I work every day. Some people consider me a workaholic. And, that's okay. Maybe I am.
It's because I love what I do. As a pharmacist, I get to make a difference in people's well-being. As a photographer, I get to capture the moments that remind us of how beautiful life is.
I am lucky. I get paid to do what I love every single day.
But, in the end, it's not about getting paid. Yes, money helps. But it is a means, not an end.
As Denzel Washington put it so eloquently, it does not matter how much money you have; what matters is how you use it to help others because we cannot take our wealth with us when we die and “you’ll never see a U-Haul behind a hearse.”
It's not about the money. It's about collaborating with models, make-up artists, stylists and other photographers to make incredible art. It's about It's It's about finding a cure for a disease that renders it's victims in chronic pain, that makes simple tasks like walking up and down stairs a virtual impossibility. It's about making the world a better place.
It's about capturing that money shot - the one photo that make the expenses, the effort, and the time it took to put together a shoot all worth it in the end.
All of us are given a measure of talent, ability and light. Let's all do our part to shine our light into the world and make the world a better place.
