I think that Photography is something you have inside you, maybe you just havent discovered it yet.
For me i have enjoyed photography since i was a young kid, but havent pursued it until later in life.
After many years in the service industry in Hotels, Restaurants, Bars and Cruice Ships i ended up again on dry land. And a few years ago i finally decided it was time to get a new DSLR and get back into photography.
I love taking walks with my camera and try to discover new things to photograph, and keep learning. I am a firm believer that nobody will ever be perfect and know it all about photography. The day you think you know all there is to know about photography, that’s the day you should put your camera down and find a new hobby or line of work. You will not learn news things from that day on.
I love to learn new things from the models and people i work with in the shoots, everybody has a different story and experience that will be new to you.
So listen to it and take advantage of every moment.
One thing that really gives me joy is to see the reaction in a models face when they see how they look in the photography. “Is that really me” is one of the most usual responses.
A happy client that walks away with photographs that they truely treasure, is a wonderful feeling for me as the photographer.
