Thanks for sharing that Jason, love what you said about models, cause i hear too many horror stories where photogs dont respect models and so true without them, we would be without jobs...
Very inspiring overall...

Hey Jason,

That is a great story.. I also messaged you to ask how you started out..
Im inspired the most because you had another job before you realised what you really wanted to do in life...

Im in the same position.. Been working as a designer for 5 yrs but now im realising more and more I really want to be a photographer.. I keep seeing landscapes and people who I want to shoot.. I just need to build up my confidence and shoot more...

Ive seen your website and a lot of your stuff published in FHM and ive said it before you stuff is fantastic.. Your hard work has paid off and good on you!!

As for shooting in RAW or JPG, that is personal perference.. I 100% shoot in raw, must be a design thing?? I find you can edit your pictures so much better in raw.. I love post processing..

Keep up the good stuff and im sure over the yrs you will just keep on getting bigger and better..

Goodluck :)

The key is to have a goal and not give up. I think the hardships make us more determined to succed, and the success more rewarding.

Excellent, excellent story! In many important ways similar to mine with Live Entertainment photography ... no formal training and lots of fortune and help from others but most of all working very hard to improve, taking no shortcuts and coming to grips with being assertive. So, while I am not yet full time (and likely won't be for six more years since my day job pays the mortgage and health insurance) I do make enough to buy a lot of excellent equipment. Of course, you are willing to do weddings and at the moment I am not! :-) Thanks for sharing this inspiration. :D

Excellent story. I feel like I went to a motivational workshop. You gave me a feeling there is hope. Although it is a long way from where you are. I am an MBA in working for a fortune 100 company, that would love to trade in my laptop, and make a living with the camera. Thanks for sharing.

Nice post. It's nice to see that there are pro's out there willing to share info, and not stuck up and hoarding all the info. I really respect you for that.
