When I started photography 3 years ago, I never thought it would be this hard. I mean forget about having friends or even taking the morning off to go out and enjoy the sunshine. Sure there are slower time where you would think that I would have time to sit back and enjoy life a little but when these slow times happen, it's the perfect opportunity to catch up on updates, social media, blog and think about creating more work. And before I know it, I am submerged into a cloud of work including photoshoot, editing, office work, creative work to showcase who I really am and I can barely see the light at the end of the tunnel. There is also all the pressure: personal pressure of wanting client to be happy but also timeline and working with everyones needs, while keeping the priority at the top. Then there is the creative pressure, with so many other great photographers and competition out there sometime it's hard to know where I stand. More often that you think, I ask myself if it really worth putting myself through this and leaving behind an important part of my life which is "enjoying life". The answer somehow always appears in front of me when I finish a long and big project and realized how rewarding it is to see a idea that I had in mind for months come alive and how nice it is to be able to do what I love for a living.
Here is my latest creative photoshoot that once more put me in the shadow but allow me to come out stronger at the end!
