10 things I wish I knew before I became a photographer

When I first became a photographer I had no idea what I was doing. When I first started learning how to photograph it was tons of trial and error. I was just hoping that I could find a way to make a living off of doing what I loved. As I’ve grown in my craft and in my business I’ve advanced in my photography skills and in my knowledge about the business. As I continue on with my journey I wanted to share with you 10 things I’ve learned and wish I would’ve known when I became a photographer paired with a few fun gifs.
