That’s the same way I think about photography. It’s the reason I’m doing this. Because it’s my passion. Follow what makes you happy. Do what you want to do. Don’t do it for other people or change your work because somebody says they like it better another way. Work with your own style and have as much fun as you possibly can.
As long as you’re following your passion you can never go wrong because if that turns into your business, then that’s going to be worth all the work you put into it. You must stay true to what you want to achieve and I think that’s the most important lesson.
Naomi: For landscape photographers… you have to be ok with stepping outside your comfort zone, in fact, you have to plan to be uncomfortable. Accept that fact and it will all be worth it.
If you really want to be good in photography, then you should go out and practice a lot; start learning how to shoot properly in good light and don’t forget that the most important things in landscape photography are light and composition.
What a joy it is to be published in a magazine, to be hung in a gallery and have someone buy your images.
I get so many ideas when I’m out walking because I am not thinking about emails, texting or anything that can distract me. When I walk I can actually think.
