Brian Smith Talks About Making Your Own Photo Breaks

I can't tell you how many photographers I encounter think being successful has to do with being at the right place at the right time. Sure a bit of luck on your side always helps, but if you are looking to quit your day job to become a professional photographer, increase your photography income over last year's earnings, or catapult your career as one of the industry leaders then you need to work hard and work smart. The guys over at Photoshelter sat down with professional photographer Brian Smith to talk about what it takes to push your career to the next level. You simply can't wait for your big break, you need to create them.

That was a really good listen.

One of the things I found interesting was that he was a trend setter, not a trend follower. If there is one camera more despised than the Pentax it would have to be the Sony, but he sure gets good looking shots with it. Then he shows us a NEX 5 with a Lensbaby - ya jus' gotta love it!

Wow.. Thanks for sharing the post Patrick.

Good stuff
