The Videographers Hierarchy of Needs – Where are you?

Around every New Year I like to take inventory of my career path.  I always seem to refer to Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs pyramid for guidance.  If you are not familiar with this study and you are too lazy to click through then you should know that Maslow conducted a landmark study that describes the stages of growth in humans. It is most identified with the pyramid he created to represent his findings.

I thought it would be fun to create a ”Videographer’s Pyramid” that would better represent those of us working in New Media but more specifically in the videography profession.  From the basic “Deficiency Needs” that form a solid foundation, to the higher “Being Needs”, where you build your self/brand image, where do you think you fall?  Have a look and feel free to give some feedback via our Facebook page.

As it turns out I am still focusing on the “Safety” needs.  I hope that sometime during the course of this year I can shift to the “Love & Belonging” needs.  God knows I need friends : (
