Talent is not enough.
Not only do you need talent you need a good understanding of the business of photography and a strong work ethic.
Your talent is what distinguishes you from every other photographer out there.
A good understanding of the business of photography will help you make good decisions when it comes to pricing your time, services and photography.
A strong work ethic will enable you to put your nose to the grindstone so you do the day in and day out of the “job” of being a photographer.
