Quote from: Cindy on September 04, 2016, 01:40:57 AMI've been a member here since 2005, but I rarely have time to visit. I got an email alert with this question. This is something I've been thinking a lot about lately so I thought I'd answer. I have been working as a full time photojournalist for a USA Today network newspaper for 16 years. My biggest challenge is confidence. It doesn't seem to matter if I get a front page, full page photo or a magazine cover, I struggle with a confidence issue. At 52, I feel like I'm winding down my full-time career and this is by far my biggest regret. I'm not sure this can be taught but it sure would be a piece of advice I'd give! Be confident and if this is something you struggle with, never go to work for a publishing company as a staff photographer.

My challenge is getting permission from the owners (many of whom you can't find). I will always live and die so to speak on my own merits or skills. Just getting the correct POV (point of view) is critical at times.

Quote from: LaughingPeppers on October 31, 2016, 10:34:02 PMThis is quite an interesting question. The biggest challenge I have and the only thing I can think of is the lack of funds to go to beautiful remote places that I often see in National Geographic Magazine.
