I have always loved photography, but I was never any good with a camera. I could just never fully grasp the mechanics of traditional film photography. I was always better at being the person behind the person with the camera; the one art/creative directing shoots. Explaining what I wanted/needed, but never really being able to get the shot myself.
I eventually decided that it was time to learn how to use my camera properly. Now that I have some more knowledge, I’m really enjoying being able to take the shots myself. It’s been very rewarding being able to not only art direct but also being able to produce the images myself.
