What a statement, “Don’t Be Afraid to Ask”. “Ask What?!”, You might ask. Well, that is the million dollar question. Whenever you have an obstacle in front of you, you need to stop being so stubborn and figuring it out for yourself, and stop being afraid to ask someone who has gone through it before.
This is more life advice than just photography advice. Even if it’s going to youtube, or a blog, it’s quite ok to ask for help and more importantly you don’t have to be afraid to ask for it.
I literally have asked other photographers, journalists, bloggers, and just friends and family, tons of questions on how to either get published, how to land jobs, or what should I do next.
You’d be surprised in how helpful people are. There is no competition on who can be the best artist or photographer. Any decent human wants their fellow photographers and artists to do great. To be seen. There is plenty of spotlight for everyone.
So, don’t be afraid to ask for help, to ask how to do something, or to ask how you’re doing. That ask, will go a long way.
