On Gratitude

We’re barely half way into 2016 and it has been a remarkable year so far.

I tend to work in isolation, even when close to home. Hours alone in the car, and usually alone on deserted beaches and fields, and while I sometimes miss the company, I enjoy the peace and time to think.

And even though I spend most of my time working on my own, I am not doing all this on my own. I couldn’t do what I do without support.

I am so very thankful – not only for my awesome clients and customers – but for the army of people who support me every single day. It takes a village, people, to make an artist. My friends, family and fellow photographers are my cheerleaders and my critics, my sounding boards, and quite often, my (physical and emotional) caretakers.

And on the days where I’m shooting through dinner, or feeling like an imposter, or barely able to walk after a 10 hour event, someone always has my back.

So thank you, all of you. I couldn’t be me without you.
