NYIP Mentor and Industry Veteran Patrick Donahue, has studied the professional habits of the world’s most successful photographers.
The most successful photographers in the world are naturally optimistic. They have an uncanny ability to always see the glass as half full. When asked about the best work they have ever done, they’ll tell you it’s yet to come.
This characteristic is closely linked to their ability to overcome adversity when it strikes. When you feel like the best is yet to come, it’s easier to get over the obstacles that get in your way. A strong sense of optimism is key to being a successful photographer.
