AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER -- Justin Mott studied photojournalism at San Francisco State University where he learned a lot about the technical side of photography, ethics, work ethics and storytelling. What he didn’t learn much about was the business the side of things. However, he knew in his second year of college that he wanted to be professional photographer, but had no clue how to make that happen. “The industry is constantly changing and universities can only teach you so much. The challenging part isn’t becoming a pro, the hard part is having the confidence to make the leap and make it work,” Mott explains.
