Head in Sand

At my day job, I sit in my office turning out invoices, statements, work on payroll, create spreadsheets, etc.  I love working alone………

My mind never stops working.  I have been diagnosed with ADD (or ADHD depending who you talk to).  You would never notice on the outside – I am not hyper… but my brain sure is.  I cannot turn it off.  I’m constantly taking in everything around me and analyzing or filing it into boxes in order to understand it all.

I observe the photography industry.  Lately, however, one little thing has been glaring at me….

I honestly cannot believe how many photographers are teaching and telling other photographers to put their heads in the sand.

“Don’t worry yourself over what others are doing.  Worry about yourself.” 

Are you kidding me?  Ask Coca Cola if they think about their competition.  ABSOLUTELY they do.  If their competition just purchased some major ad space during the Superbowl, you better believe it will come up in the conference room later that week.  (READ MORE HERE)

(I didn’t have an ostrich photo – but I did manage to find this image of an emu that I photographed in Australia while teaching photographers ;))
