I’ve only had the good version so far so I can still say I love it!
It’s even better that it’s the third year on the trot that I’ve managed it, probably not that hard considering the photos are of their child, but it still makes me happy when the tears start.
It’s also the closest thing I have to a proper ongoing project, as I’m booked in till Robyn’s 21st, it’s going to be least another eighteen years, it’s always good to have something to look forward to I guess and I do as shooting and delivering for these guys is a joy.
I do however want to start a personal project, it’s just a question of what to shoot, I don’t want to rip anyone off or be judged against any of my friends, like I would have been if I’d have gone with my first thought of shooting the churches in Suffolk, my friend and inspiration Lee Thornberry shoots alot of churches, all be it all over the country.
I like his work far to much to try and compete, even if the competition is only in my head, which I think all photographers will agree thats where most of the competition and negative thoughts live.
We must remember to keep them there too, if they got out I’d never work again, considering how happy I am with customers crying, I don’t know how if deal with masses of negative feedback, I welcome some but who know how they’d react.
That’s what I find interesting about the up and coming exhibition at The Grand, have to wait and see what responses I get to my work.
The printing process has started so there is definitely no going back now, still have to plan out where to hang the work, I’m aiming for the walls, but not making any promises just yet.
Sticking with shots from The Rugby World Cup and also some “arty” images to go with the Art on the Prom” collaboration, the only disappointment is that it’s only a one day event, so mine is probably the shortest running exhibition in photographic history!
I am massively looking forward to it though. Roll on the next one maybe it’ll be a little longer running and feature my next project?
Just got to sort one out.
