Failure is absolutely required.
Communicate often and honestly.
In order to success, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.
Sharon Montrose & Clare Vivier
You've got to tell a story.
Creativity is not anarchy. It is a tool.
The question I get the most often is how do you become a working photographer. I don't know.
Side projects allow you to say no to bad work or work you don't want to do.
Start with desire.
I view creativity as the ability to take existing ideas, to merge them together in a new way.
There's pretty much nothing I've done right before doing it wrong first.
Find something you enjoy because it really brings happiness.
Do everything before you're ready.
My personal work really helped me reconnect to that feeling of photography being new and fresh.
Think by doing.
Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith.
Attitudes are caught, not taught.
You're the one who shapes the kind of designer you want to be.
Jason Santa Maria
I think that working photographers really benefit from doing personal work.
Design is, in fact, the technology of art.
I have this ability to make shit happen.
Don't start with the local immediate thing around you, start with the vision of where you want to go. Set the ambition at the outset.
It's important to know your strengths and when you need to get the help you need.
We as designers tend to produce things as a way of thinking through them.
When I get to the end of my life, I'm not going to say I wish I made more money or sold more prints, I'm going to hope I lived life the way I wanted to live it.
When looking for funding, don't just look for cash. Look for the right people.
