Since starting f.64 Elite and coaching other photographers about their artistic vision, I have discovered something incredible. All it takes is permission to pursue your vision, and you actually start doing it. Why is that so profound?
Our whole lives leading up to adulthood and beyond, we are taught to put aside our hobbies and pursue "real careers." Our hobbies get looked down upon by others and are looked at as childhood playthings. All for the sake of work... work... work.
I get it. Work is essential. You must pay the bill, right? But why are our hobbies looked down upon?
In this last session of the Vision Summit, I will share three truths with you. These are things I want you to start believing RIGHT NOW. I will give you the permission you need to begin pursuing your artistic vision.
