The Cutthroat World of Landscape Photography — “I have known photographers who create FAKE accounts just to CRITICIZE other photographers or to BOOST their own work” – Jay Patel

My own experience:

I’ve sometimes spoken of the EXTREME JEALOUSY some photographers have of others. They can be full of hate as a result, and can wish evil on other photographers, what I call James-3 cursing. Because that’s what James says not to do in chapter 3 of this Bible book.

Part of this has to do with the “love of money” being the root of all evil. Competition in a field which involves making money can get doggy dog when people aren’t living in the Son, and don’t even try to love their neighbor as themselves — Jesus’ second greatest commandment.

This is from Jay Patel:

3 Wrong Reasons to pursue Landscape Photography

So the question is…why do you want to become a landscape photographer? If you do it for the wrong reason you are bound to be disillusioned and frustrated in this cut throat world of landscape photography. …

It is ALL about Likes, Tweets and +1s

Landscape photography is becoming highly competitive in this world of social media. Social media feeds on the LOOK AT ME! factor; this means that many landscape photographers are after as many tweets, likes, and +1s as they get on their favorite social media network.

Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now NO CONDEMNATION to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT”

I got this while preparing for a talk with Rick on Aug, 9,1990, regarding the founder:

“Our eyes are full of sawdust. We can’t see clearly to see the kingdom. There is might and there is power and there is glory, but it is being withheld until these relationships are made right, until we love our brother enough to feel his hurt deeply and say kind words of salve that heal their souls.

[___] can do this. This is vital. They are necessary. For he must do this for healing to occur. He is a man of integrity in many ways.

Fear must decrease. Love must increase. He will fight and he will win the battle over the stronghold of fear and unforgiveness, sayeth the Lord.”

My 1990 Key-to-Revival Prophecy: “There is MIGHT and there is POWER and there is GLORY, but it is being withheld until these relationships are made right, until we love our brother enough to…”

I like Eric’s attitude regarding competition:
