Developing a Photographer

Are you feeling stuck in your current career? Do you think that you would be happier doing something else? Do you have a passion for photography or another creative field and want to pursue it professionally? If so, you’re not alone. I have made a switch from technology and process consulting to photography, and while I still have a lot to learn and do, I already feel the impact this change has on me and my life. In this blog, I’ll share my stories and lessons learned, hoping to inspire and encourage you to release your inner creative self and pursue a new career of your dreams.

Photo Stories: High Noon in the Park

The time has come when I feel I am enough of a photographer that my experiences and lessons learned can be valuable to others. Inspired by the famous column in an aviation magazine, I’m starting this new series about stories behind some of my photographs. The first one is my favorite from the New York trip.

New York, New York!

“Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York…”

My New Year’s Resolution

I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, as it takes much more than a calendar change for us to start behaving differently. But, as I’m about to begin a new phase of my journey, I figured this new year was the right moment to change a habit. Why did I do it, what did I change, and how does it relate to this blog?

Being the Expert (on Instagram)

Why is Instagram my next big challenge to overcome? Why is my being “the expert” a part of the problem and how I decided to deal with it?

Where Was I?

My last article was almost two months ago, and my Instagram feed seems even less active. What is going on? Why wasn’t being “on vacation” more productive for my photography project than my everyday work routine? How does picking up an activity after a longer break feel, and why does it remind me of sailing?

What do you need to succeed? Why what works for one person might not work for the other? Why is it essential to be aware of your exact circumstances, strengths and weaknesses, and work with and around your constraints?

What Did I Do Wrong the First Time?

I already changed my career once, and it wasn’t a great success story. The business I started after leaving the corporation had a slow start. What was my biggest mistake, and why won’t I repeat it?

What’s in the Name?

Why the name of the blog? Even more so, the answer to the most frequently asked question by those who know me outside of photography.
