  1. so inspiring, thank you. I'm currently in the first year of running my photo & video business and I am already finding out about struggles 'doing it alone' but none the less, I keep trying and keep getting new clients, and new opportunities and slowly but surely I am making my money. It's taken me a year of solid work to be able to reduce my day job hours to just part time hours. The goal is to ditch my part time job completely and only do what I love.

  2. Thank you for this video. I start going to school for Digital Cinematography in October. I've started late in life. I'm 36 now and will be 39 when I graduate. I have a very good government job now with incredible benefits, but I'm not happy with it and I absolutely love film. Better late then never I like to say.

  3. I am Environmental Engineer. Now I'm paving my way to explore the engineering aerial videography market. The clients are not that wide and much but they are loyal, well organized, and have a strong financial. Do you guys think my step is good?

  4. I really enjoyed this. I am in the process of setting up a small production company ( just me first), in the UK, and this was really useful and positive for me. Thank you for all of the advice! Feel free to contact me! 🙂

  5. This is what I needed to keep pushing. I've always had a passion for this industry. From the first time on stage acting in my first play. (Romeo&Juliet).. I played Raul and Bethany Blakeley played Christine, such memories. I've done so many things as far as jobs. But I always come back to this. I finally said I'm putting me first for once in life. I've enrolled in school for video production gotta start somewhere right… This video was all my emotions in one.. Thank you I appreciate people like you keeps me humble…. Sorry for the rant, but like you stated in the video. Being passionate about something can be a all night conversation….
