When you work for yourself, it is easy to get stuck in your ways. There is no one to tell you how things should be done, be creative or to brain storm with. No one to say well done or to review your work, for good or bad. Things slide and unless you are proactive, your creativity comes to a halt.
After a fantastic first year of business, I was at that halt. I wasn’t sure where to go next. I hadn’t picked up my camera in weeks. I knew I wanted to create but I didn’t know what. I was scared to try in case I failed miserably.
Step in the stunning Stella, who came to visit me in Mallorca. She placed her trust in me and after a little bit of planning, we set out into the forest. When we arrived I still wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to create. But I wanted to express my own vulnerability. I wanted the resulting photos to look interesting and with a dark fairytale quality. Not just light and bright and beautiful. Although, to me, there is as much beauty in the dark as there is in the light.
Here are the results of that session. Thank you again to Stella. You are a beautiful soul, inside and out xxx
