What difficulties have you had during your photographic career?
I think a better question might be: when is a photography career never NOT difficult? In all honesty, my career has been a long string of failures. But because I’m either too stupid or too stubborn to give up, I just keep plodding along. And because I have a problem-solving nature I always try to figure out what went wrong with my failures so that I can turn them into successes the next time around. I think the hardest thing for me is going through failure after failure, trying to understand what went wrong, thinking you get it, trying your solution, and then having that fail as well. And you just have to keep on going. That is exhausting. Sometimes I just want to throw my hands up and say “enough is enough!” But when you work for yourself you can’t really take time to do nothing; you have to constantly keep pushing yourself, your photography, and your business to improve.
