I’m the kind of person who has often had my fingers dipped in many different pies (excuse that horrible saying). Despite all of these hobbies or five-minute wonders, I’ve never truly found my calling in life.
To be honest, it’s not a new revolution. It’s one I’ve been sitting on for some time now and sometimes I do it without even realising it. It wasn’t until literally all of the important people in my life recently told me this is what I should be doing. Wow – really? I hadn’t ever realised that this could be my calling in life.
I LOVE taking photos. My camera roll of 26,033 will back me up on that fact. It’s something I do without fail at least twenty times a day, and if I go a day without whipping out my phone or camera to snap a memory, then that’s when you know something is wrong.
My dad is my hero, my inspiration and the man I have to thank for my love of photography. He is an AMAZING photographer and has always supported me in my passion to follow in his footsteps. Throughout my degree, he invested in me so much, helping me to achieve any goal I set myself, which included creating fantastic photographs for my dissertation magazine. I also have him to thank for capturing all of my memories growing up. I remember talking with friends as I grew up and hearing that their parent’s barely had a handful of photos of them as a baby. If you dug through my mam and dad’s loft you’d probably find at least 50 boxes full and that’s not counting the thousands of digital images of my life housed on my dad’s computer.
I want this and more for Archie. I aim to capture every single moment of his life, whether it be big or small and if I can do the same for other families too then that would be amazing.
So, I’ve decided to pursue what I should have probably done a long time ago. And I mean with a model like I have in Archie, I have the perfect test subject to work with!
Stay tuned for more updates on my photography journey!
