Manny Rodriguez | Photographer

One of my favorite quotes is by a photographer by the name of Hans Neleman, “If there’s one thing I have learned, it’s just to work from the gut, your heart, to do whatever inspires you. The best thing is to not run after what everyone else is doing. It is doing what you feel is important. Finding a way to apply to commerce is not your job. That, somebody else will do.” This is something I have always taken to heart. Of course is tough when you are working for advertising agencies and corporations that expect a certain predictable result. But one still needs to push. Many times they listen to you and they accept. That can be very satisfying for the artist in the me. It really doesn’t matter what it is, if it’s been done before, or not. Just do it. Do it to satisfy your self. If you think this way you will become more demanding of yourself as a photographer and think more like an art director. Read more>>

I believe that in life, you have to have faith. So the quote that comes to mind and one that I remind myself of everyday is to “Take a Leap of Faith!” That can be so hard. For me personally, starting a new business was scary because of the unknowns and the “what if’s.” With the help of those around me who gave me the extra push, I was able to look past my fears and step into my purpose. Doubts, fears and unknowns can find there way inside and keep us from doing great things. You can’t let that happen. That’s when you have to make the decision that no matter how scary the situation may seem, it’s time to take that risk, believe in yourself and Leap. It may be new territory, something out of your element or comfort zone but trust me, “Take that Leap of Faith.” It’s worth it. You’re worth it. Read more>>

I love the mantra “be here now.” It’s a great reminder to be in the present moment and let worries and other life stressors go. It can be very easy to get lost in anxiety, especially right now with the pandemic. This can lead of us to missing the special moments that are right in front of us all. “Be here now” helps me stay focused in the here-and-now and on what’s most important in my life at any given moment.
