Community over Competition

Community over competition is a popular phrase but what does it actually look like? For me it means that I’m happy to be an open book. I can answer questions and provide direction with the common goal of both becoming better photographers. Below there are answers to common questions from photographers, as well as some links to things I’ve found helpful. I’m part of every group I recommend and have used every product I suggest. Shoot me an email with anything that your curious about or think I could help with. nate@natemeedsphoto.com
