I love photography. I hope that’s obvious by now! I’m also a real “go-getter;” If there is something I want, I go for it. As a photographer, there are endless opportunities available for continued learning and growth. Currently in the process of learning, I have begun setting personal goals for myself and I have also set-up expectations for my business. Separating the realistic goals from “the dream” goals, I have created a list of my top 5 items (in no particular order) which I will share with you now:
I’m really happy to say that I can officially cross off item #1 from my list above. I’ve always been a huge fan of Toronto’s critically acclaimed international wedding photographer, Joee Wong. I remember first meeting him at a friend’s wedding back in 2010. It was very brief, something like, “Hi Joee!!” and not much more.
Since meeting Joee in 2010, I have always planned to travel to Toronto to actually meet with him and talk about photography. So… after a couple years of following Joee’s blog, with the occasional email updating him on my progress, I finally decided to drive to Toronto for a weekend to have lunch with him. He was kind enough to share some of his knowledge and experience in the industry since he started his business about 10 years ago. Our conversation was so in depth that we had no idea three hours had passed! It was definately worth the journey! And to top it all off, I found this status update the following day when I returned home to Ottawa:
And so, I set myself a goal, which I successfully achieved. The quest to cross off more goals continues. Stay tuned for more great news!
