I was able to assist in shooting a wedding with probably one of my very favorite photographers… i have admired his work since I started taking pictures, and also the fact that he is only a couple years older than me and runs a $120,000+ a year business. So, basically it was a dream come true, and a validation of my work, which doubtful me is always so in need of. Well, after taking pictures with all of his equipment, which would be any photographers dream, and showing them to him, he said I was one of the best assistants he has had! Crazy!!!
That was when I realized that I could do this. I really could be successful. I could have a career in this.
I also realized that I enjoy it…. I know that sounds strange, but I really haven’t been enjoying my job lately… But I think it is because a) i haven’t had the right tools and b) i’m not passionate or enthused about it anymore.
So i want to work harder, I want to invest more.
I am excited at what the Lord is going to do through this :)
