8 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Photography | Part One
EP04. When I started my photography career I made the jump from hobby photographer to fulltime photographer within a year. After working with psychology and running a successful coaching business for more than a decade, this was a scary decision to make back then. But at the same time, I had this artistic side in me that felt somehow neglected. When I finally got my first camera something inside of me instantly clicked and I was hooked and the urge to pursue photography became so consuming I couldn´t ignore it.
For a while, I was doing therapy sessions during the day, and then I took pictures in the evenings and on weekends. In the end, I was running two full-time jobs and I knew I had to choose because doing both was too much and I needed more time with my family. So I chose photography, and I jumped. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It was all learning by doing and I made so many mistakes along the way. And I´m going to share some of them with you today - raw and real....so I hope you are ready!
If I'd only known the things I know now, my first few years as a photographer would have been much more productive and much less frustrating. However, my frustrations and my mistakes are your gain!
