I DEEPLY despise this feeling of inadequacy that I’m suffering through now. I want to be a web developer. I NEED to be a practicing, professional photographer. THAT is my gift. As much as I truly love what I’ve taught myself, what I’ve learned, and how I continue to help businesses succeed, I know my Soul will never rest unless I’m making memorable photos every single day.
One of my darkest days on this journey of entrepreneurship was when I sold my Nikon D750 when money was super tight. That was 2017. Since then, I’ve shot some film with my Canon AE-1 Program and gotten by with an iPhone 5s that was on its last leg. Getting the iPhone 11 Pro when it came out was like a godsend at the time, but it still isn’t the same for me. In this age, a proper digital camera is the only route that makes sense for me. I’ve put that calling off to take care of my family first, but I think it’s time to put myself first very soon…
