While many aspiring photographers work for a long time to reach their goals, it's often the journey to get there that is the most interesting story of all. This short video from Vertical Online reveals a thoughtful and inspirational tale of one landscape photographer's experiences from going broke to making amazing images.
Marty Knapp reveals in the narration, "I maxed out my credit cards. I spent all my money on buying either a lens, a camera, photographic paper chemicals. When I got married I was immensely in debt, but my work was starting to sell."
What do you think of this choice? His work is fantastic, and clearly his immersion into creating his art is shown in his work... but would you spend all your money on gear to self start your career? Was this choice more appropriate for the decade in which Marty made it? Share your thoughts below!
