Although we didn’t reach our goal, the Unknown Photographer Kickstarter project was a huge success! It’s an incredible feeling to have a big dream and put it out into the universe! It’s even more astonishing to have friends who support that dream. How cool is it to have raised the money we did? YOU PEOPLE ARE AWESOME! We want to thank all of you for believing in the Unknown Photographer project! The fact that you were willing to be part of it just shows us that we should stop at nothing to make it happen.
So what if there are obstacles? Aren’t there always? Sometimes you have to be careful because when the obstacles arise, the self-doubt creeps in. When self-doubt becomes the loudest voice in your head you just have to get LOUDER! Obstacles are a chance for us to regroup. They help us look at things from a different perspective. The path towards our goals isn't a straight easy freeway. It's more like a trail in the woods. It always twists and turns. Just because we aren’t going straight doesn’t mean we aren’t moving forward.
You have to be flexible with your dreams! Sometimes they are in disguise. Part of being successful in this life is knowing that we may end up going in a different direction than we first thought. The path you’re on may lead you somewhere unexpected and your dream may look completely different than you imagined.
We believe in the Unknown Photographer and we’re going to stay on this road wherever it ends up leading us. Our original idea may change a little depending on the funds we raise and the response we get from all of YOU! We thought we were going international for a year but because of the overwhelming response from photographers in the US, we’ve decided to revamp the show a little and spend some time here. We're still going global! Check out all the details about our plans for Season 2 on the UnknownPhotographer.net FAQ.
Is this a big crazy idea? Yes! You people are just as crazy as we are and we love you for it! Thanks again to everyone who donated their hard earned cash towards our Kickstarter project! Thanks to everyone who has supported us with their tweets, posts and shares. THANK YOU!
I'm going to keep following my dream of traveling the world, connecting with the people in it and photographing it all!
