Intimidation vs. Inspiration

January 23, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Every morning I wake up and look around the internet for photographers work that I haven't seen yet. When I see good work I feel an emotion, when I see bad work I feel an emotion. When I see work on par with mine, I feel an emotion. There are times when I look at good work and the emotion that comes is intimidation; I think, how did they get there and how will I ever get there?


But more often I feel inspired and I strive for inspiration to be my first reaction to all good work that I see, recognizing my own capabilities in the process. I moved to Maui to go back to my roots, be with my family and learn how to look inward. I lived in Philadelphia for seven years, working hard everyday, feeling stimulated and inspired from the city and other outside sources. Rarely did I ever stop to look at myself and check in on where I was. I have spent the last three years doing just that. I value both experiences and know that everything in my life has led me to who I am today, therefore each experience has value in the now.

As this new year moves forward and I am pursuing my photography business full-time. I made a commitment to myself and my work that I will give it the time and space to grow. And I will strive to be inspired and to inspire by always checking in with myself to know that I am exactly where I want to be and doing all that I can to attain my goals.I challenge you to look where you are now and see yourself completely.
