A good attitude adjustment

I felt like I got some good life advice and attitude advice from this book, but maybe not as much realistic applicable career advice as I was expecting. I felt like most of the book was vague and nonspecific. I think this book would be most beneficial for potential pro photographers who maybe need help with their personal insight, but as someone who already overthinks things and has a lot of natural personal insight I don't feel like I got as much out of the book as I

I choose neither the path of the Freelancer nor the Signature Photographer. Money or fame is not my motivation. I'm more of a hobbyist. I take pictures as my chosen form of artistic expression (mainly because I can't sculpt, paint, or draw with s***). While the fortune or renown that may stem from a full-blown or side-bar career in photography sounds appealing, I still think it's nice to get some sort of laudatory notice once in while.

Anyway, I picked out Fast Track Photographer in a public libr

The budding professional photographer has a library of photography-related topics available in book form: technical ("Understanding Exposure"), business ("Best Business Practices for Photographers"), inspiration (name your favorite photographer coffee book), and now motivational ("Fast Track Photographer").

Honestly, if you've ever been to a photography workshop or seminar, you soon find that they are more about motivatio
I found most of the worth in this book being in the pdna test and the recommendation to take a strengths test. The problem is that I've read so many books and watched so many videos at this point that advice saying "be yourself, be awesome!" all kind of blends together. Worst, I found that on the pdna test, I am almost 100% medium in everything, which left me with a lot of ambiguity reading the rest of the book. I'm already on the Signature Boutique path as it is, so I'll have to work to change ...more

Pretty good wisdom in this book. Not just for photography but for any business. It won't teach you anything new but bring out the things you have been aware but ignorant to the fore and urge you to take action. The latter part of the book is especially too engrossing.
not too shabby - he tells it like it is and his advice is sound.

i hate books where you have to take a quiz online which also costs additional money (at least, it did in my case since i got this from the library). even though i didn't take the quiz or join the forum, i felt like i got a lot of good information from the book.
Quick read! Some good points! The test he offers is a bit of a scam and you should read this book knowing it probably won't download! The whole book is designed for people with no business or life experience! Still worth reading but not life changing by any means !!
