Hey man, love your photos ! I wanna ask you, do you live by taking photos ? I mean, i love photos and i wanna know if someone can live by taking photos like this.

Word up!  Thanks for digging what I do!   I do not make a living off of my photos.  I have a 9-5 and what ever I make off of print sales/shows Is icing on the cake.  It would be dope if I didn’t have the need for a 9-5.  I’d get so much more done in a day.   By all means someone can make a living off of photography..   I’m probably thee worst example of what most people would consider a “successful” photographer.  For others success is booking a gang of weddings and just caking off of that kind of work. There is a lot of loot in the wedding game.  It’s just not for me.  I like to pick and choose what projects to take on.  If something feels wack to me, I won’t fuck with it.   I’ve been shooting since 2003 and it took a minute for me to find my direction.  I’m very happy with my direction now.  I’m recognized amongst my peers & I am working with artists that I look up to.  To me success is doing what u love with out compromising the integrity of your craft.  

peace
