Thank you...so kind.
I started with sports at university to help offset the costs...photography is/was expensive. Especially in the film, photo chemicals, photo paper, etc. days. To get money to buy film I would take team photos, action shots and head shots of each player of the various sports teams on campus. I practically gave away the prints cheap but I earned enough to keep me rolling in film, paper and darkroom chemicals.
So to make a long story short...where there is a will there is a way...you'll find yours I'm sure :hug:

such powerful words.. i surely hope one day i will understand what i'm best at and go with that.. 

I haven't sold anything from what i have did 'cause i don't know my value and i'm never 100% happy of anything ... I don't know if this applies to sports images... but when composing from scratch,if not having all the right information and skills designs fall behind.. 

Thank you for the kind words... they surely give me strength to carry on and self-appreciate my work ..
