good lah.. should support anybody with this sort of endeavour. The difficulty is not just in succeeding there, but also to leave everything behind and start from scratch elsewhere... think this sort of spirit is commendable..

so wish him all the best! ;)

I'm very curious to know what does a person do when he reaches NY? I mean in terms of photography? Join a studio? Start one from scratch in an unfamiliar place?

I truly admire and salute people who have what it takes and dares to make such a bold move. The spirit of entrepreneurship is hard to find these days. True enough that success is not guaranteed. But I've always believe that not trying means 0% in success and 100% guarantee in failure.

Some people say it is easier for a Photographer from Singapore making it in New York than a photographer from New York making it in Singpore.

Don't know true or not?
Yeah, I've always thought this could be the case, but no one to seek advice from on this issue. Saw a professional 10 mth course offered in a prestigious photography school in NY. Not cheap considering the standard of living there. Too bad no kakis there or else can ask more.

Don't be afraid to think big.

If you are young, you have time on your side.
Being mature and mddle age can also be seen as an asset. When I was young, could not even think about life goals :bsmilie: and was far less of a business minded individual. Hence, maturity and enthusiasm would count a lot too. It all comes down to willing to make sacrifices.

Do your groundwork before departure. A lot could be achieved through emails, link to your on-line portfolio and research on overseas clients through internet.
