Popular Photography recently interviewed me for a sponsored series of Photo Tips from NYIP mentors. There's also a terrific piece by Patrick Donehue on the "21 Habits of Successful Photographers". If you'd like to learn more about the common attributes found in many pros, I'd strongly encourage you to read it now and bookmark it for future reference. Finally, be sure to catch the interview with photographer Tim Pannell. His work will absolutely blow you away.
