01/13/07: "The Myth of Talent" by Craig M. Tanner

Craig Tanner is an amazing photographer based out of Atlanta, Georgia. I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Craig when I volunteered at a Rocky Mountain School of Photography workshop several years ago.

Craig recently wrote an amazing article called "The Myth of Talent." I highly recommend reading this to all photographers who ever found themselves inspired by the work of others, and / or frustrated confused at their own work. In "The Myth of Talent," Craig shares his "big break" experience that set him on the path to becoming the great photographer and lecturer that he is today. Click here to download (pdf file) "The Myth of Talent." In the article Craig shares "Seven Ways to Create Your Own Artistic Growth"... (more detail on each is in the article)
  1. Breathe
  2. Set Goals
  3. Model on Others
  4. Reflect
  5. Recharge
  6. Create an Artistic Support Group
  7. Be Your Own Biggest Supporter
Be sure to read the entire article for great inspiration and advice! For more information about Craig and the projects / lectures he is involved in, click here to go to his website.

Thanks Craig for allowing me to share your inspiration with Daily Photo Tips readers -- you rock!!
