JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 04.14.18
A few years ago now, I sat in a NJ diner with a noted photographer. We were heading to a shoot in Asbury Park, but since he was from out of town, I wanted to give him a good “New Jersey” experience.
So on the way down to AP, we stopped at one of my favorite diners and had a quick bite. Still remember he had a BBQ burger that turned kind of messy.
Anyway, at one point, he looked over at me said “What do you want to do with photography?”
I knew what he was asking then….how far did I want to pursue my “hobby”. Did I want to continue to develop my eye and get better and be an advanced amateur? Did I want to start to get commissioned work, i.e. get hired by someone to shoot what they want me to shoot. Did I want to freelance? Did I want to sell my photos (stock or otherwise)?
I really didn’t know to answer. I don’t even know that he wanted an answer, just give me something to think about.
All these years later….I’m still not sure I know. I don’t know if my goal/endgame/focus has been determined.
So…having a little crisis of faith this week.
More to come…
