There is no other industry in the market that runs on endless passion, and talent of fashion photographers. An industry that understands hope and dreams, and sees them through. I have been asked nearly a hundred times that “why fashion”. And my answer has been simple each time; Because fashion photography is what gets me going each morning. It’s the juice that keeps me going, the passion and excitement inspire me to do more and achieve more. So when I wake up every morning I am pumped and ready to take on another day of great adventure and excitement.
It teaches you how to never give up, and keep on going until you break down the wall that stands between you and your dreams.
Yes, it is not an easy industry to survive in, but there is no other industry that is sitting with its arms open, waiting for you to join them and excel. As no matter which industry you pick you will be required to start from the bottom and make your way to the top. You simply cannot start from the top. However, to elaborate on why fashion, I would like to clarify that the fashion industry offers an appeal that is hard to resist. The glamorous lifestyle and the constant clock that is ticking over your head keeps you going, and pushing for more. It teaches you how to never give up, and keep on going until you break down the wall that stands between you and your dreams.
I did not always think that the fashion industry was my calling. But when I did figure it out, I didn’t waste a single moment. I keep on sharing my story with others in hope to inspire someone who wishes to join the fashion community but is too afraid to take the plunge. If you are looking for a reason why, and are unable to come up with one. Then try to think of reasons why you shouldn’t follow your dreams, and soon enough you will have your answer to the question “why fashion?”. Answering this question correctly is more important for you, than for others. As you will constantly have to remind yourself on “why fashion” as it will not be easy. But in the end, it will be worth it. So until that day comes, keep on reminding yourself, and others on why you have chosen the fashion industry.
Switching careers or starting out from the bottom is not an easy task. But when you have found your calling, there is nothing that should stand between you and your dreams. As the only reason why you are not following your dreams is you, and once you bring yourself to the other side, you will be able to get started in no time. So if you have the passion and dedication it takes to make it in the fashion industry then I suggest you jump in with both feet, as that is the only way the fashion industry works. It requires complete dedication, hard work, and love for fashion.
