Back Where It Started
Fifteen years ago, I joined the Dallas Professional Photographers Association. I didn’t really know anyone there and was just learning the ropes of photography. I knew so little, that I didn’t realize how far I had to go – if that makes sense.
In hindsight, it turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made. I eventually joined the Board of Directors, met several life-long friends, and even served a year as president of the organization.
Last night, I was asked to give the keynote speech at their Holiday Party. It was quite an honor to stand up in front of a group of such talented photographers and give them my two cents on life in the photography world. I hope that I left them with a little bit of inspiration to launch them into an awesome 2014.
Thought To Take Away
I ended my talk with a quote from the great Dr. Seuss- and I think they are words that all photographers should live by:
“If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good.”
