For myself, success is making a photograph that impresses yourself!

For me, the greatest success would be to make an image that is used in editorial or marketing, like on a billboard, magazine ad campaign, album/book cover, etc.. Not so much for the personal fame just because it may be archived and remembered by people all over the world.

Thanks Eric! Well somewhat, I sell stock images on several different apps and online right now. Hopefully one day I will become the best photographer I can be and produce images that meet my goals.

To make that one image, that one oh so special image that makes me say: “Holy Crap! Now that’s an image; didn’t know I had it in me!”

To me success in photography is the ability to carry your camera anywhere you go and constantly thinking about photography and making pictures that they will live forever. Yes I find it exhausting but it keeps me going and making better pictures by practising frequently.

For a commercial photographer, I think there is really only one metric for success: make your client happy.

For an artist, it’s about self-expression and making yourself happy.

 

For commoditized art photography, then its either highly skilled technics, creative methodology or an authentic story.

In my opinion, the success of a photographer lies in the following five elements – They see beauty in everything -They are creative people -They are usually nomads -They are independent and free -They are always ready to meet new friends
