Just a random thought: Are those self-doubts I am having a normal part of being a photographer or is it a piece of my personality?
I have been bragging about the recognition I was getting recently, achiever higher acceptance rates at the higher end agencies, having been selected as one of the “20 photographers to follow” on the EyeEm blog and being invited to hold presentations on Photokina.
Though, there are (lots of) times when I doubt myself. Not being good enough, not producing enough material, having to balancr short term work with long term efforts. Those come regularly when I’m being forced to look at my bank account as well, of course.
It is so hard to tell how good we are as there is no clear definition of “good”. There are a few brilliant people, some are excellent in photography, some are brilliant in marketing themselves. Those are just a few handul amongst millions of passionate photographers but those are the ones we admire and measure us against.
So… I am wondering how you feel about your work and yourself?
