learning to take risks...

"It's all about learning to take risks. It's safest in the short term to work for someone else and let them take the risks for you, but long term, you're never going to get rich or famous working for someone else. Heck, when your employer loses the game, you all get fired anyway when he goes out of business, so why would anyone work for someone else? Laziness and fear, that's why, but that's another day's story."

Read the rest here.

It's OK :)

good photographers

Before I became a picture editor, I assumed that ‘good photographers’ took ‘good pictures’ because they had a special eye. What I found was that good photographers take good pictures because they take great pains to have good subjects in front of their cameras.

Your best photographs...

From Outdoor Photographer magazine (December 2011)

Focus. Simplicity. Courage. Best.

Focus It means saying no, not saying yes. We do very few things at Apple. We are $100bn in revenue with very few products. There are only so many grade A players. If you spread yourself out over too many things, none of them will be great.”
Simplicity Make complex things simple. A lot of people think it means take something simple and leave it at its core essence. But it isn’t that. When you start to build something, it quickly becomes really complex. But that is when a lot of people stop. If you really know your product and the problems, then you can take something that is complex and then make it simple.”
Courage ”Courage drives a lot of decisions in business. Don’t hang on to ideas from the past even if they have been successful for you. You don’t build a product just because everyone else has one. ”
Best ”If you can’t enter the market and try and be the best in it, don’t enter it. You need that differentiation. At Apple if we can’t be the best then we are not interested in it.”

If a man insisted always on being serious,
and never allowed
himself a bit of fun and relaxation,
he would go mad or become
unstable without knowing it.
- Herodotus

You can discover more about a person
in an hour of play than
in a year of conversation.

Who is in control?

1. Learn to say no when you need to but always follow up with a fair alternative.

2. Believe in the value of your work. If you don’t, no one else will either.

3. If you go in as the new/cheap alternative that’s often exactly where you will stay.

4. Know who you want to be. This is such a critical step that most new photographers are skipping. I did. Sit down, study, evaluate and determine what it is you want to accomplish.

5. Market yourself! Create a company image that’s worth a double take!

6. Sometimes you’re UP, sometimes you’re just not. If you’re stuck feeling low – find a way out! I know that’s so much easier said than done but you just can’t be productive when you’re down. It’s the fastest way to kill creativity.

7. This is your business. Don’t be a copycat, it’s the originals that last the test of time.

8. Grow. Always be looking for new ways to learn! What ever your education budget might be… use every penny. That may mean late fees at the library or workshops on the waterfront but it’s critical that you invest in your growth!

9. Give! You didn’t get where you are all by yourself. If your reading this blog I know that’s true! Don’t be afraid to share your services and your resources. When I’m on a low it’s the friends in the industry who always bring me up the quickest… And most of the time it’s you, yes you for leaving cheerful comments that lift me up!

Explore. Dream. Discover.

”Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn’t do than
by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines,
sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover.

- Mark Twain
