A career as a professional photographer


Boys playing on a sea-saw in South Africa. This shot has been in my portfolio for a long time. It has won numerous awards and been in exhibitions all over the world. So now as I glance back over my shoulder at where I've come from it seems an opportune time to show it here.

EPUK has published a great article which ties in with my previous blog. The article asks ten top photographers, "What do you wish you'd known when you started out ?"

I wish I'd known that things are not always fair and that taking good images is not enough. I also wish I had known how kind and wonderful people are all over the world. It seems the less people have the more generous they are, and often happier. I also wish I had known that I didn't need to buy most of the cameras and lenses that are sitting in my studio. I would have saved a fortune.

I highly recommend reading this article.

Cheers,
Paul
