"Keys to Success" - Digital Photography Podcast 247

Over the last few months, I've had a lot of face time with photographers at all levels. And I've noticed that successful shooters often embrace what I call the "flexible mind." This week I take a few moments to share a few key factors that could influence your career, regardless if you're a photographer or not, in a positive way.

A really good and insightful episode about photography as a business, and not just about playing with new toys.

Thanks for this week's podcast, it's good to hear photography from a business perspective. I'm also looking forward to your MacBook Air mobile photography podcast.

I am really glad that you editorialized your feelings on these topics. You expressed truths for all aspects of our lives. It is so real life to suggest that we need to spend some of our time doing what we love but some of our time doing that which we might not love. I commend you for your emphasis on the importance of sharing with others. Not only will this generallly promote our own agenda, but it is the way to bring happiness and satisfaction into our lives. Lastly, thank you for your motivations in sharing with us. You not only have a great love for and enthusiasm for your work (photography, teaching photography, learning technology, nurturing relationships) but I know you do it with pure motives. You simply want us to learn and to enjoy through the medium of photography. You are clearly the least self-serving of all those I have been taught by in this great photographic realm.
Thank you from all of us who have benefited by your efforts.
