Shadowing Blues Photographer

Turning Dreams into Reality by Shadowing a Blue’s Photographer 

By Isabelle Flener 

Have you ever found yourself captivated by someone’s work, yearning to be a part of their world? I recently had the exhilarating experience of turning such a wish into reality when I dared to dream big and took action. 

It all began with my fascination for the captivating world of Blues hockey photography. The raw emotion and storytelling captured in each frame spoke to me on a serious level. Instead of admiring from a distance, I decided to take the plunge and reach out to the photographer whose work had left an incredible mark on me. 

To my surprise, he not only received my inquiry but agreed to let me shadow him. The thought of immersing myself in the world I had so admired was both exhilarating and eye-opening. However, this extraordinary experience wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t gathered the courage to take the initiative. 

The lesson learned from this encounter is a simple yet powerful one—if you’re passionate about something, don’t let fear hold you back. Make your passion known, take the first step, and put yourself out there. It might involve the possibility of rejection or failure, but it is through these challenges that true growth occurs. 

Initiative is the key to unlocking doors that might otherwise remain closed. It’s about stepping out of your comfort zone and embracing the unknown. My journey into the world of Blues photography taught me that courage is the first step to creating change. 

So, if there’s a dream or passion burning within you, don’t let it simmer in the background. Take that initial stride, and who knows where your courage will lead you. The most remarkable journeys often begin with a single step, and yours could be the next inspiring story waiting to unfold. 

I dare you to dream big, take action, and watch as your dreams transform into a vibrant reality. 5
