Just come across another few inspirational videos.
This is a series by Smugmug on YouTube designed to do exactly that i.e. inspire.
I prefer this one:
But from the Von Wong video I like the quote :
“I think if you start doing the stuff that you love, and you start sharing the stuff that you love, then sooner or later people will start hiring you to do the stuff that you love”
Both on this blog and in person I’ve been thinking and discussing personal projects a lot. As you may have seen – my last blog post I’ve started along the path of doing a personal project myself, the first that I can truly call a “project”.
Part of this also ties into my admiration for freelancers – having never gone it out alone I find the whole prospect rather daunting – not that I’m thinking about it seriously – but it is a consideration from time to time. E.g. A Retoucher friend, Hazel Nelson, has recently gone freelance. If you need any work done – go ask her.
So when I happened across this video just now it struck a chord – it shows someone wanting to move to doing different work but in the same industry and how he went about it – with passion – and investing time in it. If you really have the passion for it and want to do something it’s worth giving it a damn good go. Thought I’d post the video to share.
