At the end of the day, you determine how far you go. Make it happen!
Here it is, my first Interview. I started with my friend Grace. She is a freelance photographer/Videographer. We went to Latitude 33 (I am definitely posting about this restaurant soon) for breakfast.
I asked her 6 questions, but if I missed something don’t hesitate in commenting below. I am sure she will be happy to tell you more! Hope you enjoy!
- Practice, practice, practice. Starting out I heard this all the time, I thought it was silly and that my work was just fine but slowly over time, the more I shot, the more I could see a big difference to some of my first photos. Practice will be the biggest defining line between you and an amateur.
- Make Friends! Find another photographer or another two or three photographers who have a similar style and who are in a similar price range to you and MAKE FRIENDS. Because a friend is more likely to reference a friend for a wedding than a stranger. Also having friends in the industry will catapult you much further than someone trying to do it all solo.
- Challenge Yourself! Its easy to become stagnant without goals. Set yourself 1 goal for the end of the year and work toward that. So if you need a new lens work toward getting in more work so you can buy it. Or if its to reach 2000 likes on Facebook set up compositions for people to like and share your page.

Grace is also my favourite photographer and if you like any of the photos posted in this blog so far – Make sure you check more of her work.
Hope you guys feel inspired and whatever your dream is, DO IT!
Thanks Grace for sharing your work with us.
