with Kristy St
Some people think failure is not an option … so they don’t even try. The fear of failure stops many people in their tracks, rendering them immobile, which ultimately keeps them from succeeding. Entering images for review and photographic competition may seem like a daunting task for those who have never tried it. Unfortunately, many people are too afraid to attempt it. For those who do, it sets them on a path that leads to improved skills, more earning capacity, and better recognition through branding and marketing purposes. It’s not about winning. It’s about getting better at the craft. It’s one of the best educational tools available in the photography industry. During this live webinar, Kristy Steeves, a PPA-approved juror, will share her non-merited images with us and explain how each one helped her grow into the photographer she is today. Kristy’s goal is to inspire and motivate you to reach your potential through a perspective shift. Did you know that failure is not the opposite of success? It is PART of success! Let’s embrace failure as part of our photographic journey. It is the catalyst for learning, growing, and succeeding!
