I’ve had setbacks like every other person, The two major setbacks being Academic and financial setbacks. While in school, it was very hard to balance my studies with my photography I gave in totally to photography because I was more interested in it, I read photography books and saw a lot of online tutorials and tips and I did all this when I was meant to be studying school work.While financially, photography is an expensive hobby and it’s taken a lot of sacrifices to get gear for my work, I once sold my phone to get lights Lol.
