I believe in order to do that, especially as someone working for themselves, it is imperative to hold myself accountable for learning and staying up-to-date. One step to this, for me, is reading. I've spent lots of time reading, which I love to do, and believe this is one way for me to continue to grow. Even better, I've found some resources that I have found helpful that include many visuals, which obviously is imperative to a photographer.
In one of the books I read this:
Being a photographer means reinventing yourself every day.
How true! This one sentence made me so happy. I think this may just be one of my favorite reasons for becoming a photographer! No two photo shoots or events or families are alike. How amazing! Every single day is a new experience and I absolutely love that.
