Photography is not only about taking beautiful images. Photography is about emotions. Make your viewer feel the image and you'll most likely have a successful shot.
I've given (and received) more hugs than I can count.
I've had long chats on Messenger with people, not always about photography, that I have yet to meet thanks to my photography.
People have told me that they looked at one of my photograph for several minutes.
I've had people thanking me for a photograph I took that reminded them of a special place they used to go to with their better half, who has now passed away.
More importantly, I love seeing the big smile on people's faces pretty much each time I deliver a print.
I'm nowhere close to making this company financially viable (but things seem to be moving in the right direction) but the personal reward I've been getting by impacting people's lives is already making it all worth it.
