It’s week 3 of the quarantine here in the U.K. and I just wanted to stay in touch and give you an update of what I’ve been up to these days and how I’m dealing with all this time in my hands.
Hey, hope everyone is safe out there.
I don’t even know how to start this post, life got busy since my last post with pictures from Frida’s house and a couple of weeks later, everything stopped. I don’t think anyone was prepared for this.
Hey, I’m back!
Excuse my lack of posts. If you have been following me on Instagram you’ve seen that I had a crazy busy start of the year, went away for half of January and then came back to a few more crazy busy days.
Happy New Year!
Nothing major happened over here during the festive season. We were just drinking coffee, reading books, watching films and waited for Christmas and the new year to be done because we are going to Mexico in a couple of weeks.
So it happened, my biggest fear, well one of many but probably the worse and the most embarrassing. I thought that was the end of me, the end of my business and that I would never ever be hired again as a professional food photographer.
One of my students asked the other day this: “You talk a lot about the artistic expression on our photography so what is and how do I find the art on my photography?”
I have a mixed feeling for Roma, I loved the city, the architecture, the culture, the language, the light, the history, the mysticism, romanticism and mythology of every corner but all this, at least to me was spoiled by three details that I wasn’t prepared for:
Let’s get straight to the point. My next few posts will be about Italy and the photos I took during our holiday last May. Yes, it’s taken me this long to sort them. But don’t worry, I still have that trip to Mexico from 2015 to sort. soon… maybe… hopefully!
I met Lauren at a model & photographer meet up in Brighton and after having a quick chat with her I knew we could do something together.
I’m still around, alive and well. That’s good news to the few of you that follow this blog and not very good news to the competition but hey!
Xav, how much should I charge as a photographer, how do I work it out? I’m ready to put myself out there and start charging for professional work.
If you’re following me on Instagram, you surely know that I was on a 7-day ban for using a bot that appears to be illegal according to their guidelines. Ok, I confess, guilty! I’ve been using a bot but there is a good reason for it: time efficiency!
