Who is in control?

1. Learn to say no when you need to but always follow up with a fair alternative.

2. Believe in the value of your work. If you don’t, no one else will either.

3. If you go in as the new/cheap alternative that’s often exactly where you will stay.

4. Know who you want to be. This is such a critical step that most new photographers are skipping. I did. Sit down, study, evaluate and determine what it is you want to accomplish.

5. Market yourself! Create a company image that’s worth a double take!

6. Sometimes you’re UP, sometimes you’re just not. If you’re stuck feeling low – find a way out! I know that’s so much easier said than done but you just can’t be productive when you’re down. It’s the fastest way to kill creativity.

7. This is your business. Don’t be a copycat, it’s the originals that last the test of time.

8. Grow. Always be looking for new ways to learn! What ever your education budget might be… use every penny. That may mean late fees at the library or workshops on the waterfront but it’s critical that you invest in your growth!

9. Give! You didn’t get where you are all by yourself. If your reading this blog I know that’s true! Don’t be afraid to share your services and your resources. When I’m on a low it’s the friends in the industry who always bring me up the quickest… And most of the time it’s you, yes you for leaving cheerful comments that lift me up!
