… starting again, back to a beginning ?

And in these times of self-reflection and going inwards: wondering how we will start again – emerging into a new normal. I started to look back as to when I started out in the freelance world of self-employment.

And I came across this little video – which feels now -just as, if not more relevant then 7 years ago.

Back to the beginning ?

Well things have moved on and so have I, but a little giggle I thought I should share.

Trust I will be in touch through the digital medium of self promotions. Until I can do my thing in the real physical world, with you lovely lot – sharing the same space, making and doing things.

Stay tuned.

END OF YEAR … and into a new decade

I kept silent, not because there isn’t much to say – but because there is so much to tell. Gaining focus and formulating direction: to take my ambitions and skills forward, there is some exciting progress ahead.

A lot of baby steps have been taken to figure it all out – and things come to fruition!

Accumulating thoughts and nailing a few action steps, retreating on the beach and sun this winter. I am truly enthused to tackle what lies ahead!

Watch this space I will update you on progress in #production #filmmaking #artdepartment #photography

For now wishing you a good start into the new year and decade.

Stay tuned and keep moving … forward đŸ˜‰

People and pictures

With Photography as a second leg to my freelance ambitions ( yes I am much more intrigued  by and busy with doing things away from the camera – creating and making things happen) The assignments as Photographer becoming few and far in between.

When I do these photography jobs, they are pretty special and very enjoyable. As it is with this theatre production run I am currently assigned to as Photographer.

It reminded me of all the things, that I do like about photography; getting to know the people as an integral part ( appreciated and introduced) to the production. Meeting the cast, crew and musicians on their first get together and having an albeit brief but poignant 1-2-1 to create their headshots and portraiture. Seeing these pictures on social media and the internet  (i.e. this BLOG ) and on banners & posters in print, reminded me that pictures meet a purpose; to shout about what is happening, honouring the people behind a production.

Well and the process throughout. Seeing the same faces on another day in heaven; that is the National theatre costume hire, observing and capturing the moments through the lens. Made me realise all that Photography has to offer – holding onto moments and efforts, more then just an end product.

To then follow up the progress with a visit on rehearsal days I am all too excited to see everything coming together on performance days, for the audience to enjoy in it’s full splendour – with costumes.

With pictures to document the process and not just to show off the end result, I rest assured that upon reflection these pictures meet a fully rounded purpose and excite my Photographers heart.

Stay tuned for what has yet to happen.
