7. Lazy photographers are broke photographers – In order to make it as a commercial photographer in a city like NYC, you really need to work for it. Ever worse than a a lazy photographer is a lazy photographer who blames everyone but himself for why his career isn’t flourishing. If things aren’t going your way, keep you head up and keep on trucking. Telling everyone you know how bad things are and how desperate you are for work will only hurt you more. “Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy”. – Dale Carnegie.
