Olivier Duong has written an article titled “the shocking truth about what it takes to succeed in photography“. His point-of-view may seem slanted, but it matches my experience in other industries. It’s sad to see that business acumen is more important that one’s craft. Those I know who professionally work in an arts field are very business oriented. The ones who are the happiest in their work tend to do just enough business development and marketing to keep a comfortable level of revenue coming in. Myself, I would love to understand just how to get this balance right.
