Success in life usually comes from a combination of things. Usually those attributes are hard work, knowledge (of your craft or industry), determination, dedication, and scarficie just to name a few. But what most won't tell you is that it takes support and the right people backing you and believing in you. Teamwork! Is the missing ingredient!
Photography takes team work from you as the model, to the MUA, hairstylist, clothing designer and the photographer if everyone is not on the same page working towards the same objective all the hard work can be for nothing.
If this is truly what you love then I say to you take it seriously and let your actions speak that as well. Practice, exercise, eat right, practice, practice, practice. The thing about opportunities is that they are not wasted they just go to the people who are better prepared. I want you to be ready when that opportunity does come knocking.
