Personality of a photographer?

I have always faced this question " What personality traits do photographers have" Beginners often keep asking this question like what makes the photographer different from other people, what kind of attitude he must carry on.   According to me, every photographer creates a different known space in the world of photography by adding his creatives, different thoughts, a different aspect etc.  "Photographers need to be artistic, meaningful communication through his photographs, original creative ideas and all he expresses his true expression. He is well able to influence others"  A few important things need to be followed by all the photographers. He need not be conventional. Must work in a professional manner and convince others with his creative photographs Must respect his photography kit and always keep maintaining the kit because sometimes your maintained kit also express your passion.  He must pursue a good character and behave nicely, professionally. He mus

It Takes Time, Photography

Like the Sun rises after a long-struggling night, A light spread where the darkness is available. The most important thing is that there are successes and achievements after a long hard work, 100% FOCUS like a crane,  alertness, learning, patience, experiments, understanding the facts, technical aspects, tools, endless knowledge, experience and above all  "The Opportunity and Support from the right people"

Here is spacial advice for those who have no patience, please never ever opt photography as a career, even if you are shooting as a hobbyist photographer then also patience is required. I wanna tell every photographer those are going to pick photography as a career, photography is not a two minutes job or noodles, camera sensor captures the image at a higher speed and at a less time but behind this quicky process, there are many years invested, lots of knowledge, patience, learning, experiment, creatives, correction, tools, post-processing and above all the strong willpower to capture the stunning shots. 

I have been asked a few questions most of the time while interacting with the beginner photographer, mentioning below and I am tired of answering
  1. How long it takes to be a master in photography
  2. How long I take to learn photography and start earning
  3. After learning photography, Hom much salary I may get If I find a job
  4. Is there any future in a photography
  5. Everybody has a mobile phone then who will hire a photographer to shoot professionally.
  6. Somebody told that there is too much hard work in a photography
  7. How much money required to invest in the photography business
  8. There is too much competition in a photography
  9. I can shoot but can't post-process
  10. How can I find clients
These are a few questions which always creates CONFUSIONS to the beginner photographer or something stops them to do better photography.  

Conclusion - In my humble opinion, there is no single professional field who has no struggle at all, which is easy-going, no investment involved (students invest their five years to get a professional degree and that degree too even does not promise any "SUCCESS") Businessman invest hell lot of money to generate good profit but they are also not always sure for the success. Doctors/engineers invest 5-7 years along with the huge amount of money to become the Doctor even this doctorate degree does not promise them to become successful Doctors. There is plenty of examples you can find near you where no success is guaranteed. NOW, WHAT TO DO?

In this case, we have only one thing called Attitude, An attitude to work hard, ready to learn, ready to experiment, patience, theoretical and practical knowledge, ready to work out of your comfort zone, learn from your mistakes and along with having a good will-power to achieve your dream. 

Please never ever allow negatives thought to come in your mind which stops you to become a better photographer because negatives thought will always stop you to do a better job in every profession. You must run from the negatives people too. Even never allow your failures to stop you because failure teaches you and shape you in a better professional person. Please choose your career wisely. I hope this article will work enough as an eye-opener for most of the people. Always remember this NO PAIN NO GAIN.

Keep experimenting and have a wonderful and happy photography life to you
