San Diego Photography by Be Still Photog: Ernie Padaon | Fiona Padaon
This morning, I opened up a post from Chase Jarvis that he originally posted a few years ago, but he tweeted it out again today.
The simple tweet read "This is the most important part"
THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART! It is all about the love of photography. We know that the business part of photography is hard and takes up a lot of time. but the love of photography is what keeps us rolling. I could go out and just take photos on any day. It is my love!
If I didn't have to worry about paying off houses and putting food on the table, I could shoot a wedding without getting paid. I often tell my friends that book us for weddings that they don't need to worry about us having fun during their wedding day because we will be doing things that we love during the day. We love being able to capture the day for our friends since we know their personalities well and we would be able to capture their day even better because of that.
The business part is what makes the photography portion a job. That is how we have to pay the bills at the end of the day, but the love of photography is what makes it worth it.
