yesterday I  have started a project with the readers of my magazine. I have asked all photographers to answer a single question:

What is the single most important thing you have done that made you a better and/or more successful photographer? (In max 50 words). (http://www.fastmediamagazine.com/?p=2006)

Responses are coming in quite rapidly and I will organise and publish them for everyone to look at. It would be great to get the microstock perspective here as well.

Thanks, I hope you enjoy the answers and the ideas

Here are some of the responses:

Put my camera down while photographing a deadly accident

There was a key moment at the beginning of my transition from assisting to shooting for myself where I was at a party with lots of ad folks and I decided to take myself seriously, and I presented myself that
way. I got my first ad gig from those connections.

Continuing Education - the more I can learn from my fellow photographers on an on-going basis the better I become

I stopped listening to advice from other photographers in this industry who kept saying how successful they were, and then I went and found the one's who actually were successful and listened to them.

You were probably spending all day in conference calls, watching webinars, reading their blogs and attending conferences.  Not for free, of course! :)
