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.
But of course, I’m not going to show you what’s inside Frida’s house and museum! In this post, I’m going to show you what I found the most interesting and fascinating about the Casa-Museo Frida Kahlo in Mexico City.
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.
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?”
Since opening its doors in 2015 until the very last service this summer, I had the privilege and honor to document the life and work of the UK’s first zero-waste restaurant, SILO.
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.
So following up on my update from last week, first of all, I just wanted to make sure you all know I’m well and happy, nothing bad has happened. I also mentioned that Lewis Hamilton shared something about giving up and not finding the point of it all and shutting down completely and that made me think I should write something about it since I’ve been asked a few times how to keep going when nothing seems to work.
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!
We took Gracie and Denisa for a photo session by the sea:
This past January I hit the studio with some ideas for a food photography competition.
From time to time, I ask on my Instagram stories for people to send me ANY questions they have about photography, business, life or whatever they want me to comment on. A question that pops up a lot is how to make money as a photographer. In fact, quite a few times I’ve been approached by emerging photographers wanting to know how to make money taking pictures.
Brace yourselves because here is the definitive answer to this universal question:
I’ve got an intern, she’s starting in a couple of weeks and she’ll be learning the way of the warrior during the month of June.
I just sent her an email with a few questions like her choice of gear and editing software; I also asked her about her interest and views on photography. I’d like to know what she wants to photograph commercially and what she likes to photograph at a personal level. I want to know where her balance is.
