friends would take a month off from shooting so that they wouldn’t get burnt out. I take a month off and I go completely crazy so I started watching videos, shooting at different times, editing differently and really discovering more about photography and the industry that I’m in.
This year the only month I don’t have a wedding or event in is July so instead of focusing strictly on bookings I’ve been doing shoots with friends, trying new things and adding to my portfolio and my list of skills. There’s some things I’ve learned, but I was always nervous to to do them. I’ve stopped letting fear control me and started putting myself out there - it might not be for everyone, but it’s something creative that I enjoy.
Here are a few before and afters of some of my more recent work - Check it out.
Here are some of my favorite images from my “Month of Growth” so far.
