Strongly considering a career change. I have failed to make a splash as a photographer, both in online communities like deviantART and in the professional realm. Images that I am proud of continue to go unnoticed, my business struggles, and image-based companies act like I don't exist. I am without income and struggling financially. It has been a fun ride, but I think it has been made very clear that I am simply not a good enough photographer, despite my passion for the art.
I am currently studying programming, while I search for an entry into the tech field. I find it highly enjoyable work, and who knows: maybe this will be something I can make a true career out of.
I want to thank everyone on deviantART who offered me guidance and friendship over the years, and I hope you will forgive my sporadic absences and account neglect. I will not shut my account down, but postings will continue to be extremely rare, as there really is no point for me to take the time to display artwork in a public forum that only serves to remind me of my artistic inadequacies.
I wish you all well, and maybe I'll see you around
