Ok, so I was talking to someone who I used to consider a 'mentor' now I just find him to be more of a pain in the ass; and his photography isn't what I initially thought it was (see, I am learning ... ) So I am trying to market myself as a "portrait" photographer and I feel that under that 'umbrella term' the categories include: engagement, weddings, pregnancy, infants, children and families. When he looked at my site and saw the areas I was marketing he said to me, "You need to pick like two of these things and master them, or you will only be mediocre at all of them. You should come shoot a wedding with me so I can turn you into a REAL photographer." Now, I understand the logic behind his statement; but, am I spreading myself too thin? Am I taking on too much, or am I right on point with the areas that I am looking at and it's just HIS short comings that don't allow him to excel in multiple areas? As for the second part of his comment about making me a "real" photographer it pissed me off due to the fact that I am still trying to battle my "self-doubt" issues that I feel are weighing me down (personal battle, I don't expect anyone here to be able to help with that). So, is this guy just being an ass and trying to bring me down, or am I ok with what I am doing? Thanks for any feedback you might have.
