In 2017 I picked up a camera.
I was moving to a new place and starting a new job. I just wanted to do something that would keep me busy during the weekend.
Fast forward to six months later, I had a lot of fun shooting portraits.
It has been an incredible experience meeting new people thru photography, especially when I am traveling. So few thousand pictures and 30+ shoots later I am still going strong.
In 2018 I want to start a new challenge.
I want to make 1 million dollars with photography... $1 at the time. Let me explain. Basically I plan to explore different ways of making money with photography (making at least $1 per experiment), and keep going until I reach 1 million dollars.
Personally I am not a big fan of gigs. Weddings and events can be wonderful, but they are just not my thing. So my plan is to find alternative ways of generating revenue with photography, especially portraits. I do hope one day I can let go of all the financial burdens and just enjoy the world with photography. It is a crazy and stupid idea that would most likely take me the rest of my life to achieve, or even not achieve. Exactly the way I like it. I will try my best to keep shooting during the weekends or whenever I can and share my journey on the internet like typical social media obsessed millennial. In this first post, I am just going to share some of my favorite photos from last year. Please stay tuned for the infrequent updates.
Love, peace and whatever your favorite word is. (mine is shit btw)
