2020 was a crazy year for many, I was one of the many. Most have been quick to label 2020 as a terrible year, understandably so. For myself it was a year full of ups and downs, many professional and many personal. For today though i'll just discuss the photography side of things.
Here I am, in the deep end without a clue. I do know one thing, luck may of gotten me the job, but I'll be the reason they keep me. With this mindset I know for a fact i have what it takes to excel at anything I set my mind too. I convinced myself that I am an underdog, I don't deserve to be here, I am under qualified and out of place. I have to and will work my ass of to stay here.
2020 was a wild year for many, it started for me as many previous years did, with me working away in a hot kitchen. Now if you haven't worked in a kitchen, i'll give you a brief rundown on what this particular kitchen was like.
I am often told, a plan is only as good as its back up plan. Once again this has proven true and I'll explain. I had booked the studio out for a pretty decent session, four hours if I recall correctly, heaps of time to set up, shoot and pack up. I was planning to do a fitness style shoot as I really wanted to have that in my portfolio. I messaged a model that I had worked with previously and knew would be perfect for this and would be great to work with (as always), created a moodboard, researched lighting setups and everything was going well, until it came to make up.
