Coming to you from David Bergman with Adorama TV, this helpful video will give you four tips for landing more jobs as a photographer. Of the tips, the two most salient for me over the years have been to be persistent and to have thick skin.

It is important to learn to not take these rejections personally and to continue to persevere. I recommend finding a trusted friend or mentor who can give you honest feedback on your work and to try to tune out the rest of the noise. Check out the video above for lots of helpful advice.
