We are one month into 2020 and it’s time to ask yourself: what have I been able to accomplish? Hopefully, you’ve been on a roll this year, but if not, we still have amazing suggestions that will kick your photography business into full swing.
In this PetaPixel article, Clare Harding will teach you what to remember when starting a photography business. With any start-up business, everyone’s experience will be different, but it can still be helpful to take in other people’s advice.
Harding’s first nugget of wisdom is to remember that comparison is the thief of joy. This is incredibly true because if you’re constantly comparing other people’s work to your own, then you will start to feel as though you are not good enough. Spoiler alert: You are good enough. Instead of allowing other people’s work to make you feel inferior, Harding recommends that you channel that energy into remembering why you fell in love with photography in the first place.
