As the starting song of Supernatural plays in the background, “Carry on my wayward son” for all those Supernatural fans; you all know what I’m talking about, the road has been long and exhausting one thus far. Shoots after shoots, no finances gained, just a strong desire and focus to create self-foundation.
There are difficult days, I must say, trying to make it out here as a photographer. It seems as though I’m not seeing my way and I often wonder why am I still trying. The struggles I experienced from having minimum cash for transport to PC’s failing and crashing, oh and my smartphone screen also decided to give out. Some may think I’m stubborn or won’t take a hint, I’d admit the thoughts travel through my mind as well, but I refuse to give up on my dreams of travel photography. It’s my passion.
I will carry on, it has not and will not fade in vain. Thus far, I’ve met people within the tourism industry, right at home, Trinidad. I must say I am getting a hang of how things work, what to look for and how to operate. Information is key along with power once you know how to play your cards right. I’ve traveled to places I never even knew existed.
I’ve been on numerous amazing adventures, met exceptional people and island experiences. My photography skills are increasingly growing as well.
So I guess it isn’t that bad after all. I have been told by persons in the industry to find something unique that makes me stand out from the rest. I’m still trying to find that niche but I think I’m getting somewhere.
I’m not going to give up on my dream. Opportunities are everywhere. I will find a foothold in the field of photography.
Small and powerful advice…to the people out there pursuing their life goals, aims or aspirations… don’t give up, keep pushing through. It takes a weak soul to give up! Don’t be that weak soul! Be dedicated….be strong…and surely your desired achievements will be attained.
