Sometimes it takes a bit of inventiveness and a lot of practice to overcome certain obstacles, but a passionate photographer is willing to get involved in order to succeed in their job. If this is true for those who have made (or want to make) a career in photography, it is even more true for those who nowadays use social media to have a maximum visibility in the world.
