    "Forget selling silver prints, do weddings"

    Good advice, which thankfully I ignored

    Another response to the "just shoot one camera, one lens, one film" - if that were true, you'd be able to completely dis-assemble and re-assemble your car with just a 1/4" socket wrench, or build a house with just a screwdriver. Different tools for different tasks.

    Well, I used to own a Morris Minor car. You could do almost everything with a 7/16" and a 1/2" spanner.

    Never compromise on quality and consistency.

    Well, I never could pass up a good deal, so I had my fair share of grief in coming to grips with the whole system of having a perfectly tuned machine of paper/developer and film/developer. Instead I just ended up not understanding how it all hangs together for a good long time, and it wasn't until I looked beyond Ralph's 'magic bullets' that I felt like I finally understood this medium and could truly apply myself without much compromise.

    Stop drinking. Don't go to grad school. They'll never fund that. If only to save embarrassment, ditch film.

    My father's reaction to the arrival of my COD order from B&H in the Summer of 1983 when I was 16, a Kiron 80-200mm F4.5 for my FM2:

    "Why are you spending money on that? Save up for a car or something useful, every boy and his dog wants to be a photographer, hell, I even did"....

    The lens was $89 shipped, I would go on to make thousands with the images I made with it in the Navy in my late teens and early 20's before I got serious Nikon glass like the 180mm 2.8 ED....I was too busy photographing and traveling the world on the U.S.S Ranger to buy a car, I did not get one until I was 21....:-)
