-AInvest in training. I don't only mean technical training to level up product photography skills which is also important but also in yourself-Meditate, Be inspired, Read, Read and Read more.
Only in this way you will be connected with your mind and soul , they both will be aligned and you will be certain about which path you must follow.
For improving technically in product photography, I did many, quite a lot courses actually in Domestika: one of the best is the one from Weekend creative and the best I have done is from Amanda Campeau " Become a brand photographer" -Amanda is absolutely amazing and by accessing to her course you belong to a community where you raise question and build connections.
If I have to recommend a book-" A New Earth: Awakening to your life's purpose from Eckhart Tolle" is the book to have on your stand night and you always have to keep reading, it is the bible for me! And I would also add "how to Ikigai" to find your life purpose.
Would love to hear if you have read them or what your recommendations are.
