Photographers capture a moment, preserve a memory that will last forever. With the push of a button, the click of the camera, a blink of an eye, you either succeed in your job or you fail. In many cases, there are no do-overs. If you miss the shot, it is gone forever. That is what makes you a professional – you do not miss the picture of a lifetime. It is sharp, vivid, and perfectly framed. Photography is an art form. You create a style of your own, a way of taking pictures that is distinctively yours. You leave an imprint on every photograph you take. Your work stands on its own, speaks for itself. The lens becomes an extension of your eye. Few careers offer the opportunity to bring such a measure of individuality to a job. What you see through that camera lens is exclusively yours. Those who pick up a camera for a living have to be committed; they have to be driven. The dedication to produce a great photo can never leave you. It takes much more than a casual interest to succeed as a professional photographer, and your passion has to be reflected in your work.
