that you’ll need to navigate cautiously. Most photographers have to juggle a full time day job while starting their business, but with persistence, patience, and perseverance, your dreams can turn into a reality, much like Philadelphia photographer April Zeigler’s has.

Take advantage of the many resources I have mentioned over the past few weeks, practice, educate yourself, practice some more, take the business aspect of photography seriously, practice even more, and over time, you will find success.

Check back next February for another 10-week blogging special!
