I Just Had To Say…(Written On My Lunch Yesterday)

Hey Peeps,

This year is almost finished, another one is beginning with new dreams, hopes and ambition. I don’t normally do this, but for some reason I feel the need to thank all of you. Some of you I really know personally, others I’ve only just met or chatted with online. I have worked with some, planned future projects and others I enjoy talking shop while having some yummy sushi(you know who you are;)).

The point is, is that I can guarantee that I wouldn’t be half the photographer that I am today if it weren’t for each and every one of you. Even the small things that may seem insignificant to you help shape my perspective and abilities towards my craft, business, friendships, family and all of these are integrated together to make up my life.

There is one single thing that ties you all together for me: you inspire. You inspire me in your own personal way(s). Whether it’s your work ethics, processing, lighting techniques or just how you make me think or laugh or love to eat sushi(okay, no more sushi talk). All of you are inspirations, none of you are unimportant, you make a difference in my life – more than you know, and I appreciate it immensely. I can only hope to do the same for all of you.

As I said earlier, I don’t normally do this, and I also don’t do NYR(New Year’s Resolutions), but the force is strong with this one and so I’m caving. PUSH. That’s it, push. Push everything, shoots, schedules, projects, ideas and concepts, travel and experience. No procrastination, even when it hurts to get off the couch. I haven’t really had a problem with this when it came to photography, but I did find that scheduling and planning always were put on the backburner for the most part. No more. You want to shoot? Let’s find a date. Got an idea? Let’s explore it and see where it goes. That means that if we’ve never worked together, but have talked about it in the past – you will hear from me soon. If not, msg me and we will get it done! No more BS, no more waiting to see, no more doing it later. Let’s go. PUSH.

I hope you all a wonderful New Year, a wonderful night and I hope you complete all the endeavours that are truly important to you, whether personal or professional this year(me too!).
