Shoot for the jobs you want not the one’s you’re getting

Came across another fairly inspirational video –┬áthe post title is a line from it.

Take a look.

Like the fact he treated and shot school sports teams like full on pros!

Personal work + the creative spark

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.
