How long does it take a person to learn photography? Can — or should — you make the jump from newbie to working professional professional in a heartbeat? That’s the question discussed in this insightful video by photographer Mike Browne.
Over the course of the 11-minute monologue, Browne shares thoughts and anecdotes about the process of growing in one’s photography skills and knowledge. You’ll need focus, perseverance, and to accept that failure is just part of the equation and something that you’ll share with some of the most well known “successful” people in the world.
While Browne’s advice is directed at photographers, it’ll be applicable and inspiring regardless of what you’re striving to become good at.
“We all have to take responsibility for what we do because cameras don’t take pictures — people take pictures,” Browne says.
