All creatives have the never-ending itch of making -- whether you're a photographer, a writer, an artist, a musician. Passion drives us, it's the primary fuel of our love for making. But we also all have that sickness of wanting to be validated. To have someone else compliment our works and see things the way we want them to see. It doesn't happen often, frankly, and usually, popularity costs our authenticity.
It's not a matter of selling-out or not, it's a matter of what feels right for you. Because if you're only trying something out for the sake of the likes and hearts on Facebook and Instagram, the real you will be buried by the expectations people have on you.
Photographer Sean Tucker addresses this issue in a little heart-to-heart.
