Always Love What You Do

Photography is my passion, what's yours?

Always Love What You Do
Nigel Enoch

Everyone has something. Everyone has that one or two things that they not only excel at but love. For me, my something is photography. I love the limitless possibilities and the plethora of ways you can bring an idea to life. I love the fact that I can take a simple picture and have it be interpreted in thousands of ways. In a way, photography is a way to help people find out who they are. I could take a picture of a black box in a gray or white room, and each person would see it differently. It would have a different effect on each person simply because they perceive the reasoning behind it in their own way. I think that is absolutely amazing.

I do specialize in portrait photography, but that doesn't make the effect of perception any less powerful. I have plenty of styled shoot ideas and plenty of subjects to choose from. I love to take my friends or clients and bring their wildest dreams to life because in today's age, it's possible. It's possible to create a fairy princess, a badass post apocalyptic warrior or a smoking group of life guards out of thin air. It's possible to manifest and immortalize their dreams in pictures, and I love every bit of it.

What I'm trying to get at is that your age doesn't determine anything except if you can legally drink, drive or go to a club. The world we live in is so diverse and moving so rapidly that you can do anything you want. You can make your particular talent flourish and make money from it. You can teach yourself everything you know from the internet and be better than over half the the professionals around you. This world has limitless possibilities, and there should be no reason anyone isn't taking advantage of it.

I got a camera for Christmas one year, and now my wildest aspiration is to be a high-class fashion photographer. Is it impossible? No. Is it hard to get there? Yes. Will I go to school for it? No. I have taught myself so all I need to do is take a few classes just to say I've taken it and go from there. If you find your passion, don't give it up. People who do things with passion are much more successful than those who do not, so live your life. Live it to the fullest. Do what you love. Do who you love. Be someone that another version of you would be proud of.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
