“Becoming a pro is a difficult and nearly impossible task. The photography market is ever changing and oversaturated. It can seem impenetrable. The path to becoming a pro is littered with broken dreams and ill-used expensive gear. There’s no use even trying, people may say to you; you might as well give up and resign yourself to living a dull life. While you’re at it, you should probably stop going outdoors, and please don’t celebrate your birthday with cake.
As for me, I will never live someone else’s drab and dreary life. My time on Earth is my own. And I will dream impossible dreams, I will love until it hurts, I will never give up, and come hell or high water, I will find a way.”
