I like to think I am not competitive, but once when I shared that feeling with a friend she glanced over at her boyfriend with a smirk and smugly laughed. Well anyway, I have embraced the identity and now I am methodically paying the dues for competitions this year. My reps have been pushing me to do this for years. One I recently entered is the PDN Faces Contest. If you are a portrait photographer, go for it. I have learned something that has taken this hard head to finally accept is you have to pay your dues for recognition. What that dues is is up to you, but it is necessary. Things rarely fall in your lap. One must "dig their ditch". Recognition and the need for or necessity of it will be a topic another day.
