What are your recommendations for starting photographers?
Shoot what you’re passionate about and always make the photography first. Focus on creating your art and don’t try to jump into creating a business first thing. In fact, for many people trying to go into photography full time is not a good idea. You get to do the thing you love less because you’re so focused on building the business. And you take this thing you love and turn it into something that stresses you out. Depending on your personality it can be worth it, and for me I don’t regret making the decision. But there are definitely days when I think about how much simpler and less stressful my life would be had I stayed in engineering.
