I have learned that change is good. I think sometimes I’m scared of changing because of the labels I have, because I don’t think I can go so far, and because people have already categorized me on a certain talent level. But to me, that isn’t the right way to think.
We can all grow into more than we can imagine, we are constantly changing, learning new likes new dislikes and finding new systems that work for us. We should be able to share and rejoice in those changes with friends and family, and we can break out of categories that people have put us in because we are made to do great things.
Yuliya M. came to Monterey for a wedding and we were able to spend some time together. She took photos of me, and we talked for hours about photography and where we’d like to be in the near future. I am excited to work with other photographers in the industry who are ready to change, grow, and move on to better opportunities. In a field where it is easy to be alone, I am looking forward to going through new ventures together.
