Love What You Do

November 16, 2009

Falling in love with photography is easy much like it is to fall in love with an idea, a cause, or a person. But, it’s the growing in love that makes those matters…well, matter. How many of you take the time to grow in your craft? I’m inquiring more on the side where you have such a deep appreciation for it that you want to share it?

We see it all over the photographer community online, on blogs, and on every social network. Some may say that it’s exposure for the photographer, a way for them to get hired. Others say that it’s a nice portfolio, a collection of images to get inspired by. They’re all right, but it points to something else. Photographers share their photos because it’s their pride and joy and if they’re passionate about it, then it’s a part of their identity. It’s a sign that they love what they do. So, go and hug a photographer…

I’m silly.

If you love what you do, then you’ll grow in your passion. The community of photographers is a great way to connect, get mentored, and to mature in your work. If you want to get started in this kind of relationship I’ve across some great places to find that. Please share, too, of other spots where you’ve received seeds of encouragement.

2. Meet-Up Groups
3. Open Source Photo
4. WPPI

I won’t leave this entry without including a photo. Below is my sister, Niña, withstanding the winds of snow along the Long Valley Caldera.
