Life Ambitions

I’ve got a couple of days off of work, and I’m sat here on my own after taking the kids to school… soon to pick them up, and I got thinking… Where do I want to be in 5 years, 10 years, 20 years.


Raise your ambition

I’ve been content on furthering my career as a wedding photographer and working on my personal projects. Today I have been going through one of my Magnum photo books ‘Home’ and it hit me… I’m going to aim high to become a magnum photographer! Go ahead and laugh your trousers off, but i think you need to set a high ambition to work towards. I love documenting life, so it made complete sense to set this as one of my targets and to be featured in one of their books in the future!

I’m perfectly aware that there are going to be many steps on the road for me to take, and I’m willing and able to do this. As great as the destination will be, the journey is where we learn.

The book mentioned above I have most likely mentioned before, but it resonates with me dearly as, I have been working on my ‘Home’ project for going on 8 years. No one will have an interest in my family/home life but I think a lot of people will be able to relate in one way or another. I might make a small limited run of zines and see how people react?


Set Your Bar High

What are your ambitions? Where do you want to be and what do you want to achieve? Think about this and aim higher!

Leave a comment or send me an email, I’d love to hear from you!

Cheers!



Street Photography in New Places

Hey guys!

I wanted to write this post on why I think travelling for street photography is a good thing to do. Last weekend I headed up to Henley-On-Thames to shoot some street photography with a friend.

It was my first time visiting and Henley, and a great visit it was! By chance the sun came out and made the day all the better. Henley is a beautiful little town, has a great deal of History and was a lovely place to shoot.


When I go to a new place to shoot, I always find a huge amount of inspiration from the new surroundings… I shoot in Windsor frequently and after a while, it gets boring and I more often or not feel uninspired to raise my camera. That’s not to say there aren’t interesting things to shoot, but having the inspiration and want to shoot really plays a part.

New places open your eyes to new pictures, scenes and people…. Mind goes in to overdrive and the camera is clicking the whole time there.


If you have the chance to travel to a new City, Town or village… Do it! You might see how a new location inspires you to shoot more!

Cheers!
