21 Dec How the Fuji X-Pro2 Resparked my Passion for Photography

Sometime before I started taking photos for a living as a commercial lifestyle photographer, I spent most of my time taking pictures of things for fun. During that period, I fell into a mind frame that if one lens was good, then a half-dozen or so lenses and a couple of bodies must be better. The more gear I had, I thought, the more prepared I was and the more prepared I was, thus the better photographer I would become. Needless to say, I was somewhat mistaken.

In 2014, after some years shooting for fun mixed in with a few paid jobs here and there, and a lot of hopeful dreaming, I decided I’d reached my “go/no-go” point. Without really any planning and not a lot of clients, I quit my day job and dedicated my time to becoming a successful, full-time photographer.

Admittedly, it was rough. During the time, when money got tight (and it got tight), I had the benefit of having an abundance of gear that I could part with for cash. By the end of my first year, with the majority of my gear sold off to survive, I realized that the necessity of having to pare down my setup was one of the best things that could have happened. In less than a year, I went from two camera bodies and seven lenses to one body and three lenses.
