I recently heard somewhere that if you are forced to swim in piranha infested waters, stay calm, don’t splash about, and most of all try not to bleed for goodness sake. One of the most difficult things to do when a career in photography falls under social or financial pressure is to stay calm and focused on making it safely to the other side with your message and branding intact. We all have to find ways to safely navigate the dark waters of the day but should try our best to remain calm and focused. Otherwise, when you do make it to the bank –bedraggled and tired– you will forget why you worked so hard to cross over in the first place.
