Instructor Insights: Finding Your Sheer Photo Joy with Doug Menuez

To build a satisfying creative life in photography it's important to figure out how to get paid to shoot what you truly love to shoot. Otherwise it's a path to burn out. Aside from a killer portfolio that represents what your true vision is about, you have to support that vision with a proper business structure. Not easy, but in my workshop we solve these fundamental issues and provide concrete steps to reach your goals.

Here's a small thing I learned that turned out to be an extremely powerful tool: learn to say NO.
Start saying no to anything that makes you ill and that you really don't want to shoot. This is risky and can mean lost income, but the upside is sheer happiness and getting on your true path to the light... to artistic and financial success. No risk, no reward!
