It Doesn't Matter - A Creative Talk

Nothing that I haven’t necessarily heard or read elsewhere but the following statement by commercial and editorial photographer Matthew Coughlin is certainly one that I have to continually remind myself of:

“Do share your work with the world, do use social media, put it out there but don’t get so consumed with the feedback right away and the amount of views and numbers that you’re getting because if you’re great at what you do…if you’re ideas are original and you’re passionate about what you do and you bust your behind working to develop your own style…you’re gonna develop a following and in the long run you’re gonna make it in your industry and you’re going to be successful and we need to stop consuming ourselves with views.”
