For an aspiring creative entrepreneur, a lot has been said on whether one should follow his/her passion or profit to have a successful business. Being a creative who is passionate about his/her craft, one may lose sight of his/her true value and sacrifice the profit side of the business. Then again, there are other people who may argue that in order to succeed in business, one must stick to where the money is—the profit, but focusing solely on this may unknowingly compromise the quality of his/her craft.
For David McCammon, a professional photographer and author of the cutting edge book, Image Power: Balancing Passion and Profit in Business, a perfect balance between what you are passionate about and never losing sight of your value as an artist is the key, which he shared in Today’s Honoree.
Today’s Honoree is a partnership between L.J. Holloway and Derrick “Headlines” Hayes that gives both a chance to give back to others by featuring and recognizing the works of others.
A passionate, professional photographer, and a believer of ongoing photography business opportunities, David remarked, “When starting out as photographers, creatives, we’re often shy about charging for our services. In doing what we love, we can lose sight of our value as photographers, but I am here to tell you that you can do it!”
Thus, in his book, Image Power, David McCammon shared his unique perspective, gained from over thirty years of work in the photography industry to explore one’s potential and find that perfect balance between passion and profit in business.

Today’s Honoree is a partnership between L.J. Holloway and Derrick “Headlines” Hayes that gives both a chance to give back to others. L.J. and Derrick met on the Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage in 2008 and kept in touch saying that one day they would work together. L.J. called Derrick one day asking him to do some PR for her and immediately Derrick was inspired by the concept of Today’s Honoree as a way they both could make a difference in the lives of others.
