Are you balancing work that fills your bank account with work that fills your soul?
We’ve all made excuses.
“I’m too busy trying to finish projects for my clients.”
“I’m too exhausted to wake up a the crack of dawn to chase perfect light.”
“I’ve got to focus on work that pays the bills!”
Sure, there are plenty of good excuses. But the truth is: you can’t afford to avoid personal projects. Consider the risks. Without work that fuels your creativity and feeds your spirit, you’re sprinting down a path to boredom and burnout.
To explore the power of personal projects, The Photo Life is publishing a series of posts from photographers who have embraced risk and pursued long-term personal projects. The second post in the series is an enlightening Q & A with photographer Dave Wittig.
