Ahhhh this is such a FUN day!! A while back we got an email that was a TOTAL pinch me moment! Profoto was compiling a list of some of the World’s Best Photographers who use their lights….and they wanted to include US on it!! What the WHAT?!!
We can still totally remember the days of trying to rig up a one light set up on the fly at a wedding with two sync cords because we couldn’t afford pocket wizards, let alone amazing lights like the Profoto B1 & B2. We felt worlds away from where we wanted to be and to be honest just very small in our business, and there were so many days when it felt like we would never get un-stuck.
I wish I could go back and talk to those two crazy kids who were just starting out with this dream for just a day. I would tell them that they have NO idea the crazy amazing things that are ahead. I would tell them that there will be tough, frustration & fight for it days when you find yourself down on your face, those days when you want to give up….but there will be so many more “fist-pump the sky, I can’t believe that just happened, how is this real life” days too. I would tell them to just. keep. going. To figure out where it is that they’re trying to go and never, ever stop running towards it. Because you don’t have to figure out all the steps to get there…you just have to be willing to keep taking the next one.
And that’s what I hope for ALL of us today. Keep going. Keep running.
You have NO idea the crazy amazing things that are ahead.
