Photography business is a highly competitive market. We are up against each other, and trying to outdo ourselves or others. I have always wanted to do a better job with my photographs. A lot of learning, lots trying, constant marketing, studio management, and so on. Then life gets carried away. I get lost in the giantic goals. I recently moved away from Spokane about 40 minutes into the country. I just want to go back to the most simple life style possible. One day, I was asking myself why everyone tries harder at what they do as a career than trying to make their life better. To to enjoy sitting in the warm sun, a cup of cool ice tea, listening to a French love song, smelling the fresh cut grass, a gentle touch of someone you love, and the inspiration of your kids running though the sunflower field. If we all compete in this manner, our photography will be better because our lives are better.
