Huh. According to Timehop (an app I have a love/hate relationship with, because… man… memories can be wonderful or brutal) five years ago, I did my first paid photo gig. I’ve certainly come a long way since then! And I still have a long way to go.
I strive not to live life with regrets, but to instead look at mistakes as lessons learned. But I could certainly say I do regret not giving my photography more attention over the last five years. I would be so much further along if I had. But, to look at it as a lesson, I won’t drag my feet another five years.
That being said, I’ve spent much of the last week deep in thought on ways to advance my goals as a photographer without compromising other passions, such as this blog and other business interests. In the weeks to come, I do plan to make some changes, and I absolutely can’t wait to see this happen and to share it with all of you.
In the mean time, my Project 365 for 2017 is well underway! And as if it were a sign to keep moving forward, the Nashvillest is back up and running. This blog featured some of my photos well before I considered photography as anything more than a hobby. Their support really helped give me confidence… so go give them some love as well.
