My book, “Rockstar” is a call to action for Professional Photography to make the imposters more transparent. So many couples are getting burned by photographers who don’t deliver images. And even worse are unscrupulous photography seminar instructors who are just out to sell educational materials and workshops.
I’ve seen a video where this this woman named Janelle asks this “Rockstar” couple when she should just quit her job and go full time as a professional photographer. And, without looking at her experience, talent or skill – he says the most stupid, irresponsible thing I’ve seen in a long time. The pinhead says -
“DO IT NOW! “What’s the worst that can happen. Do you really think, Janelle, that you’ll really be on the street homeless?” And Janelle says, “My house might be foreclosed” and this buffoons says, “it’s not! It’s not going to happen!”
Folks, people who say things like this are just trying to look cool so they can get your money. They’re trying to sell educational materials and fill seats in workshops. So they prey on nervous people who don’t feel sure. And so what will happen is Janelle, and all of the Janelle’s out there watching are going to listen to that advice, “face their fears” and go into business. And things like this happen to trusting people like Janelle… here is the sad story of Heather Peachee, aspiring professional photographer.
