I told my mom about the whole conversation and we got to talking about success and how I would know I was a successful photographer. I started thinking about it... I'm not really sure. I guess that's my real problem. I don't know how to define success in terms of photography. I'm not sure how I would even know that I made it.
How do you define success? Do you have to make x number of dollars? Sell x number of items? Book x number of shoots? Do you have to have your work published? This doesn't just apply to photography it can apply to any profession.
I'm trying to figure out how success is defined for me. Once I do I think I will be on the right path to my goal of "Success" (whatever that is)
