- Learning skills and utilizing talents other than camera operation is as equally important to your career path.
For me diving and mountaineering are life long hobbies that I have successfully applied to this art. Also become
comfortable with being uncomfortable. In the documentary world living and working conditions can become very
challenging. Being zen when everything around you is difficult will lead to a successful outcome.
