Photography is a profession fueled by passion and creativity. Both attributes work and walk together, side by side to achieve maximum result.
The thing here is, one can do without the other but if you want to attain the height of heights and soar well above the crowd and reach the level where the legends in the industry have settled, you need but feats to hold you and place on that pedestal ramp.
Having passion for the profession makes sure you deliver the best of services irrespective of the situation you find yourself. It guides you and subtly ensures that you stay true to a profession that is daily been picked up by unprofessional persons and money pursuers. Having passion is what gets you through the rough times, when everyone leaves and all seems unfitting, it’s your passion and love for the craft ‘if sufficient enough’ that pulls you through unto the other side, the side of plenty.
Creativity on the other hand put you as outstanding and differentials you from every other person. Constantly being able to develop new concepts and ideas to shoot will increase you client list and that invariably leads to more money in your pocket. Creativity produces breathtaking, stunning, spectacular images and in a competitive market, your level of creativity creates a benchmark that in turn begets the kind of clients that come for you.
Photography is a beautifully tasking profession, one that doesn’t exactly have a 9-5 schedule but it also ensures that after you’re gone, you live on through the wonderful stills that you’ve created, because you might be dead; but your pichood will live on.
