That’s an interesting question. Since announcing the sale of “Phantom” for $6.5M there has been much discussion in the media. A lot of people congratulating Peter Lik for doing something extraordinary, others of course questioning the value of the sale. I have had the great pleasure of knowing Peter for many years, and like others who know him, this sale is no real surprise. He is a typical overnight success – 30 years as a photographer, taking many risks, both financially and physically, to become the best he can be.
I just wrote this article for Inc.com – where I define the key points behind Peter’s success. It is certainly not luck, it is hard work, courage and tenacity – mixed in with a sprinkling of crazy! Well done Peter. To read my Inc article click on the image below.
