Practice practice practice.
Go on workshops. Invest in yourself. Learn, practice, experiment, f*** up, learn from that, practice, learn. Go on more workshops. Try what you learned for real. F*** up, learn more, practice, practice, practice.
That was me last year.
2013 - converting garage into studio to practice more, understand light and posing people better. Going on at least 2 more workshops. Practice, practice, practice.
I also have a few personal projects, nothing to do with what I shoot day-to-day. Something totally different. Also getting a few photographers to shoot me, just to learn what its like from the other side of the camera.
Good luck, it's way more work than I thought it would be 2 years ago, still a gazillion things to learn, inspired everyday by others on here. Keep positive, surround yourself with other positive peeps, keep humble.
Enjoy the journey
