Yes, I know I keep posting photos from Hobart, but I’m sorry, I’m so darn proud of the photos I produced.
I’m also incredibly proud of where I have come in such a short time, I started my business over a year ago and never expected it to be so successful in such a short time. But it’s hasn’t all been smooth sailing.
Before the workshop I was having major doubts about my work and I was falling out of love with photography. I wasn’t photographing for me, I was getting anxiety and stressed and it wasn’t fun anymore. This was really hard for me to deal with after years of studying photography and spending all my spare time learning and understanding my camera and perfecting my style.
I never expected starting a small business would be easy but I didn’t expect to fall out of love with the one thing that I have been obsessed with since I was 8.
The creative industry is tough, you work so hard, have sleepless nights, spend hours and hours in post, work for peanuts and collaborate all to make a name for yourself and to gain a tiny bit of recognition in the creative community. And sometimes you don’t get the recognition you deserve and your emotions take a massive beating.
That’s where I stood before Hobart. I lost my spark, felt flat and alone and I so desperately wanted to get my mojo back. With the help of two incredible people I was able to gain back my love for photography, my love for my camera and my love for food. Im feeling better than ever about my business, my work and my future goals and ambitions. @ewenbell
put things into perspective for me and helped me gain back what I truly love and why I have chosen to do this. Their support has been overwhelming and I thank them both from the bottom of my heart for that.
A big shout out to my incredible clients, my gorgeous friends and family for always supporting me and picking me up when I was down. Life is one crazy journey and I wouldn’t change any of it. I know I’m good at what I do and I do LOVE it and I aspire to get better and better each day!! Watch this space to see where my photography journey takes me!! Thanks for listening and big love to you all xx
