It’s been another tough year for many photographers- if not financially, emotionally, and I want you to be proud that you made it this far.
As 2021 draws to a close I encourage you to wrap up your year by mind dumping all your successes, achievements and wins.
Take yourself off somewhere quiet and make a list of everything you started, finished, actioned, overcame, won, delivered, dealt with, and had fun with this year.
- Which new clients got in touch?
- Which old clients returned?
- What jobs did you shoot?
- Difficult briefs met?
- Personal projects ideated, shot and /or completed?
- New connections?
- New rep?
- Folio reviews?
- Finally committed to stop digi-tecching?
- An updated website?
- A better understanding of who you’re targeting?
- New moves?
- New babies/ grand-babies/ relationships?
- Family successes?
- Health goals met?
Try to get up to 50 if you can- it’s really empowering and will help you close off your year positively.
I did a longer version of this exercise with a group of photographers a few weeks ago and it was so brilliant to hear their success stories, challenges overcome and lessons learned. I think we all felt a little bit better for it!
So here’s to you and your successes and I look forward to staying in touch in 2022 with ways I can help you navigate the year.
It’s time to recognise how amazing you are, and have been this year.
