Simple, stop chasing the dollars and do what you love. That is when the money will come if you really want it too. Enjoy your art for the art that it is and never forget why you picked up a camera in the first place. Look at your old portfolio from time to time and revisit some of those sessions. You may be surprised at what you have learned as well as what you have forgotten. Sometimes we need to return to our roots in order to grow.
