New Year’s Resolutions – #1: Take More Risks

In the interests of actually blogging something for once (and notwithstanding the fact that, as another photographic appointment, 2012 will be the year in which blogs die in favour of social media pages), I’m going to start posting my resolutions for 2012 here. Why? Well, for one thing, it means that I actually wrote them down somewhere. For another, it helps keep me honest. Well, in theory, anyway.

So, resolution number 1, then:

Take More Risks

2011 has been an amazing year. I’ve been busier than ever as a photographer, and although I’m nowhere near being able to make a living on this alone I know now that I’m capable of working at this as a professional.

But I’m still not taking enough risks. By which I mean that I shy away from doing things that would be cool and fun for entirely specious reasons. Not asking if I can use a location because I’m certain I’ll be told no is a classic example. I should just ask anyway, but getting to the point where I’m willing to do so takes far too long.

So, for 2012, take more risks. Stop worrying about what people think or say; GOYAJFDI
